Bizarrely, In Defense Of Snoop Dogg
Well, it looks like what we’ve long suspected is true – the President’s sympathies lay with the Bloods. What else is a responsible journalist to conclude after Donald Trump took time from the ostensibly busy job of running the country to respond to an appearance by Snoop Dogg in a music video?
The song is a remix of BADBADNOTGOOD’s song “Lavender, ” and while the lyrical content has drawn no ire, the video prompted backlash from the President and other prominent Republicans. Their point of contention: a moment in the footage where Snoop levels a toy gun at President “Ronald Klump” and pulls the trigger, followed by a “BANG” flag erupting from the barrel.
Apparently, this crossed a line.
The President responded via Tweet, “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!” He was not alone in his condemnation; Senator Marco Rubio told TMZ, “Snoop shouldn’t have done that, we’ve had presidents assassinated before in this country, so anything like that is something people should be really careful about.” He added that if the “wrong person sees that and gets the wrong idea, you could have a real problem.”
Could this be more idiotic if all parties involved were trying to make it so?
Have either Trump or Rubio even watched the video? I seriously doubt it. If they had, they might have noticed that it deals with a bureaucracy and police force of clowns, lead by head clown ‘Ronald Klump’ who wants to ‘deport all doggs,' thus persecuting Snoop and his crew. When Snoop deals with this persecution by firing the gun (which, I must reiterate, shot a flag, not a bullet) the orange-faced clown President does not die, he is shown in the next frame wrapped in chains while a reformed ‘Clown’ and Snoop pass a joint back and forth without including him. The whole video ends with a cartoon of a dog gunning down clowns, later revealed to be an advertisement for “Snoop Loops.”
