Kimberly Guilfoyle, a Fox News contributor, recently said that the Secret Service should pay rappers Snoop Dogg and Bow Wow a “visit” due to their controversial music video. In “Lavender,” Snoop Dogg mock-assassinated a clown who resembles Trump.
An uproar occurred among Republicans and politicians over the video, but Trump responded with a simple message: “Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDoog, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!”
Snoop’s protégé Bow Wow then sent out a message that read, “Ayo @realDonaldTrump shut you punk ass up talking sh*t about my uncle @SnoopDogg before we pimp your wife and make her work for us…”
On Fox News’ show, The Five, Guilfoyle decided enough was enough.

According to Independent, Guilfoyle said:
“In a Thursday segment of Fox News’ The Five, the show’s five hosts took turns attacking the rappers for their actions, until Guilfoyle was asked by her colleague Greg Gutfeld: “What should the Secret Service do?”
“Kill them?” Guilfoyle responded, to chuckling from her co-hosts.
“Kill them.” She continued, apparently failing to see the irony in her comments: “I think it would be fantastic if Snoop and wannabe-Snoop got a visit from, like, the federal marshals, and let’s see how tough and gangster they are then.
The Double Standard From Obama’s Administration

“Honestly this is horrible behavior… what a double standard, this would never fly, there would be outrage all over the place if somebody said this [about Michelle Obama].”
Obviously, Guilfoyle’s comments can be taken out of context and due to tensions between law enforcement agencies and the black community, this is likely what will happen, but she’s mainly commenting on the double-standard within the Obama Administration, which is what Trump said in his original message.
