Ryan has a chance to admit ‘mistake’ in endorsing Trump

Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson said House Speaker Paul Ryan can still say he made a mistake in endorsing Donald Trump — even if that doesn’t mean getting behind the Libertarian ticket.

“It’s too bad that Paul Ryan has really stuck his neck out, if you will, in endorsing Donald Trump,” Johnson said in an interview with CNN to air Sunday.
Johnson pointed out that Ryan has had to distance himself from many of Trump’s comments — most recently his ban on Muslim immigration.

“I think Paul Ryan has an opportunity here to say, ‘Look, I made a mistake.’ I’m not saying that results in an endorsement of me, but come on, the statements that he’s making — he’s made 100 statements that would disqualify any other presidential candidate from running and yet all you have to do is turn the page and tomorrow it will be 102.”

Washington (CNN)Libertarian presidential hopeful Gary Johnson is sticking up for marijuana after 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney last week said smoking the drug “makes people stupid.”

“I do not agree with that,” Johnson told CNN’s Erin Burnett in an interview scheduled to air Sunday on “OutFront.” “As someone who has used marijuana, I do not agree with that.”

Johnson, who was the governor of New Mexico from 1994-2003, has been an advocate forlegalizing marijuana since 1999. In his interview with Burnett, he suggested that marijuana “competes with legal prescription painkillers and drugs that statistically kill 100,000 people a year.”

  1. Gary Johnson made an even bigger mistake by selecting William Weld as VP candidate. It has damaged the credibility of the LP. Weld supported Barrack Obama, among other totalitarian type politicians.
