If you've seen the previews or commercials for the upcoming movie American Gangster, you are familiar with the real-life story of Frank Lucas, an African-American man who rose above the Italian mafia to create, in the words of one prosecutor, "one of the most outrageous international dope-smuggling gangs ever."
Turns out he's supporting Rudy Giuliani for president.
No kidding. In the video below, Lucas talks via speakerphone with Leroy "Nicky" Barnes, another legendary drug dealer who was considered, at one point, one of the most successful heroin dealers in the country. Barnes also likes Giuliani.
But they both echo conventional wisdom: no matter who they like, they are resigned to the fact that Hillary Clinton will be the next president. It's hard out there for a pimp.
