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

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.

Ohhhhhhhhh that ass clown ..

A while back he was calling himself Snoop Lion, an effort to connect with his inner Rastafarian. Seems that did not work out so it's back to the old gangster image... marketing 101

Where is that video of Snoop sucking on Obamas cock? Or was it Michael?

I understand getting an article out post haste, but can y'all edit/proofread the damned thing just once!?!?

I've been saying that for years. I dont know why they refuse do it. Brings their credibility down by 50%.

Thank you!  was going to post something similar, also.

Liberal mantra - blame Trump. If the guy cured cancer, they'd be pissed because he didn't cure diabetes.

White person disagrees with Obama, obvious racist.
Black guy disagrees with trump, makes a video pointing a gun at and shooting a Trump look-a-like, artistic license, all in good fun and humor.

The actual video I want to see is of the young millenials protesting Obama's invasion of syria and libya

I thought it was considered an assault to aim your finger like a gun? Its certainly a threat to the president. He should be made a very public example of.

So some nigga, making a video of a clown being shot by a fake gun, could prompt the weaker minded peoples/children to want to copy that for real?

How about the U.S. troops and their Saudi affiliates/Ukrainazis killing, maiming, raping, and torturing men, women and children, and not just getting away with it, but being lauded as heroes on the nightly news?

Yep, that's right kids, put on a silly uniform and go and rape, maim and kill for the big oil companies, banks and Israel, you'll all be heroes!

Hypocrite much?

Hey Trump, six months ago I told all my friends you were gonna be GREAT, not just for the U.S. but for the whole world, and they laughed at me, well they're laughing even harder now, you twat!!

Disillusioned much?

Don't tell me you're pissy-whining like 'ol Mattie Drudge?

You want your vote back, too?

Have you tried not having any hope in anyone at the National level? Have you considered stopping praising people you really never knew or will know and trying to influence things over which you have no direct control?

Friedrich not Salma's picture

Valid points. But c'mon Snake, you know the cult of Trump on ZH will down vote any criticism.

Wouldn't it make America great if President Trump tweeted "All US support for Saudi/Yemen bombing has stopped."

Or

"We've been killing Syria. This is sick madness."

Or

"MIC needs to find a new way to make money."

Or . . .

He's been on the job a little over 2 months.

What have you accomplished in the past 2 months? As I remember, the last president managed to hold a "beer summit" between a disgruntled old nigger and a traffic cop in his first few months.

Perfect opp for Justin Bieber to come out in defense of Trump.

Well this is exactly how you get Gangster rap up off the floor and running. Calvin might be a little smarter then most people think. Nothing like a head of state repeating Ronald Reagan spat with Too Short. You know the only thing that worries me now is that History is repeating itself, and mistakes faster. Instead of learning from the past, people are repeating things faster. This doesn't end good!

Trust me the devil already has the contract ready to sign! Just wait!

We know what it looks like when the unworking, less educated in the black community riot.

Everyone might be surprised to see what it looks like when middle class whites do the same.

It won't be about taking TV's.  It will be about removing tyrants heads.

crossroaddemon's picture

Historically,  the middle class will be the last group to start shit. Middle class people simply have too much to lose and will probably keep taking it up the ass. Seriously... tell your wife you're gonna quit your job and march on DC with a hunting rifle. 

Sick Underbelly's picture

You have video of "what it looks like when middle class whites" riot?

Any historical context to demonstrate this "removing tyrants heads"?

There are many worldwide examples of the "middle class" being dramatically culled, their wealth seized, and bodies left around to serve as a reminder and warning.

Just make sure you put up a good fight, taking out 5 or 6 before they get you...you know...all that MOLON LABE shit, and stuff?

How about its time we start shooting the radical Leftists? lets see how they like that...except it wont be a video it will be the real deal. These vermin need to start eating their words with action not more words.

Ya know what would be really funny? How about a"mock" lynching of ol' Snoop the poop-that would be hilaiuos! :-D

You're not shooting anybody Pussy boy except for maybe your gay lover or wife and kids yourself. You actually have be able to identify a radical leftest which is of course a figment of your tiny tiny mind.

when i go to squeeze the trigger, no one will know, no one will see me, my "hunting rifle" will be firing paper patched so there will be no evidence.  it may not even make the news and i damn sure will not tell anyone.

Toshie's picture

It's an ugly TV reality show.

The conversation should be about creating jobs, fighting poverty, homelessness, unemployment, working towards a living wage, providing affordable health care like other developed and many developing countries do to their citizens. Invest in the young generation and try to make higher education affordable like other developed countries and many developing countries do.

Reduce global geographic tensions instead of action like a terrorist state bombing and invading little countries here and there.

This is an international forum here, so to the participating American citizens here ;- you got some serious house cleaning to do.

Hmmmm....looks like Trump held out on tax returns to stir up passions among those demanding to see them.

Took a page out of Obama's book? Same technique as the famous uproar about his birth certificate?

This is an inspirational video, Snoops very best work to date. this is grammy material

Im sure you say  the same thing about all your gay porn collection,,Inspirational. And your mother is still a Cunt...

And how much noise has the ZH comment section made about shooting politicians? Whatever. You guys only are butthurt in this case because you're dumb enough to think this politician is on your side. If it was Clinton you'd think it was hilarious. 

DistortedPictures's picture

Yes, a lot of the people on here are desperate for a hero figure...so, they have clung to Mr. Trump.  Sort of sad to see.

That's President Trump, son.

And Mrs. Clinton.

Butt hurt.

Still.

I see a lot of new accounts advocating for violence.  The longer residents here, tend to decry the violence, when they have an opinion on it.  So, I see the two above you as "new accounts" whether they are or not.

Unwashed's picture

It is odd. Trump won the Republican nomination because Republican voters hated the Republican party. He won the Presidency because more Republican voters hate Hillary than Democrat voters hated Trump. For the majority of voters, he was merely marginally less odious than his opponent.

IridiumRebel's picture

It's less about clinging to a hero and more about the system, that continued unabated up until 1/20/17, getting a nice system shock. TPP down, Isis getting confronted, Obamacare hopefully scrapped, wall in motion, biz regs eased, admin of the executive lessened....

Wtf so y'all expect? Him to roll in, burn the Eccles building down, execute 1/2 the federal work force and sell half the military on eBay?

Well, if it was Clinton, either one of them or preferably both, it would be better than hilarious.
