Libertarian Party presidential nominee Gary Johnson had another clueless moment that’ll leave you speechless. Over the weekend, Johnson said he was “grateful that nobody got hurt” in the New York City explosion when in fact twenty-nine people were injured.
“First of all, [I’m] just grateful that nobody got hurt. Secondly, law enforcement is on the scene, responders are on the scene. If there’s anything I learned having been governor of New Mexico for eight years is that these people really do care, they are really qualified.”
Almost immediately after the explosion in Chelsea, news outlets reported that there were in fact people who were injured. Although it’s quite astonishing that someone could have missed that detail, I’m not one bit surprised that it was him. It actually feels somewhat like deja vu.
Johnson was recently mocked relentlessly when he showed us just how much knowledge he truly lacked in foreign policy. During an interview with MSNBC, Johnson was asked about the crisis in Aleppo, Syria in which he replied, ” What’s Aleppo”? No joke. The entire panel sat there stunned that he was completely stumped.
So, not only was this presidential nominee unable to answer a basic question regarding the refugee crisis in the war-torn Syrian city, but he failed to educate himself on an explosion that happened right here. The last thing we need is a space cadet running this country completely misinformed and ignorant to what is going on around us.
