Republican presidential candidate Gary Johnson appeared on Fox News to debate a pseudo Obama. While the impersonator was intended to be comical, host John Stossel, who posed as the moderator, said “what [the impersonator] says tonight will be almost entirely the president’s own words.”
The seven-minute debate focused on the American economy. According to MediaMatters.org, Stossel also did this stunt with Ron Paul.
Fox News proves time and time again why they are a laughable news organization. All in all, I get the joke. The only problem is that it wasn’t funny. Ironically in fact, it needed some comic relief. Maybe Gary Johnson should focus more on that campaign he so boldly speaks of than participating in this juvenile nonsense.
Sidenote: I do agree with Johnson’s stance on Obama’s foreign policy.
