WATCH: Here's why the President of the United States is tweeting about Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg aims a toy gun at a clown dressed as Republican President Donald Trump in a new music video featuring a population of clowns.
The video for a remix of "Lavender" by Toronto-based group BADBADNOTGOOD was posted Sunday. In it Snoop Dogg shoots at Trump a gun that releases the word "bang."
The music video also shows a TV airing a news conference with the headline "Ronald Klump wants to deport all doggs," airing live from "The Clown House." Most of the people in the video are dressed as clowns aside from Snoop Dogg.
Actor-comedian Michael Rapaport stars in the clip. He's pulled over and shot by a police officer, which is filmed by an onlooker.
Trump spoke out against Snoop's video actions Wednesday.
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
A day earlier, Senator Marco Rubio said Tuesday he thought taking aim at a Trump clown in the video was wrong.
"Snoop shouldn't have done that," Rubio told TMZ. "We've had presidents assassinated before in this country, so anything like that is something people should really careful about."
