Colbert Offers Recap of 'Aging Clown' Gary Johnson's Worst Month Ever

Ryan Schwartz

When it comes to Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, the jokes pretty much write themselves.

Stephen Colbert on Thursday took a deep dive into the presidential hopeful’s most recent campaign flubs, which have included his inability to identify Aleppo, the epicenter of the Syrian refugee crisis, or name a single international leader he admires who is currently living.

“Libertarians have long been waiting for a smart, respectable candidate to represent their values — and the wait continues,” Colbert concluded.

Referring to New Mexico’s former governor as an “aging clown without makeup,” the Late Show host let his clip packages do most of the work, which featured Johnson’s kooky explanation of global warming and a bizarre interview where he answered a question while biting his tongue. And while the polls aren’t in Johnson’s favor, Colbert argued that the third-party nominee is only the second craziest candidate in the running.
