5 Reasons That “Aleppo” Could Save Gary Johnson’s Campaign

Johnson, Aleppo

As presented earlier in a piece by Liberty Viral, Libertarian Presidential nominee Gary Johnson appeared to have a major gaffe moment when he asked MSNBC’s Mike Barnicle, “What is Aleppo?”

Fortunately for Johnson, it seems there are ways to utilize this gaffe to highlight and rejuvenate his campaign.

Even though it appears that Johnson’s gaffe shows a weakness of foreign policy. It has brought a firestorm of media coverage. His name has appeared on CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC all morning long, bringing him much needed attention. This coverage could bring him more name recognition, and allow voters to see that there is another voice out there other than Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.

As the old adage goes, there is no such thing as bad press.
