Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson seemed to inadvertently reveal a stunning lack of foreign policy knowledge on Thursday morning when he didn\u0026#039;t know the name of the besieged Syrian city.\u0022What would you do about Aleppo?\u0022 Johnson was asked on MSNBC\u0026#039;s \u0022Morning Joe.\u0022\u0022What is Aleppo?\u0022 the former New Mexico governor responded.!!!Barnicle: \u0022What would you do...about Aleppo?\u0022Gary Johnson: \u0022What is Aleppo?\u0022Barnicle: \u0022Aleppo is in Syria.\u0022 https://t.co/bUjzLtkI2F— Bradd Jaffy (@BraddJaffy) September 8, 2016When asked if he was serious, Johnson replied that he was. Co-host Mike Barnicle briefly explained Aleppo\u0026#039;s plight and the Syrian refugee crisis, and Johnson finally answered the question:Okay, Got it. Well, with regard to Syria, I do think that it\u0026#039;s a mess. I think the only way that we deal with Syria is to join hands with Russia to diplomatically bring that at an end but when we’ve aligned ourselves with—when we have supported the opposition, the Free Syrian Army, the Free Syrian Army is also coupled with the Islamists, and then the fact that we\u0026#039;re also supporting the Kurds and this is, it\u0026#039;s just a mess. And this is the result of regime change that we end up supporting and, inevitably, these regime changes have led to a less safe world.\u0022So Aleppo is the center of a lot of people\u0026#039;s concerns across the planet about the terrible humanitarian crisis that is unfolding not only in Syria, but especially in Aleppo,\u0022 co-host Joe Scarborough said in response. \u0022You asked, \u0026#039;What is Aleppo?\u0026#039; Do you really think that foreign policy is so insignificant that somebody running for president of the United States shouldn\u0026#039;t even know what Aleppo is, where Aleppo is, why Aleppo is so important?\u0022\u0022I do understand Aleppo and I understand the crisis that is going on,\u0022 Johnson said. \u0022But when we involve ourselves militarily, when we involve ourselves in these humanitarian issues, issues, we end up with a situation that in most cases is not better, and in many cases ends up being worse.\u0022In an interview after his \u0022Morning Joe\u0022 appearance, Johnson said \u0022I\u0026#039;m incredibly frustrated with myself,\u0022 and \u0022went on to explain how he realizes he needs to get \u0026#039;smarter\u0026#039; on certain issues,\u0022 Politico reports.Some pundits attempted to use Johnson\u0026#039;s gaffe to slam all third-party candidates. However, the two major party candidates were also widely panned on Thursday for their Wednesday evening performance in a lackluster foreign policy forum.
