Scottie Nell Hughes mistakenly lobs ‘mazel tov cocktail’ at Jay Z — and it backfires spectacularly
Trump surrogate Scottie Nell Hughes is not a fan of Jay Z, although she seems to be a little confused about exactly what she’s outraged over.
Case in point: During a recent CNN panel flagged by Deadspin, Hughes ripped the Clinton campaign for having Jay Z perform a GOTV concert on their behalf in Ohio. In particular, Hughes said she was disturbed by anti-police messages in one of the rapper’s music videos.
“One of his main videos starts off with a crowd throwing Mazel Tov cocktails at the police,” she said. “And that’s very much an anti-police message.”
Of course, the actual term Hughes was looking for as Molotov cocktails, as “mazel tov” is a Jewish phrase used to convey congratulations.
