Huh? Bob Beckel admits he has ‘done dope in the White House’ during Fox News segment

Rapper Snoop Dogg made headlines earlier this week when he told Jimmy Kimmel he smoked marijuana in a White House restroom in December 2013. Not to be out done, liberal Fox News commentator Bob Beckel claimed he too has lit up in the White House.

“I can’t criticize [Snoop Dogg] because I’ve done dope in the White House myself,” Beckel said in front of his gob smacked cohosts on The Five. He then added he had already discussed the topic in his book.

Watch the segment below:

On radio this morning, Stu downloaded a copy of Beckel’s book, Common Ground: How to Stop the Partisan War That Is Destroying America, which was co-written with Cal Thomas. While Stu was unable to corroborate Beckel’s claims, the guys did prove their drug knowledge is limited.

    Well, that certainly explains a lot regarding Beckel.

    • libertarian1234

      Yes, it does. He needs something to help him limp along every day.

      He always seemed a bit out of step and lagging behind to me, but I couldn’t put my finger on it. I guess I assumed he was just the usual mentally disturbed extreme leftist.

      But it’s clear now why he has a skewed view of things. It’s because his mental equipment has been tweaked by a substance that causes a distortion in the process of logic.

      It also makes the average person paranoid, which is worse during a smoking session, but it carries over a bit when the subject isn’t directly under the influence.

        it’s on the shelf behind Hillary’s “book”… jking I wasn’t aware he could master a pen either.

    Only the dull-witted among us don’t know about prescription and non-prescription drug usage by the Washington elite and their presstitute friends, like Bob.

    Furthermore, the CIA runs drugs. Big banks launder CIA drug money. And places like Afghanistan are converted into one big drug garden by Washington.

    What’s so tragically funny is how Glenn’s listeners seem to be absolutely clueless.

    Be honest with us, Glenn, Pat and Stu, and tells us what drugs you’re on?

    What did Obama do with the smoke the White House requested a few months back. He is giving it to his friends and smoking it.You have some kind of President because he is not my President. Impeach him now .

  • Jenny Rodriguez

    The smell of smoking dope is really strong, and the WH is full of security, therefore it must be common place and acceptable behavior otherwise he would have been caught. Also, for all those that work in the WH and watch illegal actives occur and do nothing, should also be held responsible.

      Let’s face it, Beckel is a self-admitted alcoholic and druggie. I think the guy is a pig, and he makes it impossible for me to watch “The Five.”

      As for drugs in the White House, it goes back at least to the days of JFK, for heaven’s sake. And you don’t think Billy Bob Clinton and his crew toked and snorted their way through the 90’s there?

      • Dena

        That current? I am willing to bet that FDR was using alcohol while it was still illegal to do so. Because “Medical Alcohol” was still available, I suspect the white house had a large stock of it on hand.

  • Guest

    This is the same guy who dropped a f-bomb on live tv- then refused to admit he’d done something wrong.

    This man is a performer who does things simply for shock effect. I don’t believe Beckel has any credibility… So isn’t this a no story? Isn’t he the man who intentionally gets set up as a straw man to make conservatives feel better about themselves?

    My question is why this man is still on the air. He feeds the left and conservatives who don’t think for themselves the hateful and downright stupid things he says. If you’d like to find where the illiterate, rich, racist conservative stereotype comes from, I say you start looking with him.

    • Dan

      Maybe it’s just my stupid infantrymans brain… but how would a fat, stupid, and hateful liberal contribute to a negative stereotype of conservatives?

  • Aaron

    that’s badass…the beatles smoked in the bathroom at buckingham before their knighting, just an FYI for the older generation that dislikes snoop. BUT this does illustrate how celebrities/famous people are clearly treated differently than the rest of us. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be able to get away with smoking out the bathroom at the white house lol.

      if you’re a leftist it’s about as badass as stealing an extra packet of hot sauce at Taco Bell.

      • Phillip Blair

        First off, you can’t “steal” an extra packet of hot sauce from Taco Bell. If you’ve made a purchase, you can technically have as many as you want. Second, smoking pot is not a “leftist” thing as so many seem to believe. Some of my biggest pot head friends are republicans, and would rather cut their own throats than vote for a democrat. Doesn’t stop them from toking up after a long day.

    I’m guessing by the look of his enormous belly he did a lot of eating on the taxpayer dime while at the WH as well. Probably had to fight Mooch for the last french fry.

    In my book is a detailed account describing an incident where I caught Obama masturbating to a picture of a semi-nude, yet tasteful, photograph of Ruth Based Ginsberg in the oval office! I said, “Have you no shame Barry?” He just asked me to be quiet for 2-3 minutes.

  • In_the_OC

    There is a great deal of wisdom in the admonition of avoiding even the appearance of evil. Having Bobby Bechel announce he did drugs at the White House may not be new to Obama or the administration OR its “guests”, as Bechel evidently was (“Mr. Syncophant”), but shooting one’s mouth off about it (why would you do that?) shows a lack of propriety where propriety is clearly lacking all across the board, and therefore in great need of same. Seems almost wherever we go today, something is “off”, or cheapened in order to be “cool.” That extends to Bob Bechel and his inappreciation for discretion.

    Beckel is a typical democrat drug smoking , alcoholic, and agitator that does nothing but live off the tax payers .

    • Loangirl


    • Lee in Phoenix

      I agree with the first 3, but don’t think he lives off the taxpayers. He makes a lot more money than most of us. Why I can’t say, because if you watch the show much it is apparent that he cannot remember simple facts from day to day and doesn’t seem very intelligent at all. If he’s like this now, I can only imagine what he was like when he worked for the government and, by his own admission, was drunk and stoned most of the time.

  • Sean Sellars

    I’ve always assumed that drugs are heavily flowing in EVERY Democrat administration. Clinton–of course. Obama–of course. I can’t imagine dope NOT happening in there. It’s a bunch of spoiled, arrogant, narcissistic brats who “work” there and this is normal to them. But I honestly can not imagine this happening in a George Bush or Mitt Romney or Ronald Reagan White House—no way. Call me crazy, I don’t care—but I think I am spot-on correct.

    • Phillip Blair

      Never mind the well known fact that Dubya’s an alcoholic and cokehead! Never let the facts tarnish your memories of the great divider! How about all those Hollywood parties Regan hosted? The man was an actor for God’s sake! Your really telling us you won’t believe he did coke, or drank alcohol? Cocaine was EVERYWHERE in the 80’s! It was the rich man’s drug of choice! OF COURSE Regan did it! How’s the world look through those rose colored glasses?

  • iconicles

    I’m not even entirely sure why, but it drives me a little nuts when people refer to marijuana as “dope.” No one who knows much calls it that. It’s commonly known as weed, pot, grass, smoke, ganja, herb, bud, and/or a few other things. Crystal meth is called dope. Get it right.

    I believe that Beckel misspoke. He meant he was “a” Smoking Dope in the WH. At least its more believable said this way…

    Bob and Snoop are like the weird Uncles (or guests you feel sorry about, hence you invited them) around the Christmas or Thanksgiving table (include Uncle Joe B.) that everyone, no matter how polite they are, secretly want to spit on the spoon and pass the last servings of nasty green bean casserole. Basically, they are as gross, all of them, as the casserole you have to pretend to like and eat. Nasty!

    This is nothing new. Both JFK and Jackie did speed in the WH, at least Beckel was honest and admitted what he had done. People to this day refuse to admit what went on during “Camelot”.

    beckel should go get a job with the lazy doper leaches over at tmz! they just sit around stoned asking celebrities stupid questions getting rich for doing nothing.


    That’s no different than drinking a beer in the White House. SMH.

  • Mike Bolender

    How many times do I have to hear Beckel glorify drug use? That comment, along with many others he’s made and continues to make, is self serving and isn’t poignant to sobriety.
