Sippin' on gin and juice would have been fine, but Snoop Dogg's admission that he smoked marijuana in the White House is raising eyebrows.
“Not in the White House, but in the bathroom,” Snoop told late-night host Jimmy Kimmel during an episode of the rapper's GGN web talk show.
The rapper bragged he pulled one over on security at the president's home.
“‘Cause I said, ‘May I use the bathroom for a second?’” he said. “And they said, ‘What are you going to do? Number One, or Number Two?’ I said, ‘Number Two.’ So I said, ‘Look, when I do the Number Two, I usually, you know, have a cigarette or I light something to get the aroma right.”
According to his account, the government official told him it would be OK to light a piece of napkin.
"And I said, ‘I’ll do that.’ And the napkin was this,” before taking a toke of marijuana.
If true, the incident might have occurred during a party the White House hosted for the Kennedy Center Honors. The rapper posted a video of himself fist-bumping Secretary of State John Kerry at the party.
On Tuesday, the White House said it had scrapped a presidential appearance on Kimmel's show over concerns about international affairs.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest said administration officials were in talks to have the president drop by during his fundraising swing through Los Angeles later this week but "ultimately elected not to have the president do that interview."
"That is at least in part related to the challenges of doing a comedy show in the midst of some of these other, more serious matters that the president's dealing with in the international scene," Earnest said.
