“The View” co-host Meghan McCain tried to trap Sen. Kamala Harris in a “weird lie” about what music she listened to the first time she tried weed, but Sunny Hostin quickly shut her down.
Harris told a radio show that she had smoked pot as a college student, and she cited a pair of rappers whose debut albums came out well after her university days were over.
“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.”
Hostin pointed out that marijuana was legal in California, and McCain asked why she would bring up two rappers who came out several years later.
“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.
Hostin headed McCain off, and said that Harris shouldn’t suffer any blowback for her hip-hop anachronism.
“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.”
Trump gets triggered by ‘threats of impeaching’ Kavanaugh ‘over made up stories’ of sexual misconduct

A dive into the ‘deadliest wave of the opioid epidemic’ is the most frightening book of the year — and mandatory reading
First a spoiler alert: Among the multiple apocalyptic revelations in Ben Westhoff’s Fentanyl, Inc.: How Rogue Chemists Are Creating the Deadliest Wave of the Opioid Epidemic is sour news for all hard drug users, from casual weekend abusers to full-time cocaine cowboys. In light of developments presented in this epic book in gruesome and unprecedented fashion, putting questionable substances up your nose, in your veins, or even on your tongue is highly discouraged from here on in.
“Any drug where it’s a powder or a pill, you just can’t trust it,” Westhoff said in an interview about his latest project. “There can be fentanyl in anything … [Home drug-testing kits] are getting very sophisticated, and there are websites you can consult, but in terms of going to a party and someone offering you some blow or something like that, it’s over.”
