Arlington, VA – Florida Senator and sometimey Hip Hop fan Marco Rubio wasn’t too impressed with Snoop Dogg’s politically charged new video, “Lavender (Nightfall Remix),” which depicted the Boss Dogg aiming a toy gun at President Donald Trump’s cranium, before a bang flag shot out the barrel.
In fact, Rubio, 45, says the video could cause the iconic rap star some major problems down the line.
“Snoop shouldn’t have done that … You know, we’ve had presidents assassinated before in this country, so anything like that is really something that you should be very careful about,” Rubio told TMZ during a street interview at Reagan National Airport.
In the country’s history, four active U.S. Presidents have been shot to death (Abraham Lincoln; 1865, James A. Garfield; 1881, William McKinley; 1901 and John F. Kennedy; 1963) while Ronald Reagan and Theodore Roosevelt survived shooting attempts while in office.
The United States Senator continued, “I think people can disagree on policy but you’ve got to be very careful about that kind of thing because the wrong person sees that and gets the wrong idea, you can have a real problem. So I’m not sure what Snoop was thinking, he should think about that a little bit.”

Afterward, the interviewer asked Rubio “How’s everything else?” to which the senator replied, “It’s just going” with a sly grin as he made his way back to his transport. Anyone with two working eyes and ears can read between the lines of that parting exchange.
The now controversial “Lavender (Nightfall Remix)” is directed by Jesse Wellens and James DeFina and stars veteran actor Michael Rapaport.
