An upbeat and self-confident Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate for president, is on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. He’s asked what he would do about Aleppo. He looks confused. What is Aleppo? Asked if he was kidding he repeated what is Aleppo? When told it was in Syria he says oh that and it you could see the scale of his mistake dawn upon him. He is pounded about Syria, and was he not seeing the articles and stories and footage of the disaster in Aleppo? Yes, he said, though was unable to say anything particularly coherent. He left after a couple minutes, completely deflated. What is Aleppo was trending on Twitter before he was even off the set.
I don’t think the Libertarian Party ever thinks about foreign policy. It’s all just cut taxes, get rid of business regulations and, oh, by the way, we don’t really listen to the religious nuts. Somebody said Libertarians are Republicans who watch Star Trek.
