President Trump Slams 'Failing' Snoop Dogg Over 'Lavender' Video

Just hours after the release of information about his 2005 tax returns, President Donald Trump was up very early Wednesday morning (March 15) taking shots at "failing" Snoop Dogg over the rapper's Trump-mocking "Lavender" video. "Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired a gun at President Obama? Jail time!"
"It's totally disgraceful. Snoop owes the president an apology," said Cohen. "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. I'm not really sure I understand the artistic value to having somebody dress up as Trump and firing a weapon at him." 

And, in a preview of Trump's before sunrise tweet, 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." While Sen. Marco Rubio also slammed the politically charged clip, fellow rappers Ice-T and Naughty By Nature's Treach gave Snoop support for speaking out.

"[And] it was a confetti gun," Treach told TMZ. "Anybody got shot, confetti came out. It was artistic." 

He later added, "I don't think it was threatening neither," using Saturday Night Live skits as an example using similar comedy. The video, directed by YouTube star Jesse Wellens, finds Snoop Dogg aiming a toy gun at a clown parody of President Donald Trump. It also tackles police brutality, as a young black man is seen filming a clown cop shoot a clown man, played by Michael Rapaport, in his car, and confetti emerges once the trigger is pulled.
