MSNBC host Joe Scarborough on Thursday wasted no time in ripping Libertarian presidential nominee Gary JohnsonGary Earl JohnsonBiden broadened Democratic base, cut into Trump coalition: study New Mexico lawmakers send recreational marijuana bills to governor Judge throws out murder convictions, releases men jailed for 24 years MORE's response to a question about Aleppo, Syria's largest city.
"What is Aleppo?" Johnson asked minutes into his interview, visibly shocking "Morning Joe" panelists seated at the table
Scarborough, who appeared on camera remotely, immediately slammed Johnson.
"So, Aleppo is the center of a lot of people's concerns across the planet about the terrible humanitarian crisis that is unfolding, not only in Syria, but especially in Aleppo," Scarborough said.
"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?" Scarborough asked.
"No, I do understand Aleppo and I understand the crisis that is going on," Johnson insisted, pivoting to speak about avoiding military involvement in the crisis.
