Gary Johnson's Painful, Second 'Aleppo Moment'

During an MSNBC Town Hall, Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson had a bit of a recall problem.

Gary Johnson really shouldn't be running for President. In fact, he's making a case for those who say weed fries brain cells.

During a town hall meeting yesterday with Chris Matthews, Johnson had a bit of a brain fart when asked to name his favorite foreign leader and drew a blank when trying to think of a former Mexican president, possibly Vicente Fox.

“I guess I’m having an Aleppo moment,” he said.

Poor Bill Weld looked like he wanted to be anywhere but there. It was really pathetic.
