Gary Johnson Struggles to Identify Aleppo
OK, anyone who is still wishing upon a magic star for someone to deliver them from the Trump-v-Clinton choice, is going to have to knuckle up and choose a side, because - shock and awe! - the Libertarian fucktard turns out to be a Libertarian fucktard.
Poor Prickly City. They’ve been all-in for Gary Johnson, and now he’s shivved them.
The original is here, and in the wide shot after he blows the question, you can see a whole bunch of pissed-off looking people, arms crossed, looking at him like he just got caught drunk-fucking the family dog at the kiddie birthday party.
The Washington Post, already inimical to third-party candidates the threaten their cozy relationships with the calcified, ossified two-party system, went for the jugular:
It would be easy to describe Gary Johnson’s appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Thursday as having doomed his third-party candidacy for president were it not for the fact that his candidacy was already doomed. The English language lacks a good way to describe something that was already in very bad shape and then, somehow, becomes far worse rather dramatically. Like if the Titanic had begun sinking but then blew up.
Meanwhile, Buzzfeed either twisted the knife, or tried to have Johnson’s back with the equally ignorant DudeBros who rely on that site for their news content, with a “Can you find Aleppo” game, that’s kind of like a horrific “Where’s Waldo?” if Waldo were a toddler whose limp body was being tossed around by beach break
I hate this fucking campaign season. Hate. It.
