Gary Johnson is pissed

Libertarian party presidential candidate Gary Johnson, who is doing around 6% in the national polls, was interviewed recently by HBO and the Guardian.

And Gary got angry. Really angry.

Johnson got ticked at HBO for asking him about being a spoiler, and apparently implying that he’s dumb. And then Johnson got upset at the Guardian for simply asking him about his tax policy.

 

First there’s Johnson with HBO:

gary-johnson-hbo

Then Johnson with the Guardian:

gary-johnson-2

Here’s the interview. For what it’s worth, it’s nice to see a real human being inside Gary Johnson. He does often come across as a bit of a lightweight. Though now he’s coming across a bit unhinged.

    Doesn’t matter. He did say there’s no chance the Libertarians will break the 2-party system in America — because it’s all but baked into our single-member district / plurality win Constitutional system.

    It’d be nice if you appreciated the power and responsibility of your individual vote, because a vote for Johnson/Weld is throwing your vote away. There has not been a single election in the last century or more where a 3rd party candidate achieved anything other than putting the opponent LEAST like them into office.

  10. Tuss Marie Lysén says:

    Weld has not endorsed Clinton!

  11. Tuss Marie Lysén says:

    You are right about this!

  12. Dover Bill says:

    Then why doesn’t he act like one?

  13. Houndentenor says:

    Yeah. My facebook “friends” who are Johnson supporters have been silent since Weld endorsed Clinton.

  14. Houndentenor says:

    Nothing makes a comment look nuttier than all caps. Even poor grammar and spelling don’t read as crazy.

  15. gratuitous says:

    Besides, if someone is really worried about Gary Johnson, serious man of serious questions, they can always hide out in Aleppo or with any world leader. Johnson will never find them.

  16. Moderator4 says:

    Please do not use all-caps when commenting. It is Internet shouting. Any further comments from you that are in all capital letters will be deleted.

  17. Tuss Marie Lysén says:

    THIS IS NOT A JOURNALIST, THIS IS A TROLL WITH A MICROPHONE. GOV GARY JOHNSON IS A DEDICATED, SERIOUS MAN WHO DESERVES SERIOUS QUESTIONS!

  18. Yes I knew about that. Wasn’t think øf that, though. You may be right.

  19. BeccaM says:

    I’m guessing Johnson is extra touchy right now because his running mate, Bill Weld, basically has thrown in the towel:

    While Weld said he will see his bid with Gary Johnson through to Election Day, he acknowledged that the Libertarian Party ticket, which has languished far behind in the polls, will not break “the two party monopoly” this year. He announced in early October that he would spend the rest of the campaign cycle speaking out against Trump.

    Some observers interpreted the last paragraph of his statement as a winking request for voters not to cast ballots for his own running mate.

    “Every citizen must be aware of the power and responsibility of each individual vote,” Weld writes. “This is not the time to cast a jocular or feel-good vote for a man whom you may have briefly found entertaining.”
