Hillary Clinton told longtime New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd Saturday to lay off the pot brownies.
The jab came after a column from Dowd which stated that Biden and his yet to be announced female running mate would be the first Democratic male/female presidential ticket since Walter Mondale and Geraldine Ferraro in 1984.
The analysis apparently forgot Clinton’s run for the White House in 2016 with Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine.
“Either @TimKaine and I had a very vivid shared hallucination four years ago or Maureen had too much pot brownie before writing her column again,” Clinton tweeted Saturday.
The mistake was live for less than an hour before the Times issued a correction.
“An earlier version of this column incorrectly stated the history of the Democratic ticket. It has been 36 years since a man chose a woman to run as his vice-president on the Democratic ticket, not 36 years since a man and a woman ran together on a Democratic Party ticket,” the paper said.
Online lefties immediately pounced on the mistake, with Gray Lady editors on Twitter voicing their frustration at the flub. Leading the charge was Center for American Progress boss and close Clinton ally Neera Tanden.
“It’s truly embarrassing that their Hillary hatred operates to erase an historic event that happened just 4 years ago. Who is editing this?” she thundered. “The hatred of Hillary is so intense there it is blinding.”
