It's Tommy Chong's 78th birthday. However, yesterday, the stoner comedy legend received a blowoff from the Bernie Sanders campaign. First he was invited to introduce the senator at a Los Angeles area speech, then the invite was surprising rescinded.
But now he's not so sure about the Democratic presidential candidate.
"It's lip service to get the votes, but they don't want to endorse what I stand for and what I've stood for all my professional career," Chong tells the Hollywood Reporter. "It was an insult."
In addition he tweeted:
Today @BernieSanders invited me to speak at his rally and introduce him in Los Angeles.— Tommy Chong (@tommychong) May 23, 2016
Unfortunately after months of support and endorsement videos, I have to report that @BernieSanders pulled away his invite to me.— Tommy Chong (@tommychong) May 23, 2016
