Early Wednesday morning, President Trump speculated that Snoop Dogg might face jail time if the rapper shot a clown dressed as former President Obama in a video instead of one dressed as Trump.
“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 tweeted.

Former presidential candidate and current Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) also seemed displeased. “We’ve had presidents assassinated before in this country, so anything like that, people should really be careful about that kind of thing,” Rubio told TMZ. “He should think about that a little bit.”

Mr. Rubio continued, “If the wrong person sees that and gets the wrong idea, you could have a real problem. I think people can disagree on policy, but we’ve got to be very careful about that kind of thing.”
