What is Aleppo.
Andrew Sowers

Aleppo, up until very recently, had only one definition — the largest city in Syria and the site of an ongoing military confrontation that will continue for God knows how long.

It now has a second definition — whenever a candidate for President is unable to answer a question that any reasonable person would expect him to be able to answer (such as, “name a world leader you admire”), it will be known as “an Aleppo”, after Gary Johnson’s famous inquiry as to what Aleppo was.
