STFU About Johnson's Aleppo Gaffe

So Gary Johnson didn’t know the name of a Syrian city. I’m sure most of us didn’t know about it either until his gaffe. He’s since apologized for his ignorance, and has promised to make himself more informed about the issues.

Meanwhile, when was the last time Clinton or Trump apologized for any of their “gaffes”, let alone their outright lies? Johnson may be slightly ignorant, but’s he’s also humble enough to admit his mistakes and apologize for them.

Trump, on the other hand, lies repeatedly on national television about how he opposed the Iraq War without being called out on his blatant dishonesty. Gary Johnson’s Aleppo gaffe was bad. But Trump’s consistent ignorance is worse. Far worse!
