Donald Trump sent a tweet today that speculated that Snoop Dogg would face jail time if the rapper shot a clown dressed as former President Obama in a video instead of one dressed as Trump.
“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 tweeted.

Yesterday Snoop Dogg released a new music video where he shoots a clown dressed as Trump with a toy gun, and says, “This is the final call.” A “bang” flag shoots out from the music star’s gun after he pulls the trigger.
There was obvious outrage from the right, and even Sen. Marco Rubio piped in, and said:
“We’ve had presidents assassinated before in this country, so anything like that, people should really be careful about that kind of thing. 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.”
