Gary Johnson Reveals His Ill-Fated Get Rich-Quick Plan as Libertarian Presidential Candidate
Gary Johnson does not anticipate a 2020 presidential run, the Libertarian candidate revealed on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Wednesday night when asked by "undecided voter" Ken Bone.
And even though Johnson is currently leading among active military personel, he's far from breaking apart the two party system.
"I feel like your message would resonate a lot more if you were rolling a joint while you said these things," Jimmy Kimmel told the Libertarian. Johnson admitted he hadn't rolled a joint in "probably 20 years."
"It's like riding a bike," Kimmel told him. "You just rode 70 miles."
"90 actually," Johnson corrected the host. He then explained his ingenious fundraising idea.
"Anyway, I thought when I was running for President in 2012, I thought that everyone that smoked marijuana, 100 million Americans plus, would give me a dollar. And it didn't work out at all, so I gotta tell you this is a dead end right here."
"They were too lazy to send you money," Kimmel pointed out.
"That or they're not political. They don't get out and vote," Johnson mused.
Kimmel aked if there were any exciting fringe benefits to Johnson's candidacy.
"Do people bring you weed at your events?" Kimmel asked.
"They do," Johnson told him.
"I've been on the chair lift in Taos, skiing is my passion," Johnson said. "I've been on the chair lift and a guy looks over [and says] 'man you look like Gary Johnson.' I said 'Oh, I get that all the time' and he goes, "Yeah, Gary's a lot bigger than you are... [but if] you are Gary Johnson I'd be so honored if you'd smoke some reefer with me."
