US senator and presidential candidate Cory Booker appeared on BuzzFeed News' AM to DM Thursday morning to discuss his fight to legalize pot.

"Um, so, margarita, there's fruit, and there is ice, and there is...uh, vodka," he said.

"Oh noooo," replied host Hayes Brown.

"Tequila! I'm sorry!" he said.

Vodka, Booker, really?

"This is brutal. This might lose some votes from people in my family right now because they're embarrassed."

Margaritas are, of course, made with tequila, Cointreau, and lime juice.
