Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Says Its Okay For A President To Smoke Weed | TMZ TV


HOW ARE YOU DOING, CONGRESSWOMAN? OK, IT’S A.O.C. IN D.C., LET’S TALK T.H.C. I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT, THEY ARE STARTING TO ACCEPT SMOKING MARIJUANA TO BECOME PRESIDENT. AT LEAST SHE UNDERSTOOD THE QUESTION. HE IS TALKING ABOUT PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE KAMALA HARRIS. SHE WAS ON THE BREAKFAST CLUB AND ASKED IF SHE EVER SMOKED WEED? I HAVE. IT WAS A LONG TIME AGO, BUT YES. THERE IS NOTHING MORE INHERENTLY DAMAGING ABOUT MARIJUANA THAN SAY LEGAL SUBSTANCES, ALCOHOL. SHE IS AN EXPERT IN THIS, SHE WAS A BARTENDER. THAT’S A POINT. YOU DON’T WANT PRESIDENT SMOKING DOOBIES? WHY NOT? WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE? THE DIFFERENCE IT’S ACCEPTED TO HAVE A HIGHBALL. THAT’S WHAT ALL PRESIDENTS HAVE DONE OVER HISTORY. DERRICK, IS THERING? IMMORAL ABOUT MARIJUANA THAT WOULD NOT BE IMMORAL ABOUT ALCOHOL? NO. THEN STOP TALKING! WOULD IT BE OK TO HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO SAID THAT THEY DO SMOKE? I DON’T CARE, YEAH, I DON’T CARE. IT’S FINE WITH ME. WELL, THERE YOU HAVE IT. FOLKS, WE’RE GOING TO NEED TO ORDER AN ASS LOAD OF PIZZA ROLLS. VAN TAUGHT ME A LESSON, MADE FUN OF KAMALA HARRIS A LONG, LONG TIME AGO, I DID A RADIO INTERVIEW, YEAH, I STARTED SMOKING IT SIX WEEKS AGO TO GET SOME SLEEP. I REALIZED I DID EXACTLY THE SAME THING. SURE WEED HELPS YOU SLEEP, BE HONEST, YOU LIKE SMOKING WEED. I DON’T DISLIKE IT. [LAUGHTER] DAMN, WE’RE GOOD AT THESE POLITICAL STORIES! CATCH YOU NEXT TIME, A.O.C.
