Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson is most famous for asking “What is Aleppo?” during an interview when asked by the host what he would do about the crisis in Syria. Now, it appears that Johnson may have outdone himself.
While being interviewed by CNN about Saturday’s bombings in New York City and New Jersey and the stabbing attack in a Minnesota mall, Johnson made a major error when he said he was glad no body got hurt in the bombings.
“Well, first of all, just grateful nobody got hurt,” he stated.
You can watch his full remarks here:
Actually, 29 people were injured in the bombing in New York City. The only reason that number isn’t higher is because the second bomb failed to detonate and the terrorists placed the first bomb under a dumpster, which absorbed most of the blast.
Perhaps Johnson meant to say that he was glad no one was killed, but that isn’t what he said. Saying that no one got hurt in these attacks is one of the dumbest things he possibly could have said.
Johnson, who can’t even get to the the 15 percent polling average necessary to be in the debates, has shown that he really doesn’t have what it takes to lead this country, especially in a time of crisis.
While Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton’s response to the attacks had some questioning if she was on drugs, Republican nominee Donald Trump was much more forceful and tough, vowing that as president he would actually fight the people behind these attacks.
On Monday morning, the FBI released the name of one suspect in the bombings: Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28. Until authorities find him and bring him in, there could still be more bombs out there, so stay safe, everyone.
