SNOOP DOG SHOOTING PRESIDENT TRUMP CLOWN
PRESIDENT TRUMP Tweets on SNOOP DOG :
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 !
SEE The VIDEO Clip
President Donald Trump used his Twitter account on Wednesday to sound off on Snoop Dogg days after the release of a satirical music video in which the rapper points a toy gun at a clown dressed like Mr Trump and pulls the trigger.
Mr Trump voiced his anger over the video on Wednesday morning, accusing the rapper of having a “failing career” and saying he would have been jailed for doing the same thing to President Barack Obama.

MOCK PRESIDENT TRUMP in SNOOP DOGG Video
The video is for a remixed version of the song Lavender, by Canadian group BADBADNOTGOOD featuring Snoop Dogg.
The cartoonish, satirical video was inspired by the death of Philando Castile, an unarmed victim of a “traffic stop” gone wrong and, as some argue, an incident of racially-fuelled police violence.
The video depicts a police officer shooting a man in a car during a traffic stop, which is caught on camera by a bystander, in which all characters are dressed as clowns. Later, mock news footage shows the Trump-like clown – named as ‘President Ronald Klump’ – speaking about deportations.
Close to the end of the video, the rapper points a toy gun at the President Klump clown and pulls the trigger, causing the gun to release a flag with the word “bang.” The clown flinches, and is later seen alive with the rapper at the end of the clip as his prisoner.
Mr Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, told TMZ Live earlier this week that the scene is “totally disgraceful”.
“Snoop owes the president an apology,” he said.
“There’s absolutely nothing funny about an assassination attempt on a president, and I’m really shocked at him because I thought he was better than that.”
Mr Trump has long advocated for increased police presence and harsher patrol, a strategy Black Lives Matter and some anti-police brutality groups say will only bring more harm.
“I’m not really sure I understand the artistic value to having somebody dress up as Trump and firing a weapon at him,” Mr Cohen added.
“I certainly would not have accepted it if it was President Obama. I certainly don’t accept it as President Trump, and in all fairness, it’s not funny, it’s not artistic.”
“Shame on you, Snoop,” concluded Mr Cohen. “You should be better than that, that’s for sure.”
