Gary Johnson: The danger and the appeal

Hosted by

This year's Libertarian presidential candidate is Gary Johnson, former Republican Governor of New Mexico. Earlier this month on MSNBC, he failed to answer what seemed like an obvious question about Aleppo.

This week, Gary Johnson was on a voter town hall with MSNBC's Chris Matthews and was asked to name a foreign leader he could respect.

Today, the Chicago Tribune endorsed Gary Johnson, following the Detroit News and leading papers in New Hampshire, Virginia and North Carolina. Is support for Johnson a statement of principle or a wasted vote with potentially dangerous consequences? We hear from political analyst Nomiki Konst , host of The Filter on Sirius radio. She was a delegate to the Democratic convention, and a Bernie Sanders supporter on the Platform Committee.
