Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson on Tuesday defended his lack of knowledge of world affairs, suggesting on MSNBC that foreign policy expertise, or even an understanding of where international leaders are from, is what leads to military conflict.
You know what? The fact that somebody can dot the is and cross the ts on a foreign leaders geographic location then allows them to put our military in harms way, Johnson told MSNBCs Andrea Mitchell.
The former New Mexico governor has been widely panned for a pair of foreign policy gaffes that have weighed down his long-shot candidacy. First, Johnson responded to a question on MSNBCs Morning Joe about the ongoing civil war in Syria by asking his questioner, What is Aleppo?
His inability to recognize Syrias largest city, and the epicenter of its humanitarian crisis, was compounded last week in another MSNBC appearance when host Chris Matthews asked Johnson to name one foreign leader that you respect and look up to. Johnson could not name one and admitted that he was having another Aleppo moment.
Five days after the interview, Andrea, I still cant think of a world leader that I respect, Johnson said Tuesday. I mean, having never been involved in politics before, I will tell you I held a lot of people in this country on pedestals thinking they were role models. I got to meet them up front and personal and found out they were empty suits. They werent about issues. They werent about doing what was best. They were about getting reelected.

This guy is a mess! Lol.
Groucho, Chico, Harpo, and Allepo.
Tells me he didn’t even bother to pay attention in grade school and continues to make excuses for his lack of doing homework. Uh, I have so many comments I could make about why this person showed himself unfit for public office by this comment, but he’s not getting anywhere so no more rant.
I will say however that I agree with his statement about people who get elected only focusing on reelection. I do celebrate the exceptions to that general rule tho.
In an ordinary world that would be just plain crazy, but you have to admit - compared to Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama- it is a step up from the current state of affairs
Gary Johnson just said that he’s too stupid to be dangerous.
Spoken like a true stoner, duuuude...
He can’t wipe his ass if he can’t find it with both hands.
It’s like he is trying to siphon his votes away.
They should just put Gary’s face on the zig-zag papers cover.
Yeah, well it's not like it takes an Einstein to realize that now is it?
Whoever or what ever votes for this clown is an idiot.
I’ll be he can’t name two adjacent states either. Peter Principle at work here.
I’ll bet he can’t name two adjacent states either. Peter Principle at work here. And please get rid of that bong.
Yup. The current crop of corrupt cretins knows exactly where Aleppo is, as they’re practicing forty different types of treason there.
IMHO he was put there to help Hillary, is having the opposite effect, so he deliberately is tanking.
True, but since you and i know that also it makes us good presidential candidates, right? LOL.... /sarc
He might've firebombed Berlin, MD and liberated Paris, TX.
