Kamala Harris goes ’21 Jumpstreet’ with smoking pot story to Snoop and Tupac years ahead of their first albums

Senator Kamala Harris and former California AG continues her 2020 presidential bid with a radio interview which involved the all important, Bill Clinton question: Did she smoke pot?

“I have and I inhaled, I did inhale,” she said, laughing, “I just broke news!”

During the interview on The Breakfast Club, Harris claimed that she listened to Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur while getting high.

Here’s the problem: Harris graduated from Howard in 1986 and law school in 1989. Snoop Dogg, then known as Snoop Doggy Dogg, didn’t get started until 1992 and Tupac’s “career did not take off until the early 1990s when he debuted in Digital Underground’s ‘Same Song’ from the soundtrack to the 1991 film Nothing but Trouble.

Oops.

Twitter took notice.

Kamala Harris said she smoked weed while listening to Snoop & Tupac.

Kamala graduated from college in the 80’s.

Snoop & Tupac didn’t release their first albums til the 90’s.

This is basic rap history.

Reason had some fun: “So either Harris was baked enough to time travel or she hit the bong after being in school. Not cool for a candidate whose slogan is “speaking truth, demanding justice.” Most likely, she’s just trying to curate a playlist that sends the right message. In this, she’s hardly alone. We can recall, for instance, the way in which Al Gore quickly morphed from hosting a Senate panel on “porn rock” in 1985 (which included testimony from his wife Tipper, who headed up the Parents Music Resource Center, a group committed to combating sex, drugs, and satanism in popular entertainment) to becoming the world’s most public—if unconvincing—Grateful Dead fan just a few years later. In 2008, then-candidate Barack Obama dictated an iPod playlist to Rolling Stone that was curiously inclusive of just about every possible demographic that might vote for him. Especially in an age of forced transparency, why do politicians feel a need to do this?”

All that matters to the left is that Harris is pro-pot:

Later Monday, Harris reiterated her support for the federal legalization of marijuana.

“Let me be clear: it’s time we legalized marijuana at the federal level,” Harris tweeted. “Marijuana laws are not applied or enforced in the same way for all Americans, many whose lives have been ruined by these regressive policies. We must change the system.”
