Donald Trump Trolls Jeb Bush for Smoking Weed 40 Years Ago

Published

Donald Trump has once again taken to social media to criticize fellow Republican presidential candidates. And this time, the hate has been directed at Jeb Bush for an innocent admission he made during last week's GOP debate about smoking marijuana as a teen. 

Trump's campaign compiled a series of Bush's more controversial comments into an Instagram video, wrapping it up with the following Bush sound bite: "So, 40 years ago, I smoked marijuana." The video then overlays the type, "Are we sure it was only 40 years ago?" 

 

Jeb has been confused for forty years…

Bush's spokesman responded with an exasperated tweet, noting that Trump was "running out of steam." 

 

Considering that support for marijuana legalization is at an all-time high in the United States with 52 percent of Americans supporting the repeal of prohibition, you would think that Trump might want to avoid alienating over half of the population. Guess not.
