The president responds to a new music video in which Snoop Dogg points a gun at the head of a Trump doppelgänger.
No one has a more severe case of Twitter fingers than Donald Trump. Wednesday morning, Trump logged on to Twitter to express his outrage at his latest political opponent: Snoop Dogg.
Snoop has drawn attention because of his new music video for “Lavender," a BADBADNOTGOOD/Kaytranada rework, in which he points a gun at the head of a Trump doppelgänger wearing clown makeup. Trump's response: to demean Snoop's "failed" career and make veiled threats about "jail time."
Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 15, 2017
Republican senator Marco Rubio criticized the video yesterday. “We’ve had presidents assassinated before in this country, so anything like that is really something we should be very careful about," he said.
Added Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen: “Snoop owes the president an apology.”
