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.”

Is Trey Songz Completely Out Of Control?!
Trey Songz used to be a singer known for sexually suggestive lyrics and his panache for saying “yuuuup.” Now, he may be known more as an R&B singer with a possible rage problem…
Trigga Trey has been accused of smacking a girl in the face with her own phone and now that accuser is suing for $50,000. The unidentified woman says that while at Philadelphia’s Vanity Grand Cabaret strip club she sought to get a snapshot with the singer, but he didn’t oblige. Instead, according to the woman, he pushed her phone back into her face and caused her glasses to break.
If true, this isn’t Trey’s first time getting way too aggressive for no d@mn reason. Just last year he became so upset over authorities ending his show in Detroit that he threw microphones and speakers from the stage. Unfortunately, he also injured a police officer in the process. In August, he reached a plea deal in that case and got his felony assault charge reduced to just two counts of disturbing the peace.
So, back to the fan who just wanted a photo. It looks like she’s only seeking coin and not criminal charges. And in Songz’s defense he does take pictures with some fans (see below), so maybe it was just the way she asked.
