Secret Service Investigating Snoop Dog’s Anti-Trump “Assassination” Video
On Tuesday, a Secret Service representative told The Wrap that the feds have an eye on Snoop Dogg after the controversial video where he holds a gun to Trump’s head. Snoop’s video “Lavender” just hit the airwaves.
Currently, the Secret Service didn’t have any additional comments about their investigation but it’s likely they’re investigating the video and Snoop Dogg’s personal life, which he highly publicizes on social media.
Beyond the video, Snoop Dogg also made comments about President Donald Trump.
Marco Rubio On Snoop’s Message
In the music video “Lavender,” directors Jesse Wellens and James DeFina have created a version of America where everyone is a clown. The President in the video looks like Trump, with the name “Ronald Klump.”
After the clown president holds a press conference to hold a deportation of all dogs, rapper Snoop Dogg shows up to chain the Clown-in-Chief, where he also shoots him with a toy gun.
Senator and hip-hop fan Marco Rubio said Snoop Dogg should be “very careful” with such a violent depiction.
Trump’s Attorney Chimes In On Video
Marco Rubio told TMZ, “Snoop shouldn’t have done that. You know, we’ve had presidents assassinated before in this country, so anything like that is really something that you should be very careful about.”
Rubio added, “I think people can disagree, [but] you’ve got to be careful about that kind of thing because the wrong person sees that gets the wrong idea, you can have a real problem. Snoop…should think about that a little bit.”
In response, Donald Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen also said, “It’s totally disgraceful, Snoop owes the president an apology. There’s absolutely nothing funny about an assassination attempt on a president.”
The attorney also that the rapper should understand his artistic value better than he does and that the act wasn’t funny or artistic protest or not.
Do you agree that Snoop Dogg’s message went too far?
