“The View” conservative co-host Meghan McCain tried to shame Democratic Senator Kamala Harris on Tuesday morning for talking about the music she listened to the first time she tried marijuana.
During a radio interview, Harris said that she had smoked weed when she was a college student in California while listening to rap albums. But McCain tried to shame her for it.
“The political aspect of Kamala’s interview is she’s caught in a weird lie,” McCain said. “She said she smoked listening to Tupac and Snoop Dogg. She graduated from Howard University in 1986. Tupac’s debut album came out in 1991, and Snoop’s in 1993. She’s either smoking marijuana after the time she said she is or she was listening to different albums or she’s misremembering.”
“This is getting play online,” she added. “The thing I would say to Sen. Harris is, I was impressed with her authenticity. Hillary Clinton was a beta test for not trying to be too cool. Don’t try and be too cool. You’re already cool — you have an interesting background, interesting career so far. Just try to fix our country.”
But co-host Sunny Hostin called out McCain, reminding her that marijuana was legal in California at the time.
“It reminded me about hot sauce in my bag,” McCain said, referring to comments Clinton made on the campaign trail about traveling with hot sauce in her purse.
But Hostin fired back at McCain, saying that she should be criticized for her taste in music.
“I will say that Trump has lowered the bar so low that it’s not going the matter if she smoked pot during Tupac or Biggie or Beyoncé or anything,” Hostin said.
Host Joy Behar chimed in: “In the age of Trump, I think marijuana should be mandatory, frankly.”
