Trump Blasts Snoop Dogg After New Video Shows Him Pointing Gun at President's Head
There is so much drama in ol' D.C., it's kinda hard bein' Snoop D-O-Double G.
Donald Trump took to Twitter Wednesday morning to fire back at rapper Snoop Dogg after the rapper released a new video with him pulling a gun on a lookalike of the real estate tycoon donning clown makeup.
The president lashed out in the early morning tweetstorm to say: “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!”

In the California hip-hop titan’s new video for "Lavender," the rapper pulls a gun on the Trump lookalike. When the rapper pulls the trigger, a flag comes out of the gun that reads “BANG!”
After the video came out, Marco Rubio also blasted Snoop Dogg when asked about the clip by TMZ.
"Snoop shouldn't have done that... You know, we've had presidents assassinated before in this country, so anything like that is really something that you should be very careful about," Rubio said. "I think people can disagree ... [but] you've got to be very careful about that kind of thing, because the wrong person sees that and gets the wrong idea, you can have a real problem. So I'm not sure what Snoop was thinking, he should think about that a little bit."
Snoop Dogg has not yet commented on Trump’s tweet.
The rapper did appear in a 2007 episode of The Apprentice: Los Angeles, in which Trump was the host.
