President Donald Trump goes an a bizarre Twitter rant suggesting that rapper Snoop Dogg should be sent to prison.
To say a lot of people don’t like Donald Trump is obvious, that’s like saying we as human’s require oxygen to breathe. A lot of people, particularly the liberal elite (i.e. celebrities) have had a lot to say about Trump and his new administration, this includes big Snoop D-O-double-G.
The Long Beach, California OG caught the (Twitter) wrath of Trump after he appeared to be assassinating a spoof version of the controversial president (decked in clown make-up) in a music video for the remix of Nightfall with BadBadNotGood and Kaytranda. Thing is he didn’t even assassinate him, he just faked him out.
Still that was enough to trigger Trump’s sensitive feelings, drawing vitriol from him and his supporters. The President (quite predictably) quickly took to Twitter to let his feelings known on the rapper’s actions.
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!

Similarly Florida Senator Marco Rubio, who Trump belittled and beat in the campaign for the Republican Primaries, criticised Snoop on TMZ.
He told the media network that he “shouldn’t have done that”, adding that:
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.
However Snoop, real name Calvin Broadus, told Billboard that he wasn’t looking for any kind of reaction.
He explained to the long running music publication:
“I just put it out because I feel like it’s something that’s missing… Any time I drop something, I’m trying to fill in a void. I feel like it’s a lot of people making cool records, having fun, partying, but nobody’s dealing with the real issue with this f***ing clown as President, and the sh*t 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.
Snoop Dogg’s latest album Cooldaid is out now on his self-owned label Doggystyle Records which you can listen to and buy here.
