In an interview with MSNBC's Kasie Hunt, Johnson tried a fresh response to the question of how a debate berth would allow him to actually win the election.

“It wouldn’t have anything to do with my debate performance," said Johnson, who then stuck his tongue through his teeth. "I think I could stand up there for the whole debate and not say anything, and emerge as the leader."

"He was just having fun," explained Johnson spokesman John LaBeaume. "Lighthearted."

wow what a weirdo! let's vote for the guy who makes fun of disabled people, disparages women, talks about the size of his penis on national television, and has implied he'd fuck his daughter if she wasn't his daughter

Awkward. I guess Johnson doesn't know how to start good controversy.

This is just a guess, but I think he'd have gotten more and better media by open carrying at a campaign event... There's a hundred other things to think of that would have caused enough controversy for the media to pay attention to his campaign. Sticking out his tongue is not one of them.

LOL Influenza. I don't vote, okay? So get a hold of yourself. I swear, Trump lives rent-free in so many heads! He's all they can talk about.

That would have been much better! DH thought he was trying to flirt with her, and failed utterly. Dude's got zero game.

He was bad enough, but when he tossed Petersen's gift to him-his "prized" flintlock pistol-in the trash, I lost what little respect I had for him. What an ill-mannered baby. If he had any class, he would have thanked him for the incredible gesture and refused it rather than accept it and throw it in the garbage.

Maybe he lost too many brain cells (https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/brain-cells-into-thin-air/) climbing Everest, an insane thing to do IMO.

He accepted the gun when Austin Petersen offered it to him in Petersen's concession speech. Then Petersen said he wouldn't support Weld, and that's when Gary threw the gun away. It's not as if Gary accepted the gun purposely just to throw it in the trash.

I think climbing Mount Everest, and the six other highest peaks on each continent, is an admirable feat. I'd like a president who does things like that. There's a lot to admire about self-starter, bootstrap people.

Oh well then! I guess that's different...NOT. He still threw it in the trash. He should have given it back to Austin as soon as he started ripping (rightly so) on Weld. The man has no class.

YMMV on the Everest madness.

I'm glad I'm not a Libertarian, this guy is an embarrassment. They should have just gone ahead and nominated the strip on stage guy.

Didn't we figure out it was a cheap souvenir tchotchke?

Yes, it was definitely a replica.

Honestly, Peterson had it coming. He publicly endorsed Gary, gave him the gun, and then immediately told the world he stood against Gary's VP choice.

While he had every right to do so, it's an insulting thing to do to your party's standard-bearer.

It was super creepy because the woman was a serious interviewer on a park bench & attractive.

If it was Rosie O'Donnell on comedy skit or something he should have punched her in the face.
