The new Snoop Dogg’s video shows the famous singer shooting at Donald Trump. The whole nation is represented with clown faces in the video, from kids to highly “important” people in the country. The video ends with a group of men capturing the president together with Snoop who is at the helm of the whole project, as what it seems. His shooting at Trump is interpreted as the final act of his frustration towards him. Apart from shooting the president, there are some other things related to the State itself that are represented as gruesome. For instance, we have police officers portrayed as executing machines as well.
At one point in the video we see a news conference with a headline that goes:
“Ronald Klump wants to deport all doggs,” live from ‘The Clown House.’
Obama did not go silent on this, however. He posted on Twitter some angry thoughts on how Snoop Dogg would be going to jail had he shot at Obama for instance.
Michael Cohen, Trump’s lawyer, stated:
“There’s absolutely nothing funny about an assassination attempt on a President. I’m really shocked; I thought he was better than that. I’m not really sure I understand the artistic value of having someone dress up as Trump and firing a weapon at him.”
He also added:
“There’s so much more that Snoop can do for his country, than this sort of ridiculous video.”
Snoop Dogg is not the only rapper who shows publically that he doesn’t support Trump. Eminem also declares himself as:
“I’m anti/Can’t no government handle a commando … I’ll make his whole brand go under.”
Florida Senator Marco Rubio also expressed his opinion on the matter. He said:
“Snoop shouldn’t have done that, we’ve had presidents assassinated before in this country, so anything like that is something people should be really careful about.”
In his opinion:
If the “wrong person sees that and gets the wrong idea, you could have a real problem.”
