Here’s how Gary Johnson went down the tubes this morning:
Mike Barnicle: “What would you do if you were elected, about Aleppo?”
Gary Johnson: “About?”
Johnson: “And what is Aleppo?”
Barnicle: “……. You’re kidding.”
Barnicle: “Aleppo is in Syria.. It’s the uh.. It’s the *epicenter* of the refugee crisis..”
Johnson: “ok. Got it. Got it.”
Johnson: “Well.. With regard to *Syria*, um… I do think that it’s a mess.. blah blah blah blah blah”
That was the end of Gary Johnson’s attempt to become President of the United States of America.
To begin this conversation with the proper disclosure, I had NO IDEA what Aleppo was before today’s events.
This is because I’ve never been to Syria, I’m never going to GO to Syria, and I can’t possibly give the first flying **** what anything in Syria is named.
However, unfortunately for Gary Johnson, I’m also not running for PotUS, so it’s entirely unimportant whether I can name any locations in Syria or even point out a Syrian in a lineup.
The problem is that it’s the President’s job TO give a **** what’s happening in Syria as well as in a bunch of other places around the world, because the President is going to have to make decisions about troop deployments, drone strikes, embargoes, black ops, and probably a hundred other things I’ve never even heard of because I don’t have any security clearance.
So this is a major big deal. Sucks to be you.
Here’s the video of Gary Johnson self-destructing:
1 minute and 30 seconds into that video, Joe Scarborough drives the nail into Johnson’s political coffin with this line:
Scarborough: “um… So, Aleppo is the center of a lot of people’s concerns across the planet about, uh.. the terrible humanitarian crisis that’s unfolding, not only in Syria, but especially in Aleppo… You asked “What is Aleppo?”… Do you really think that foreign policy is so insignificant that somebody running for President of the United States shouldn’t even know what Aleppo is? Where Aleppo is? Why Aleppo is so important?”
Joe just hit a stain. Finito.
um… What Had *HAPPENED* WAS…
For reference to what I’m discussing, I mix songs soundcloud.com/BillCammack, so I watch a lot of tutorials and interviews in order to gain new philosophies and techniques to consider adding to my repertoire.
I watched someone interview a mixer and the question was “What do you think about parallel compression?” and the answer was “Never used it.”
That was the end of my attention to that interview.
That isn’t the answer to “Parallel Compression?” if you’re at the level of study that I’m trying to learn from.
The answer is “I tried it and didn’t like what it added to the process and/or the sound, so I discarded it.”
“Never used it” means you ignored a well-documented technique and never even bothered to see if your mixes could be improved by trying it out, so how do I know how many other techniques you’ve disregarded?
Similarly.. I don’t have to know anything about Syria, but the President of the United States of America most certainly does.
What is is that you were doing with your time instead of studying foreign policy?
How do you expect to graduate from Governor to President without understanding what’s going on in the rest of the world to the best of your ability without clearance?
In case you think this was a trick that was played on Johnson by “Morning Joe”, listen to him stumble and bumble his way into attempting to apologize for his gaffe:
“I’m sorry”… 😀 haha I’ve explained things to people way better when I was completely drunk.
No credit. Thanks for playing. You lose. Don’t let the door hit’cha where the Good Lord split’cha.
To The Victor Belong The Spoils
This is going to result in Hillary Clinton getting more votes to add to what should be the most embarrassing landslide win in Presidential election history when she crushes Trump on November 8th.
This is because Trump doesn’t know what he’s talking about any more than Johnson does… Actually, Trump probably knows way less than Johnson.
We’ll never know this, though, because people like Matt Lauer know that Trump isn’t a real candidate.
Because of that, they don’t press him for specifics and let him get away with saying that he isn’t going to mention specifics because XYZ.
He isn’t going to tell you what his foreign policy is because the enemy would find out.
He isn’t going to show you his tax returns because he’s being audited.
And then people like Lauer let him get away with this over and over instead of just saying one time evAr in life “You don’t know what you’re talking about, do you?”
I haven’t determined why this is, yet. Trump has said around a million incredibly stupid things like killing non-combatants and dropping nukes on Europe, and Johnson didn’t know ONE THING and he’s finished.
The Democrats probably put the kibosh on taking Trump out because he sucks so hard as a candidate.
Replacing Trump would only INCREASE the chances of a Republican win.
The marching orders may be to assist him in looking as stupid as possible for as long as possible so Hillary can cruise to victory.
Buy A Clue
So it’s too late for Gary Johnson to add the Google Earth app to his phone and figure out where Aleppo is.
He’s already informed the world on live television that he’s just like me and he doesn’t give a flying **** what’s happening over there, so he clearly doesn’t have any plans about how to fix something he’s never thought about.
Just like how mixers who never tried parallel compression have no idea whether their mixes would be better with it or not.
So what’s the point of electing someone President who doesn’t know anything more than I do about Aleppo? 😀 hahaha Being that we *BOTH* found out what and where it is today? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Besides becoming a stain, Gary Johnson is the canary in the coal mine.
Trump had better start studying and figure out something specific to say about foreign policy before Hillary catches him with a similar reference in a live debate and Trump also goes the way of the dodo.
