President Trump is biting back at Snoop Dogg over the rapper’s politically charged new music video — the latest chapter in a rollercoaster saga between the billionaire and the hip-hop star.
Trump slammed the “Gin and Juice” artist for including a scene that shows Snoop pointing a fake gun at the head of a clown inspired by the President in his video for “Lavender” — and even suggested the rapper’s antics could be worthy of time behind bars.
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!

In the scene in question, Snoop fires off the weapon at the Trump-inspired clown’s head, only for a flag reading the word “bang” to pop out.
Snoop, 45, explained his reasoning for the polarizing scene in a recent interview with Billboard, telling the music outlet he wanted his video to address prominent social issues.
