Hooooooolllllllyyy shit. The first 20 seconds of that clip might possibly be the dumbest thing a politician has ever said, and that's saying a lot given the state of this election.
Then the dude just said every buzzword in the dictionary to try to sound like he knew what he was talking about. Unreal. Have politics always been such a shit show or am I just noticing now because I'm 24?
Also can I be honest for one second?
I don't even know who Gary Johnson is. I mean, I know he's one of 3rd party candidates in the election, and that he doesn't know anything about geography. That's about it. Before watching that clip I had no clue what this dude looks like. Is he white or black? Tall or short? Happy or fat? I had no clue.
He could've busted into my room like the Kool-Aid man, I'd just be like "who the hell is this?" Luckily I don't have to worry about him pulling a kool-aid man in my room since he probably thinks Rhode Island is part of New York.
Yesterday when asked about his lack geographic knowledge Johnson had this to say. (I'm pissed I found a video, now I know what this idiot looks like)
That's not a direct quote from Johnson, but if you watch the video that starts this blog, it's basically what he said on MSNBC yesterday. His lack of basic knowledge actually makes him a better candidate. That is a 1st Ballot Hall of Fame Spin Zone.
In a way I'm not even mad at the guy because I'm all about playing to your strengths. I have to do it all the time. As someone who is not a "classic beauty" I need to be funny, sweet and have awesome hair to get girls to even think about talking to me. Nobody is looking at me and thinks "OMG that dude is sooooo hot". I'm a BIG personality guy. So in a way I get what he's trying to do here. Use the fact that you know less about the world outside of the U.S. than the average 7th grader to your advantage.
I don't know much about life, but one thing I know is that confidence is everything. I've heard that my entire life. If you say something idiotic with confidence, people (other idiots) will eat it up. Now most people with brains will be able to see through you, but you will be able to convince some people to think "you know what he's right"
And in a way he's not wrong....technically, you can't fight someone if you don't know where they are. How are you supposed to go to war when you don't know where you're going? Knowing where other countries are, or who other world leaders are is why Wars happen. You can't hate someone you don't know exists.
But in all seriousness this dude is a joke. I know he isn't getting as much press because he has zero chance of winning the election, but oh my God how can a man this stupid get more than 4 people to vote for him?
P.S. Gary Johnson is 100% one of those idiots who still doesn't know the difference between "there and their" or "you're and your" and tries to say you're the stupid one for caring for about not looking like a moron. I'd bet my life he's sent a text saying "your a idiot".
