Snoop Dogg "shoots" Trump character in new music video

Snoop Dogg points a fake gun at a character dressed as a clown-President Donald Trump character and pulls the trigger in his new video. It's the kind of toy gun that unfurls a little flag that says "BANG!" so the segment is pointed without being graphic. Earlier in the video, though, a police officer, also dressed as a clown, shoots a motorist after a traffic stop while a passerby films it on his cell phone.

"F*** the police," Snoop raps.

UPDATE: Rapper Bow Wow threatens to "pimp" Melania Trump and "make her work for us"

The profanity ridden video directed by  Jesse Wellens and James DeFina features a "Ronald Klump" as the head clown in chief, running a country of clowns.

The actual president hasn't yet responded via Twitter, his favorite form of widespread communication, but his one-time rival, Sen. Marco Rubio, told TMZ, "Snoop shouldn't have done that ... You know, we've had presidents assassinated before in this country."
