This guy Snoop Dogg would have been picked up in a New York minute if it had been Obama that was depicted as being shot. Here we have President Trump who is trying to help the whole country, especially the Blacks and Hispanics, and you have this person called Snoop Dogg who doesn’t even have enough brains to recognize the difference. Why is that? Or better still, why isn’t he pouring back some of his riches back into the black communities to help his own people? Mad dog Snoop! Need to make an example of Dogg!
He’s ridin’ a gravy train on biscuit wheels.
U.S. Code › Title 18 › Part I
WASHINGTON (AP) — Florida Sen. Marco Rubio says Snoop Dogg shouldn’t have shot a toy gun at a clown dressed as President Donald Trump in a music video released over the weekend.
The video shows Snoop shooting at the Trump character with a gun that releases a flag with the word, “bang.”
Rubio tells TMZ that “Snoop shouldn’t have done that.” He says “we’ve had presidents assassinated before in this country, so anything like that is something people should really careful about.” He adds that if the “wrong person sees that and gets the wrong idea, you could have a real problem.”
Rubio lost to Trump in the Republican primary campaign.
The video is for a remixed version of the song “Lavender,” by Canadian group BADBADNOTGOOD featuring Snoop Dogg and Kaytranada.
