About this Episode

The star of Grey's Anatomy, Ellen Pompeo, did what many Americans do: she voiced her thoughts about the Democratic Debate on Twitter. But it wasn't laudatory of presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris. So, Twitter called her a racist.

Tony Katz hosts the Snack Size edition of Eat! Drink! Smoke! presented by Now, so we're clear, nothing that Pompeo said was racist. Not a single word. Pompeo simply thought that Harris' strategy of going after former VP Joe Biden was problematic....specifically, she called the strategy a case of Harris being "overconfident."

Pompeo's tweet wasn't racist, and Pompeo's analysis wasn't accurate. Eat! Drink! Smoke! is recorded live at Blend Bar Cigar in Indianapolis, IN.
