Gary Johnson Sends Morning Joe Into a Tailspin By Asking: “What is Aleppo?”

Former New Mexico Governor and current Libertarian Party presidential nominee Gary Johnson admitted his ignorance Thursday about the most populous city in Syria, and it sent the panel into a bit of shock.

On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” panelist Mike Barnacle asked Johnson his strategy for dealing with the widespread terrorism and raging civil war in Syria’s most populous city, to which he responded:

“What is Aleppo?”

After the Barnacle explained that it is “the epicenter of the refugee crisis,” Johnson called for joining Russia to stop the civil war to “diplomatically bring that at an end.”

Awkward.
