It’s not often that we kinda agree with President Trump on something but this . . .
By now you’ve seen Snoop Dogg’s latest video for “Lavender” where he points a toy gun at a man clearly supposed to be Trump. When he pulls the trigger a “Bang” sign pops out and everyone laughs, right. No, not really.
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!

You know what? He’s got a point. Not sure Snoop would get jail time if it had been Obama, but the outcry WOULD be huge. Look, any time someone talks about assassinating the president, it should be treated seriously. But before Trump gets too excited that a Black organization somewhat agrees with him, he would do well to remember another musician with assassination on his mind: Ted Nugent.
The former rock star turned NRA poster-boy was tapped by Trump to head up a rally in the last stretches of the 2016 campaign DESPITE his record of saying REALLY horrible things about Obama and Hillary Clinton. What things you ask?
At a 2007 concert, in front of other human beings Nugent said — INTO A WORKING MICROPHONE — “Hey Obama, you might want to suck on one of these you punk!” The “these” he was referring to were twin machine guns (complete with gun firing soundtrack).
Classy, right? He wasn’t done.
“Hey Hillary you might want to ride one of these into the sunset you worthless bitch!” Keep in mind, Obama and Clinton were sitting U.S. Senators and running to be President.
So yeah, maybe Snoop shouldn’t have done what he did, but Trump seems more than hypocritical for crying “unfair” with Nugent’s skeleton in his closet.
TELL US: Does Trump have a point about Snoop’s video or does he seem hypocritical for taking offense?
