President Donald Trump responded on Wednesday to the mock assassination video produced by rapper Snoop Dogg.
The video was for his new single “Lavender” and it showed the California rapper shooting a clown made to look like the president.
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!

If one judges by fellow rapper Ice-T’s response the outrage would have been off the charts.
Ice-T told TMZ that if the same video was made about former President Obama it would have been “terrible” but it was okay to do it to President Trump.
And his reasons were as ridiculous as one might imagine.
The same cannot be said of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio who found the video to be dangerous.
