VIDEO: Phelps Swims Around Pot Question During Today Show Interview

Michael Phelps

Michael Phelps tread carefully around Matt Lauer asking point-blank asking if he smoked marijuana at a South Carolina party where he was photographed holding a bong.

"It was a bad mistake. I mean, we all know what, you know, what you and I are talking about. It's a stupid mistake. You know, bad judgment. And it's something that, you know, I have to, and I want to teach other people not to make that mistake," Phelps said during the Today show Friday.

Lauer was quick to roll tape of a similar apology Phelps made on Today in 2004 after the DUI incident.

"I'll be the first one to admit I've made a lot of mistakes in my life in the pool and out of the pool," Phelps said. "But I have never made the same mistake again. I never made the same mistake twice."

They are, after all, two totally different things.

"He never said, 'I smoked marijuana.' He never confessed that," Lott said.

Phelps said he is now focused on getting back in the water... read more
