Like a Facebook comment section come to life, President Donald Trump expressed some serious problems with a recent music video featuring Snoop Dogg.
The rapper made headlines this week after his appearance in the video for “Lavender” by Canadian group BADBADNOTGOOD went viral. In the video, Snoop fires a gun at a clown dressed as President Trump. Instead of a bullet, a cartoon flag with the word “BANG” on it is released from the gun.
On Wednesday morning, Trump commented on Snoop’s video and echoed the feelings of many of his supporters.
“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!” Trump wrote.
Earlier in the week, almost that exact same question was posed to Snoop Dogg’s friend and contemporary, Ice-T.
“It’s Trump season right now,” Ice-T said in response. “They’re going to make every kind of joke.”
Though they have taken shots at one another in the press, things weren’t always so contemptuous between Trump and Snoop. At the 2011 Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump, Snoop was among the people who appeared to tease Trump.
“Donald say he want’s to run for president and run for the White House,” Snoop said in 2011. “Why not? It wouldn’t be the first time he pushed a black family out of his home. From one pimp to another, much respect.”
