Daily Beast reports:
Introducing a “lightning round” during Wednesday evening’s Libertarian town hall on MSNBC Wednesday night, host Chris Matthews said, “This is where we have fun, and maybe make some news.” Third-party candidate Gary Johnson ended up doing the latter of the two when he was asked who his favorite world leader is and drew a complete blank. Johnson’s running mate, Bill Weld, attempted to save him by jumping in to name recently deceased former Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres as his favorite, but Matthews wouldn’t let Johnson off the hook, asking him to name any foreign leader who is currently alive. “Any continent, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Asia, South America, Africa, name a foreign leader that you respect,” Matthews implored.
“I guess I’m having an Aleppo moment,” Johnson said..Of course, as a representative of the Libertarian Party, he could have just said "I don't respect any foreign leaders. They are all interventionists and the expansion of government and I am for shrinking government."
What a clown.
And. his sidekick Weld didn't help any by using the opportunity to hug Israel and eventually come up with the great Syrian statist importer Angela Merkel.
There have been some bad Libertarian Party candidates but nothing close to these clueless opportunists.
