California Congressman Tells Conservative Parkland Student to Come to California to Get High

Far left Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) deleted an ill-advised tweet Sunday. In the tweet, the Congressman tells conservative Parkland student Kyle Kashuv he should come visit California so he can “experience our awesome #cannabis.”

As many people have experienced on Twitter, the internet never forgets. Kashuv grabbed a screenshot of the tweet before Lieu was able to delete it.

Lieu realized he had clearly made a fool of himself by inviting a high schooler to come to California and smoke weed. He reached back out to Kashuv and apologized.

Kashuv was able to turn the experience into a positive. While he admitted he is “scared at who this country elects” he still looks forward to getting the opportunity to serve one day “as a member of Congress.”
