Posting a video on Instagram, Snoop Dogg has vented his anger about Donald Trump’s government shutdown.
He also urged government employees not to vote for Trump because “he doesn't give a f*** about y'all”, and called the controversial president a “punk mother***er”.
The Doggfather isn’t one one to mince his words.
He also used the message to address Trump supporters, saying: “F*** him too, and f*** everybody down with Donald Trump.
“All you people for the federal government that are not getting paid right now, ain't no f***ing way in the world you can vote for Donald Trump when he comes back up again.
“If ya'll do vote for him, y'all some stupid motherf***ers, I'm saying that to y'all early.”'All you federal government people that's not being paid, that's being treated f***ing unfairly right now... that's so terrible and this punk mother***ker don't care.”
The US government has been in partial shutdown for three weeks now - amid a row over funding for Trump's controversial border wall - which means many government workers and state services have been suspended. Around 800,000 employees in nine departments (parks, for example) have been affected - about 380,000 have been furloughed without pay while the rest are still working without pay.
Watch the video to see the full strength of Snoop’s rage about the issue, and a few other disses aimed directly at the president of the USA.
It’s not the first time Snoop’s made his views abundantly clear. He smoked a blunt in front of the White House in November while saying, “Fuck the president”, and he pointed a fake gun at a clown-styled Trump in his ‘Lavender’ video, when he recorded himself rapping over a Kaytranada/BADBADNOTGOOD instrumental collab.
Back in 2015 he was pretty clear about his support for Hillary Clinton in her bid to become Barack Obama’s successor.
“I’ll say that I would love to see a woman in office because I feel like we’re at that stage in life to where we need a perspective other than the male’s train of thought,” he said in a TV interview at the time.
“And just to have a woman speaking from a global perspective as far as representing America, I’d love to see that. So I’ll be voting for Mrs. Clinton.”
Could it be Snoop 2020? Stay tuned folks…
