On Wednesday night, Libertarian Party presidential nominee Gary Johnson was a guest at a live town hall on MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews when he had another “Aleppo moment.”
When the ex-governor of New Mexico was asked by Matthews to name his favorite world leader, Johnson was unable to name a single person from any country.
When Johnson failed to name a person he tried to avoid the question by bringing up what put him in news headlines earlier this month.
‘I guess I’m having an Aleppo moment,’ he said.
Matthews asked: “Who’s your favorite foreign leader?”
“Any one of the continents, any country, just name one foreign leader that you respect and look up to, anybody.”
Johnson failed to respond with a name and Matthews said: “But I’m giving you the whole world!”
Johnson said, “I know, I know, I know,” before finally responding with “The former president of Mexico.”
Just when Johnson thought he may have been in the clear Matthews asked him which one and that’s when he said, “I’m having a brain freeze.”
Johnson’s running mate, former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld was able to blast off a couple names of former Mexican presidents before Johnson remembered the name was Vicente Fox.
“Fox! Thank you!” he said. “Fox, he was terrific.”
