A few popular politicians have been asked of their reactions to Snoop Dogg’s latest music video, which includes a Snoop Dogg pulling a gun on a clown bearing a resemblance to President Trump.
TMZ got Marco Rubio’s condemning opinion on the video first. “We’ve had presidents assassinated before in this country,” Rubio told TMZ, “so anything like that is really something we should be very careful about. The wrong person sees that and gets the wrong idea, you can have a real problem.”
Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen told TMZ that people should “respect the office of the presidency” and that he found the video “totally disgraceful.” “Snoop owes the president an apology. There’s absolutely nothing funny about an assassination attempt on a president.”
Ted Cruz, who had not seen the video when asked about it, commented that it’s “in poor taste to be making fun of murdering someone and in particular assassinating the president.”
President Trump also his concerns towards the video via Twitter. “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!”
