Snoop Dogg points a fake gun at a character dressed as a clown-President Donald Trump character and pulls the trigger in his new video. It’s the kind of toy gun that unfurls a little flag that says “BANG!” so the segment is pointed without being graphic. Earlier in the video, though, a police officer, also dressed as a clown, shoots a motorist after a traffic stop while a passerby films it on his cell phone.
“F*** the police,” Snoop raps.
The profanity ridden video directed by Jesse Wellens and James DeFina features a “Ronald Klump” as the head clown in chief, running a country of clowns.
The actual president hasn’t yet responded via Twitter, his favorite form of widespread communication, but his one-time rival, Sen. Marco Rubio, told TMZ, “Snoop shouldn’t have done that … You know, we’ve had presidents assassinated before in this country.”
Author and commentator Eric Schiffer, CEO of ReputationManagementConsultants.com, was more pointed in his assessment:
“This isn’t ‘art’” he said. “It’s a brainless, federal offense all because Snoop Dogg’s failing career is desperate. Snoop’s ‘clowning’ is playing with fire.”
