Gary Johnson couldn’t name a single living foreign leader during his MSNBC townhall

Appearing on MSNBC’s Hardball this Wednesday, Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson, sitting alongside his running mate Bill Weld, had what he called an “Aleppo moment” when host Chris Matthews asked him to name who his “favorite foreign leader” was.

“Who’s my favorite?” Johnson asked nervously.

Matthews, seemingly smelling blood, pressed on.

“Any,” Matthews clarified. “Just name anywhere in the country – any one of the continents, any country. Name one foreign leader that you respect.”

As Johnson paused with an exasperated look on his face, Weld chimed in that his was the late Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres.

“I’m talking about living,” Matthews shot back, prompting laughter from the audience.

“You gotta do this. Anywhere, any continent,” Matthews pressed.

“I guess I’m having an Aleppo moment – in the former president of Mexico…” Johnson stammered.

“But I’m giving you the whole world!” Matthews said incredulously.

After thinking about it some more, Johnson repeated himself, saying, “The former president of Mexico.”

“Which one?” Matthews asked.

Johnson sighed and declared he was having a “brain freeze.”

Eventually they agreed that the one Johnson was thinking of was Vicente Fox.

    kris – I never get tired of the mom-song. LOVE it.While we spend our time talking, telling, and teaching – we’re shaping young minds. We’re helping our children live by the credos we attempt to live by! We have to set the bar high, so if they shoot for the moon, at least they’ll clear the barn. Someday.In our stories, we show. We weave words together to create mental images – and the telling’s off limits. THANK HEAVEN! LOL.Great post. Thanks for sharing.~Ash

    It is always nice to have a few big names to back your company up. However using only big names can make people skeptical and question whether the company just bought it’s testimonials. Throw in a good number of regular names and it will show that not big name people back you up, but also everyday people too.
