In a normal interview turned downright weird, Libertarian Presidential Nominee Gary Johnson stuck out his tongue in an interview with MSNBC's Kasie Hunt. In the wake of his "What is Aleppo?" gaffe, Johnson has been working hard to prove that he's a legitimate contender — and that he could contend with Donald Trump and Senator Hilary Clinton.
How's that going for him?
I interviewed Gary Johnson this week. We talked about Trump, Clinton, Syria - and the debates, to which he said: 😛 https://t.co/W0VKER4FgY

Twitter users reacted to the surprise tongue-wag:

And yesterday, Mother Jones proved, once again, that Gary Johnson won't be the next president by releasing a 2011 National Press Club clip in which he said, "The long-term view is that in billions of years the sun is actually going to grow and encompass the earth, right?!"
George Takei spoke for everyone with this reaction:
Those who care about climate change shouldn't vote Johnson, who's said the sun will envelope us one day anyway. #Huhhttps://t.co/pVqT3J6qU9 — George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) September 22, 2016
And The Onion was a little too honest with its analysis:
