Snoop Dogg became the latest celebrity to feel the wrath of Donald Trump’s Twitter fingers. President Trump, who should be busy in his attempt to “make America great,” found time to blast Snoop Dogg on Twitter.

Trump was allegedly disgusted by Snoop Dogg’s art. In Snoop’s video for the song “Lavender,” a Donald Trump doppelgänger is dressed as a clown. At one point in the video, Trump’s doppelgänger threatens to deport all dogs. The video’s controversial moment occurs when Snoop aims a gun at the fake version of Trump. Snoop pulls the trigger and the “Bang” flag protrudes from the fake gun.

Snoop revealed why he used art to attack Trump who has caused chaos in Washington and across the nation since he became president in January. “It’s a lot of clown s— going on that we could just sit and talk on the phone all day about, but it’s a few issues that we really wanted to lock into [for the video] like police, the president and just life in general,” Snoop told Billboard.

Trump responded to the video by tweeting, “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!”

Trump’s reluctance to act presidential should be alarming. While the country faces major battles in healthcare, education, and police brutality, to name a few, Trump thinks it’s okay to play around on social media. Trump would rather be on reality TV than run the country.

It’s imperative that the U.S. Congress find a way to remove him from office before the country faces a major crisis. His habitual lies, lack of transparency, and lack of focus could put all Americans in danger.

Snoop Dogg has yet to respond to Trump’s rant and should leave it alone. For the country’s sake, we all need Trump to pay attention to real matters.
