Trump Vs Snoop Dogg - The Twitter War

Social media and news station alike are all buzzing about the latest tweets from President Donald Trump. The President has become rather infamous as of late due to his twitter outbursts and apparent lack of a verbal filter. This time however, Trump’s social media rampage had no political agenda. Instead the President fired shots at none other than the legend himself- Snoop Dogg.

On March 15th at 4:02 am, 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!”

Trump took to social media in response to Snoop’s latest music video, a remix of his song Lavender. Snoop’s video featured several characters with painted clown faces. The video portrays a strong message about police brutality and shootings within the black community, but that message is being overlooked by the media and the President himself. Instead, the character that stands out the most is an orange faced clown by the name of Ronald Klump.

In the video Klump is hit over the head with what appears to be a sock filled with powder while standing at a podium to make a speech and is knocked off balance with a dumbfounded look on his face.

Then Snoop is depicted holding a gun to Klump’s head and pulling the trigger. A sign reading “Bang!” materializes and Klump’s character disappears from the scene. When his character reappears again, he’s in chains. This particular part of the video is what has Trump and many of his supporters calling for jail time.

In response to being questioned about the nature of his video, Snoop is quoted to say “When I be putting ---- out, I don’t ever expect or look for a reaction. I just put it out because I feel like it’s something that’s missing. Any time I drop something, I’m trying to fill in a void. I feel like it’s a lot of people making cool records, having fun, partying, but nobody’s dealing with the real issue with this ------- clown as president.”

Not surpsing in the least that Snoop would have a far more diplomatic and mature response to the music video’s critics than the President himself did, given Trump’s history of being unable to hold his tongue on social media.

While this is certianly not the first artist to voice their politcal opions and address serious issues in our nation through their music- this is most certainly the first to get a direct response from Our Commander in Chief. Time can only tell how Donald will react next, but clearly, he is less than pleased with Snoop and his latest video release.

To add more fuel to the social media fire, rapper T.I responded to the President’s tweet with  a barrage of insults mocking everything from Trump’s appearance to his abilities as Chief of State.
