Rapper Snoop Dogg released a violent music video where he ties up and shoots a clownish Donald Trump impersonator.
The APPALLING video grabbed the attention of Trump who sent out a tweet saying, "Can you imagine what the outcry would be if Snoop Dogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time."
During a TMZ interview, Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen said the video is "absolutely disgraceful" and "Snoop owes the president an apology. There's nothing funny about an assassination attempt on a president."
The video was released for Snoop's remixed version of the song "Lavender," by Canadian group BADBADNOTGOOD. Snoop Dogg raps about police brutality in a world run by clowns which highlights the kidnapping of the insulting Trump character.
"This is the final call," Snoops says then points a gun at the clown dressed as the President. He pulls the trigger and a flag that says "bang" shoots out from the toy gun.
Snoop and the music community are arguing that the video is an artistic expression of the modern world. Art and free speech aside, there is a certain amount of respect that should always be given to the Oval Office. Hollywood can rally and chant all they want about policies, but Cohen is right, legitimate threats on the President's life are NO JOKE.
He continued that "Maybe there are other things he [Snoop] can do to help the inner cities get past the violence, the drugs, and the killings going on instead of showing more killings."
Unfortunately, instead of focusing on the violent video the world seems to be more caught up on Trump's tweet that suggested Snoop is washed up. Even liberals should be able to see the significance of this video. The attacks on Donald Trump have GONE TOO FAR.
Shockingly, Trump's former competition Marco Rubio has also come out and defended the President saying that Snoop should "be careful" about what he puts out there. See Rubio's comments in the video below.
