When Morning Joe’s Mike Barnicle asked Libertarian presidential nominee Gov. Gary Johnson what he’d do, as president, about Aleppo, Johnson calmly replied “and what is Aleppo?”
Chalk it up to Johnson spending a bit too much time mellowing out over a peace pipe (and bowl).

Any possible hope of Johnson sharing a debate stage with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton just evaporated with that one statement.
Barnicle: “You’re kidding.”
Barnicle: “Aleppo is in Syria. It’s the–ahh–it’s the epicenter of the refugee crisis…”
Johnson: “Okay, got it. Got it.”
If anyone was considering Johnson as a serious candidate, well, right, “got it.”
So Gary Johnson doesn't know where or what Aleppo is.
It would be a serious issue for a real Prez candidate. Less so for a protest vote.

I’m sorry, Libertarians, there’s no coming back from this.
Gary Johnson can't find Aleppo
Donald Trump can't find his taxes
Hillary Clinton can't find her emails

The good news for Gary Johnson is, most the people supporting him are too stoned to know what Aleppo is anyway.

Even liberals think this is disqualifying.
I’m afraid this is the end for the Johnson/Weld ticket.
