​Donald Trump Fires Back at Snoop Dogg on Twitter

A fake Donald Trump was the victim of a fake assassination in a music video earlier this week, but the real president of the United States of America has responded to the controversy on Twitter this morning (March 15).
That's right, Trump has fired off a tweet in response to the video for Snoop Dogg's remix of BADBADNOTGOOD and Kaytranada's "Lavender," which depicts the rapper firing a gun at a clown-like politician named Ronald Klump.
The president seemed upset that there wasn't as much outcry at the onscreen depiction as there would have been had Obama been the man getting parodied in the video, and insinuating that supporters would be demanding "Jail time!" for the rapper if the politicians' roles were reversed.

Yesterday, Trump's lawyer also issued a response to the video, saying: "It's totally disgraceful. Snoop owes the president an apology. There's absolutely nothing funny about an assassination attempt on a president, and I'm really shocked at [Snoop] because I thought he was better than that."
The video's director Jesse Wellens, meanwhile, has been clear in intentions since releasing the video, insisting, "It's just a prank, bro."
