The President of the United States Is Twitter Beefing with Snoop Dogg Over a Music Video

Twitter is calling out President Donald Trump’s hypocritical response to Snoop Dogg’s “Lavender” music video, which mocks the leader of the free world.

In the visual where all humans are depicted as clowns, Snoop arrives at the end pointing what is revealed to be a toy gun at “Ronald Klump,” the faux Trump character.

Early Wednesday, March 15, Trump tweeted about the fallout that would occur if President Barack Obama was the subject of Canadian group BadBadNotGood and DJ Kaytranada’s remix video.

Trump’s message followed his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, also taking down the video on TMZ live Tuesday, March 14.

“It’s totally disgraceful. Snoop owes the president an apology,” said Cohen. “There’s absolutely nothing funny about an assassination attempt on a president … Maybe there are other things he can do to help the inner cities get past the violence, the drugs, and the killings going on instead of showing more killings.”

Sen. Marco Rubio also dissed the video, telling TMZ Tuesday that assassinations are “really something we should be careful about.” Meanwhile, Ice-T and Naughty by Nature’s Treach called Snoop’s effort “artistic” Monday, March 13.

Twitter didn’t stand for anyone’s criticisms. Users immediately provided evidence for the president’s advocacy of violence.

Some pointed out the threats on former President Obama’s life during his tenure.

Others brought attention to the fact that the president of the United States was feuding with Snoop, who told Billboard he released the video because he feels “like it’s something that’s missing.”

“Nobody’s dealing with the real issue with this f—— clown as president,” he said in a recent interview. “And the s— that we dealing with out here, so I wanted to take time out to push pause on a party record and make one of these records for the time being.”
