"Jail Time!" Trump Slams Snoop Dogg Assassination Video, Mocks MSNBC's Tax Leak

Tyler Durden's picture

After a several day self-imposed silence, Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday morning, slamming both Snoop Dogg's recent controversial music clip and last night's MSNBC leak of his 2005 tax return.

Two days after rapper Snoop Dogg released a music video in which he shoots a "f--king clown" dressed as Trump with a toy gun, an angry Trump tweeted  "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!"

As reported before, in the video Snoop Dogg says “this is the final call,” before pointing a gun at the head of a cigarette-puffing clown dressed as Trump and pulling the trigger, at which point a “bang” flag shoots out from the music star's gun.

As the Wrap reported yesterday, a representative for the U.S. Secret Service said that the agency, which is responsible for the safety of President Trump, is “aware of” the video “Lavender,” which features Snoop Dogg shooting a clown-faced Trump stand-in with a toy gun. It is unclear whether the agency is investigating or planning to investigate the video, as the Secret Service spokesman said that the agency had no further public comment on the matter at this time.

Others criticized Snoop's "artistic" vision previously: “We’ve had presidents assassinated before in this country, so anything like that, people should really be careful about that kind of thing,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) told TMZ after news of the music video broke. "He should think about that a little bit. If the wrong person sees that and gets the wrong idea, you could have a real problem. I think people can disagree on policy, but we’ve got to be very careful about that kind of thing.”

Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, also registered his displeasure with the “Lavender” video, telling TMZ, “It’s totally disgraceful, Snoop owes the president an apology. There’s absolutely nothing funny about an assassination attempt on a president.”

“I’m really shocked at him, because I thought he was better than that. I’m not really sure I understand the artistic value to having somebody dressed up as Trump and firing a weapon at him,” Cohen continued. “In all fairness, it’s not funn

In a second tweet, in response to last night's highly anticlimatic MSNBC prime time event, in which Rachel Maddow publicized Trump's leaked 2005 tax return, and which showed the president making $150 million on which he padi a 25% tax rate, Trump lashed out asking "Does anybody really believe that a reporter, who nobody ever heard of, "went to his mailbox" and found my tax returns? @NBCNews  FAKE NEWS!"

Ironically, Maddow's reveal may have backfired, because as discussed last night it showed that not only Trump made more money in a period in which many speculated he was in financial dire straits, but also paid a generous tax rate higher than that of Barack Obama, Mitt Romney and even Bernie Sanders. As such, because it case the president's tax filings in a favorable light, many immediately suggested that it was Trump himself who delivered the tax return to MSNCB contributor David Cay Johnston.

Snoop dog, can't put him in jail. How else would they keep poisoning young people's minds with the Gansta BS arrested development brainwashing. Wana be tough guy that has never gotten his hands dirty from a hard days work. 


Got his hands dirty that day he blasted the other nigger at the park. Hence, murder was the case that they gave me. He beat it too.

I have never said anything bad about black people.

In fact, I had a beautiful black girlfriend for a while way back in the day.

But that kaffir needs to be taken down.

jus_lite_reading's picture

Snoop Dogg Shit is a piece of shit loser, fake ass nigga. He started off selling fucking dime bags on the street corner and tried to get into the pimp buiness but was laughed out. Then he gave some big name rapper his tape but he had no street cred so he made up a story about how he was a gangbanger Crip. LMFAO

So, when we will hear about some Jail Time for Bernie? That communist prick doing it like in old Stalin days. How lame you have to be to steal votes and still lose.

Since we are told that drinking milk is racist, I am terribly amused that Kafir in Russian is fermented milk and Kaffir is nigger in South African.

Considering the NDAA, I would not promote this video and I would remove all the SNOOP DOGS linkage (sorry record labels) because I would not want to be TIED to a domestic terrorist. I would put that on my websites as well. Look no farther than Rick Santilli (love em or hate em) for an example of such confusion in your face EXACTLY like I predicted.

I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do... http://bit.ly/2jdTzrM

Let me get this right. The negro celebrity has to have a negro body guard to protect him from other negros, correct  ?  Rather self defeating paradigms is it not ? The black identity thing has gone completely insane and is totally self destructive at this juncture with zero redeeming ideas from such sources as the gangsta meme. MLK would be horrified most likely and spit in his face. Can there be any doubt BHO and crew have ramped up all racial animus deliberately ? And what if a white person had done the same to Obama ? would they be in jail for a hate crime and their life destroyed instantly ? Fuck these maniacs no matter what color. Is this inciting violence like Lynch did recently ?

These ass holes need to be prosecuted for such or it will only get worse. The only good news is that they are showing the world what insanity is and who they really are for all to see in living color. They are destroying themselves by their own hand. I see no reason not to help them do that and charge them both with crimes. Why should either get a pass when you would not ?

I see we have at least two snowflakes fluttering around here on ZH this morning.

we have a ton of snowflakes on this site now...i think they are paid trolls.   He snowlflakes  send me a message and put in touch with how I can get paid to troll too!

Maybe it's my imagination but there doesn't seem to be nearly as many as there were a few years ago when a Traycoon Martin or gentle Mike Brown incident occurred and they would immediately swarm this site to justify all and any resulting cat 5 chimpouts.

crazzziecanuck's picture

Not to defend him, but what did we expect with non-stop anti-Trump hysterics?  It's very much like an escalation from 2009 when Obama was the some crazed Marxist out to destroy America.  Before that, it was GWB as "chimp boy."  Before him was Bill Clinton, the ultimate right-wing whipping boy even though he was one of them.  Before him was the man who would kill us all, Ronald Reagan.  One would think more people would have caught onto the pattern....

Stupidity continues on it's forward march into human extinction.  Doesn't miss a beat.

But Obama is a crazed marxist out to destroy America. 


Almost succeeded too, if it weren't for that gosh darn Trump

jeff montanye's picture

that tax return thing is a good one.  i think we're doing ok at the trivial level.  but here again some more substantial policy ideas (of course the t.a. may still be getting control of the military, the doj and the clandestine services, but food for thought nonetheless).

1.  medical and recreational marijuana in all states that want it.  yes i know that’s the way it “is” now (the meaning of is, is) but the trump administration needs to pick its curves to be in front of and this one reduces crime, dials the border a click or two closer to peace, adds to state coffers and provides jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities in the taxed world.  err on the side of no possession arrest.  it is growing in political popularity.  


really put some ingenuity into finding the dea attractive, alternative opportunities where they actually could do some good.



2.  medicare and those related insurance ppo’s for everyone.  medicare (as well as insurance ppo) negotiated drug and healthcare prices like canada.  no denial of care based on pre existing conditions (is, is).  stop trying to maintain the obama payoffs for the drug and health companies.


repeal of obamacare as we have come to know it.  http://www.visualcapitalist.com/u-s-healthcare-system-global-outlier-not...



3.  make a trade and aid deal with russia, however the master of the deal thinks best, but just trade and aid, no military or political negotiations as they are trouble and slow things down (russia will never give up crimea), and then lift the damn russian sanctions.  


sanctions are an act of war and the u.s. has led, not just to war crimes but to the banality of war itself.  war should be special.  it should mean something.   it should be a last resort.


in general trade and aid not loan or drone. 



4.  follow the lead of israel’s president and negotiate with the israelis and the palestinians toward a one state solution.  full israeli citizenship with full voting rights for every adult in the occupied territories (and gaza) which are then israel proper.  the palestinian leaders will oppose this as they want the job.  they will never get it 'til elected to the knesset.  trust me on this.  the two state solution is both a non starter with israel and a recipe for war.  one state is the answer.  


how much better would the average person in the occupied territories be as a citizen of israel?  the poorest people?  with maybe superior conscientious objector status as part of the reparations for past abuse and to avoid endless bickering over service in the idf.  likely more palestinians will want to be in the military with its marvelous benefits than the israelis will want.  


tear down that wall mr. netanyahu. 



5.  at the margin, on the absolute cheap, encourage wind and photovoltaic power.  not by further impeding fossil fuel but since the former are economically competitive with coal, https://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=wind+and+solar+are+..., it makes sense to get in front of another benign curve that melts snowflakes and actually pleases most of trump’s supporters.  wind and solar offer revenue and job opportunities to property owners and workers.  


the utility companies’ establishment is an impediment.  trump didn’t get their campaign contributions.  again, why should he protect them over the common person?  do elections have consequences?  at the margin and on the cheap, fund research on increasing the efficiency of long distance electricity transmission, batteries, wildlife protection, etc.  the real future is covering all buildings in photovoltaic shingles, paint whatever and storing the excess in batteries, broadly defined, for transportation and the night.



6.  convene grand juries under someone of the stature, skills and experience of william k. black (if available, negotiate as needed) to investigate, indict, prosecute and convict the banksters guilty of running the greatest control fraud in history.  no more too big to jail.  giving in to their threats to crash the economy is worse than negotiating with terrorists, yet strangely like it.  


this is also a relatively popular idea on both sides of the aisle at the common person level, the ones who supposedly elected president trump.  and will elect the next congress.



these ideas are strongly revenue, vote and snowflake melting positive and cost, hatred and armageddon negative.

He thought he would never be audited.

I stay away of those red flag deductions because I have no juice with the IRS.

And how much did Trump pay additionally in state tax?

Lets find out then compare it to your tax rate as a barista.

Make Bernie Pay!

Same here.

I work from home and never take the home office deduction.

Not worth the headache that an audit would cause.

They would not find me cheating because I don't,  but I sure as hell don't want to spend hours of my time going through my taxes again. It is always a major pain in the ass the first time.

home office deduction is no longer a red flag. Take the standard deduction per square ft and done.

How do you know that? Turbo tax as of last year was saying it was a flag. My husband does not take the deduction for that reason, and he really, really, should.

My hotshot tax attorney told me. Turbotax is in bed with Deep State so I wouldn't take advice from them.

Why not applaud?  Fucking might as well suggest taxing every platypus in this country, for all the people it affects...  And I'd like to thank Ms. Clinton's esteemed husband as well as Warren Buffet for helping hurry the trend of turning America's middle class into something so rare and unusual.

No one-state solution because the Palestinians will outbreed the Jews.  Make a deal with Jordan to take them, maybe a massive modernization as a gift.  Jordan has plenty of space, put them there and build them a nice gleaming modern city.

They won't maintain it but then it's not our problem.  Meanwhile we've solved the Israel problem.  Palestinians gone.

moonshadow's picture

Exactly! Jeffie Montanye said "trust me on this". LOL!! Yeah..."put this gold 6-sided star on your clothes-it'll help us all...trust me on this". The stated goal of the so-called 'palestinians' of today(they stole that name which had previously meant anyone living in Palestine) is the annihilation of Israel. "trust me on this" jeff?? asshat

keep the bastards honest's picture

Palestine and Israel all of it belongs to the Palestinians by right.   'jews' are there becaise of the Balfour Agreement 1917 between english govt and rothchild, a payment towards war costs?

The 'jews'  is a name conjured up by Rothcild in  the 1700's, and the jews dont have the  israelite genes of the biblicals... the Palestinians have those.  

"they wont maintain it"  ??? what are you artichoke... a  khazarian with inbreeding and terrible genetics.??? that is why Palestinians would 'breed' well, if they had food and shelter, they are genetically healthy.

Gohigher's picture


I miss the older style, or reasoned (or rabid) discourse on ZH. The one-line epithet trolls have spawned out of the woodwork over the last 18 months and diluted the brain pool, IMO. I liked this post greatly, especially knowing that both sides of the Israel/Palestinian "problem" requires the misery of their respective pawn populations to drive an evil adgenda.

Say it ain't so. History is a cruel teacher.

I wonder why Trump doesn't call out the hypocrites more often.
Then I realize there is no rush.  It's not like they're gonna stop giving him ammunition any time soon.

Giving Trump ammunition? LOL you got it backwards my friend he is the TROLL KING. Trump has gotten EVERY news agency, website,writer, talking head or blog talking about HIM 24/7.

Go ahead right now, Pull up any site you wish. 60-70% of ALL the articles are about HIM, even here. Never has any President so dominated the headlines in my entire lifetime.

Now sit back for a moment and think. WHO played WHO? Who is the sucker here?

lol your funny.
