IT’S IN SYRIA: Libertarian Gary Johnson Dumbfounds MSNBC’s Hosts By Asking, “What Is Aleppo?” [VIDEO]

The Hill reports:

Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson on Thursday shocked the hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” by seeming to not know what the Syrian city of Aleppo is. What would you do if you were elected about Aleppo?” MSNBC political commentator Mike Barnicle asked Johnson minutes into an interview with the former New Mexico governor.

“And what is Aleppo?” Johnson asked. “You’re kidding,” Barnicle responded. “No,” Johnson said. “Aleppo is in Syria,” Barnicle said. “It’s the epicenter of the refugee crisis.”

“OK, got it, got it,” Johnson said. He then attempted to flex his foreign policy knowledge. “My god, can you believe it?” Scarborough asked co-host Mika Brzezinski after a commercial break. “It would be like asking, ‘What is Sarajevo?’ in 1991. It is stunning.”
