Donald Trump’s Twitter fingers have been busy this morning. The President of the United States is using social media to fire back at Long Beach rapper Snoop Dogg over a controversial music video released this week.
Trump’s digital quip was prompted by his mock assassination in the remix visuals for “Lavender.” In that video, Snoop holds a gun to the head of a clown dressed like Donald Trump. Trump tweeted a clap back at the rapper, but didn’t pass up the opportunity to drag a former president he’s creepily obsessed with into the fold — that being Barack Obama.
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!

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz have also spoken out, saying, in essence, that there’s no place for Snoop’s brand of artistic expression in society. “Snoop shouldn’t have done that,” Rubio said Tuesday during an impromptu video with TMZ. “We’ve had presidents assassinated before in this country, so anything like that is something people should really careful about.”
“We have a really sad history in this country of attempted and successful assassinations and it’s irresponsible for a musician or artist to encourage murdering the president,” Cruz added. “I think anyone reasonable or responsible should be disagreeing with the video. We should not be advocating the murder of the President of the United States, and it’s sad that that is deemed a controversial statement.”

Did Toni Braxton Try To Upstage Rihanna At Her Own Birthday Party?!
Well, by the looks of it, yes … yes, she did.
Rihanna celebrated her 30th birthday this week and, in true Bad Gal fashion, hosted a swanky soiree for the occasion. As the pictures show, it was a time for drinks, dancing and turning up with her closest gal pals.
It was also a time for Ri Ri to meet her “fav”, Ms. Toni Braxton! In a sweet IG post, Rihanna thanked Toni for making her night “so special.” She also put her on blast for showing up to the party with her sideboob on full display. ” I’ll never forgive you for looking this good at my party tho,” Ri playful posted in her caption. We have to admit though, Braxton came to serve!
