A Trump voter, a Clinton voter, and a Stein voter walk up to a bong… Nope, it’s not a joke.
Cut, the people behind “Grandmas Smoking Weed for the First Time,” now bring you this bizarro alternate reality where three people with differing political views sit down to smoke together.
Matt, on the far left, is Team Jill Stein. Lauren voted for Hillary Clinton, and Ryan, on right, voted Donald Trump. Lauren teaches Ryan how to smoke out of a bong for the first time. “I very much like marijuana, because it very much helps my anxiety,” she says. “Which is perfect for this situation.”
As five, 10, and 30 minutes go by, the trio attempts to put into words their political reasonings. “I don’t know where I was going with that, but I like what I just put down,” Ryan says after trying to defend his vote.
They then play a game called “Common Ground,” and are handed Facebook-style thumbs up and down and posed with generic topics. From oral sex, Game of Thrones, Beyonce and the show Supernatural, somehow they all managed to disagree — until they reached Zac Efron. Three thumbs up. From there, things got a little easier, or they were just getting higher: The Electoral College got all thumbs down, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson got all thumbs up, as did Bernie Sanders.
Their final takeaway from all of this, besides a really solid high and some snacks: “Quit casting the other person as the villain,” Matt says. Talk to each other, and bring a bong.
