Could Snoop Dogg Face Felony Charges For “Assassinating” President Trump In New Video?

In his new “Lavender” video, Snoop Dogg “assassinates” a Donald Trump–lookalike clown at close range.

The Secret Service security detail is “aware of” the video, according to TMZ, but the agency has not yet revealed whether they plan to investigate or interrogate the rapper in connection with issuing direct threats against a President.

Yesterday President Trump tweeted a response, writing: “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!”

In an interview with TMZ Live, Trump attorney Michael Cohen warned Snoop to “respect the office of the president,” and cautioned the rapper that he “played very close to the line here.”

The video for “Lavender” (Nightfall Remix) ft. Kaytranada & Snoop Dogg features the rapper and a cast of clowns, including one played by actor Michael Rapaport. Snoop fires a pistol, at “Klump,” and a gunshot can be heard, but instead of a bullet, a giant “BANG” flag pops out.

TMZ reported that Snoop told Billboard he made the song because, “Nobody’s dealing with the real issue with this f****** clown as a president.”

The video has gone viral and racked up over 4,700,000 million views so far on YouTube.

In a mock breaking-news clip, Klump is seen at a “Clown House” press conference where the TV news crawl reads “Ronald Klump wants to deport all doggs.”

Republican leader Marco Rubio has spoken out against Snoop Dogg in public, saying:

We’ve had presidents assassinated before in this country, so anything like that is something people should be really careful about. I think people can disagree on policy, but we’ve got to be careful about that kind of thing because the wrong person sees that and gets the wrong idea, and you could have a real problem.”
