Earlier this week, rapper #Snoop Dogg released a new music video where he appeared to pull out a toy gun and point it at a clown-inspired version of Donald Trump. In response, the president fired back on Twitter, which resulted in instant backlash from the political left and right.
Tomi on Snoop
In the music video for the song "Lavender," Snoop Dogg mocks Presidential Donald Trump as a clown, giving the White House the nickname the "Clown House." During the video, Snoop Dogg is shown pointing a gun at the president, pulling the trigger, but only revealing a flag with the word "Bang" written across. On Wednesday morning, the president lashed out on social media over the incident, tweeting, "Can you imagine what the outcry would be if Snoop Dogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama?," before calling for the rapper to serve "Jail time!" After Trump's comments, fellow rapper Bow Bow came to the defense of his uncle, and sent a threatening message to the First Family. "Ayo @realDonaldTrump shut your punk ass up talking shit about my uncle @SnoopDogg before we pimp your wife and make her work for us," Bow Wow wrote. These issues, and more, were highlighted with #Tomi Lahren on the March 18 edition of "Watters' World" on Fox News.
(Lahren's comments on the issue start at 3:00 in the above video.)
Joining Fox News host Jesse Watters was right-wing firebrand Tomi Lahren, who didn't hold back her thoughts on the issue at hand. After playing a clip from the aforementioned music video, Lahren ripped into the rappers for their comments, while calling out liberals in Hollywood for not coming to the defense of the Trump family.
"Can you imagine if that were a President Obama clown," Lahren asked, before predicting, "there would be an uproar." "I'm wondering where all the celebrities are?" Lahren went on to say, calling out actor Ashton Kutcher for not speaking out against Bow Wow's remarks, while being a strong advocate against sex trafficking.

Tomi on Lahren
The conversation then shifted to "The View" co-host #Whoopi Goldberg, who is now looking to take legal action against a conservative blogger who published a false news story that the actress says endangered her family's life. After running a clip of Goldberg's comments, Tomi Lahren mocked the award-winning actress, while sarcastically wondering why she hasn't left the country, despite vowing to do so after Donald Trump's election win.
