Noted hip-hop head and former presidential candidate Marco Rubio is not a fan of Snoop Dogg’s latest takedown of President Trump.
On Sunday, Snoop released a controversial video for his new politically charged single “Lavender.” In it, the West Coast rapper mock-assassinates a “clown president” named Ronald Klump.
“Snoop shouldn’t have done that,” said Sen. Rubio (R-Fla.) in a quickie interview with TMZ outside Reagan National Airport in Washington. “You know we’ve had presidents assassinated before in this country, so anything like that is really something you should be very careful about.”
Political disagreements are one thing, but Snoop’s video takes the public discourse to a dangerous place, Rubio said.
“The wrong person sees that and gets the wrong idea and you could have a real problem,” added Rubio, who has said in an interview that he was “more of a West Coast fan” when it came to the geographical rap wars of the ’90s.
