Donald Trump has responded to Snoop Dogg's 'Lavender' video. If you haven't seen it yet, the rapper points a gun and fake shoots a man dressed up like Trump in the head.
Since the video was released, people like Ice-T, Naughty by Nature's Treach and Senator Marco Rubio weighed in. In fact, Rubio blasted Snoop's video and Trump did the same.
In a tweet, the President said the rapper's career wasn't flourishing anymore, and if he would've made a video about Barack Obama being shot, the backlash would've been more severe.
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 15, 2017
Meanwhile, Trump's lawyer said he wants Snoop to issue a public apology.
"It's totally disgraceful," said Michael Cohen. "There's absolutely nothing funny about an assassination attempt on the President ... I'm not really sure I understand the artistic value having someone dressed up as Trump and firing a weapon at him."Snoop has yet to comment about all of this, but he probably will soon.
Twitter has obviously weighed in:
45 is upset over Snoop Dogg's video? Remember he suggested "2nd Amendment people" gun down HRC during NC rally in August? Cry me a river.— Sharon Gibson (@SharonGibson3) March 15, 2017

Trump claim that @SnoopDogg's career is "failing" is funny cause Snoop's approval ratin' is way higher than 39%.— Tea Pain (@TeaPainUSA) March 15, 2017
It doesn't matter if you support Trump or not, Snoop Dogg making a video depicting our Presidents assassination is completely reprehensible.— Irma (@latinaafortrump) March 15, 2017
Trump: "I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn't lose any voters." But Snoop Dogg... pic.twitter.com/uEPwL9dxYK— Keith Boykin (@keithboykin) March 15, 2017
