Snoop Dogg's new video, which shows him pointing a fake gun and shooting a clown version of Donald Trump, has gotten the attention of the real version of Donald Trump.
The President tweeted this morning (Wednesday), "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!" The video has received mixed reactions from a wide range of celebs, from fellow rappers to politicians.
Ice-T believes the video is "artistic" and would indeed be more serious if the president being shot was Barack Obama because "Obama wasn't the same kind of guy as Trump," and "Trump brings a lot of these jokes on himself" and "he acts like a clown."
Senator Marco Rubio fears the video could inspire violence against the President. He tells People magazine, "I think people can disagree on policy, but you’ve got to be very careful about that kind of thing because the wrong person sees that and gets the wrong idea you could have a real problem." Senator Ted Cruz agrees and says it was "in poor taste" and adds, "I think anyone reasonable and responsible should disagree with the video. We should not be advocating the murder of the President of the United States."
