Video After The Jump
Donald Trump is upset that Snoop Dogg depicted his assassination in the music video for his "Lavender" remix.
The president vented via his Twitter account on Wednesday, March 15, that Snoop is benefiting from a double standard. Trump argued that the rapper would be in huge trouble if acted out a mock assassination of former president Barack Obama.
"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!" Trump wrote.
As we previously reported, Snoop said the idea to mock assassinate Trump was his attempt to wake up other artists.
"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*cking clown as president, and the sh*t that we dealing with out here," he explained. "So I wanted to take time out to push pause on a party record and make one of these records for the time being."
