Gary Johnson is the Libertarian candidate running for president and he just made a major mistake, but will it totally discredit him?
When Gary Johnson joined the panel on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, the candidate thought this might be a great opportunity to be seen and heard by the American people.
Well, he was seen and heard, but for all the wrong reasons.
Gary Johnson made a big mistake at the wrong time. Watch the video below as Gary doesn’t know the answer to a very basic questions.
If you don’t know, Aleppo is the city in Syria that has seen some of the worst violence of the Syrian civil war.

The carnage in Aleppo is atrocious and it is the flash point for the war in Syria.
Dozens of images are surfacing daily on Twitter and other sites that show children dying and some being burnt, allegedly by Russian napalm.

When Gary Johnson was asked about Aleppo and didn’t have a clue what it was, he isn’t alone.
Many Americans have no idea that Aleppo is a city in Syria that has seen more death and destruction than we could comprehend. Children are being brutally killed and wounded and Obama and America sits indifferent.
One mistake by Gary won’t eliminate him. After everything that Trump has said, it is doubtful people will be talking about this next week.
Gary not knowing Aleppo hints that he is not serious about winning the presidency and isn’t putting in the work to win, but the real tragedy is what is happening in Syria and the fact that even Americans running for president don’t understand what is going on.
What do you think about a presidential candidate that is clueless about Aleppo? Let us know in the comments below.
