'Breakfast Club' hosts defend Kamala Harris over weed

Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy, hosts of the nationally syndicated "The Breakfast Club" radio show, defended Kamala Harris over comments she made about her past marijuana use while on their show.

During an appearance on Feb. 11, Harris said she smoked marijuana in college while listening to Snoop Dogg and Tupac.

"What were you listening to when you was high?" Charlamagne Tha God asked her. "What was on? What song was on?"

"Was it Snoop?" DJ Envy asks.

"Yeah, definitely Snoop," Harris laughed. "Tupac for sure."

A number of social media users pointed out that Harris graduated from Howard University in 1986, and finished law school in 1989, but Snoop Dogg and Tupac's first albums didn't come out until 1993 and 1991, respectively.

Both had made music prior to their first albums, but Harris was done with school when they did.

Fox & Friends did a segment on Harris' comments, with host Steve Doocy stating, "she doesn't remember what she was listening to when she was smoking."

During a Thursday appearance on MSNBC, Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy accused Fox News of "lying" about what Harris said.

"I mean, we wanted to humanize her, not just talk about politics, talk about what she likes, what she does," DJ Envy said. "And I asked what she listens to and she said she listens to Snoop Dogg and Tupac at the same time my co-host was still talking about the marijuana and it was just a funny exchange but she was actually answering me and people took it that she was answering Charlamagne and said she was lying, which was not true."

Charlamagne Tha God accused African American social media users who made fun of Harris of "doing the work of Fox News."

"I want everybody to know they're doing the work of Fox News," he said. "The black Twitter people you see that are going in on Kamala because of this, y'all are doing the work of Fox News. Fox News got y'all. They got y'all."
