“If You Don’t Know Where Aleppo Is, You Can’t Bomb It” Says Larry Sharpe In Defense of Gary Johnson

Last night’s episode of the Governor’s House with Larry Sharpe became heated when someone commented on the livestream “What’s an Aleppo?”

Among Sharpe’s commentary on universal basic income, New York’s new free college program and unions (and someone calling in asking if Larry had seen our Presidential Poll), was a response to a viewer seeming to seek to make a crack at Gary Johnson’s infamous slip on MSNBC where a reporter asked “What is Aleppo” and Johnson did not know is was the capitol of Syria.

“Shame on you for doing that” began Sharpe and then explained how he was not embarrassed at all by being Gary Johnson supporter and retorted the Johnson jab with “if you don’t know where Aleppo is, you can’t bomb it.”

The Governor candidate continued by praising Johnson for being honest and saying that it’s a flaw he would love to see in his president. “If you give Gary Johnson advisors, you’d have an amazing president […] because he’s a good man, because he’s a good person.”
