US President Donald Trump weighed in on the controversial new music video showing the rapper Snoop Dogg aiming a gun at a clown that depicts Donald Trump . . .
President Trump’s response comes just days after the release of the music video for the remix of “Lavender,” a song by the artist BADBADNOTGOOD and Kaytranada that features Snoop Dogg.

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!
After his Trump-clown shooting video which went viral, Snoop Dogg told Billboard that he wasn’t looking to provoke a reaction with the video. Snoop said:
“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,” he said. “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.”
Ironically, during the 2016 US presidential campaign, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump himself faced a backlash for suggesting gun enthusiasts may be able to stop DEM presidential candidate Hillary Clinton from taking away their Second Amendment rights.
What goes around (as the saying goes) comes around.
