The Trump campaign is reportedly leaving a vice presidential debate ticket for Tupac Shakur as a jab at Democratic candidate Kamala Harris, who recently called the hip-hop icon, who was killed in 1996, the “best rapper alive.”
A Trump campaign adviser shared the news on a press call, according to multiple reports.
“I asked the Trump campaign who Vice President Mike Pence is bringing to tonight’s debate,” CBS News reporter Nicole Sganga tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “A spokesperson responded: ‘Tupac.’”
The Spectator magazine identified that spokesperson as Jason Miller, a senior campaign adviser.
Harris made the gaffe during the NAACP’s virtual convention last month, after CNN commentator Angela Rye asked, “Best rapper alive?”
The Democratic vice presidential candidate said Tupac – then corrected herself. “I keep doing that,” Harris said.
“West Coast girls think Tupac lives on,” Rye joked.
