Tulsi Gabbard and Jimmy Dore hosted a “Rethinking Marijuana Roundtable” at NHTI last night. I asked Tulsi, “if CNN smoked more weed with Jimmy Dore…?” She responded, “they’d make better life choices.” I added, “and let you on the debate stage.”
I also had an interesting conversation with Jimmy about the time he interviewed me about being raided by the FBI. Obviously, it didn’t make much of an impression on him… But, considering the FBI went out of their way to lie about it on TV, I figured that the targeting of journalists, (which included warrantless entry and guns out), would be quite the scoop. But Jimmy, (or TYT) decided not to publish the interview. I tried not to bust his balls too hard– because at the end of the day, I know he’s a comedian, and he has weed-smoking to get back to! He was nice enough to chat a little bit afterward, and I got plenty of interviews with Tulsi’s staff and supporters regarding CNN’s keeping Tulsi out of the debate.
Here’s a photo snapped by Jason Lowenthal.
Many thanks to David T. Grophear for filming/ producing last night, and I wish both Tulsi and Jimmy many days of smoking weed, if they so choose it!
