BLOWING SMOKE: Kellyanne Conway and Mark Penn on Biden's weed pardon being 'timed for the election'

President Joe Biden's pardon on all prior simple marijuana offenses is "timed for the election," according to strategists who consider the new move to be a distraction tactic from the Democrats as the midterms started looking grim for the party.

Biden announced Thursday that he would be pardoning thousands of marijuana convictions. "No one should be in jail just for using or possessing marijuana," he stated in a clip shared to Twitter. "I think this is part of the electric car, student loan, marijuana strategy all timed for the election.

Don’t think it overcomes particularly the growing issue of crime and drug related crime in the country," said Mark Penn, a former advisor to President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton.

Kellyanne Conway, political strategist and Fox News contributor, agreed that the marijuana pardon is a diversion from the Biden administration to distract voters from the real issues they are concerned about, like rising prices and the border crisis.  "Whether it is student loan forgiveness or pardoning marijuana possession convictions, a bereft Biden tries hard to change the subject and get people who dislike him to dislike him a little bit less," Conway said. "This is less likely to motivate voters than it is to embarrass Vice President Kamala Harris.
