So as you probably know by now, earlier this week Snoop Dogg released a video for his version of Kaytranada and BADBADNOTGOOD’s “Lavender” in which everyone but the Doggfather is a clown and Snoop Dogg shoots a clown version of President Donald Trump with a Joker-style gun that unfurls a “BANG” flag.
It’s a fairly unremarkable video, other than that scene, and it sort of tortures its main metaphor to death. But predictably, the video unleashed a shitstorm where people were saying Snoop went too far and that he should be investigated by the Secret Service.
Said shitstorm effectively hit F-5 when President Trump (whom Snoop once roasted) tweeted about the incident and said Snoop had a failing career:
Rapper Bow Wow then joined the fracas to stick up for Uncle Snoop and “threaten” to pimp out First Lady Melania Trump, in a since-deleted tweet:
And now Kimberly Guilfoyle, co-host of Fox News’ The Five, has weighed in with her own political acumen and twice said that the Secret Service should “kill” both Bow Wow and Snoop Dogg.
Yep, she said that. And then Guilfoyle pined for the Federal Marshals to check in on Bow Wow and Snoop to “see how tough and gangster they are then” (Snoop, of course, almost went to prison in 1996 for murder, so his “gangster bonafides” are fairly well-known).
To give Guilfoyle a mild amount of leeway, she was smiling when she said it the second time but never actually said, “I’m joking.” And the face her fellow co-host Juan Williams made when she said it suggests he didn’t quite see the innocent flippancy in her comment.
Check out the clip below to see Guilfoyle “joke” about the Secret Service murdering rappers and hear Greg Gutfield make gay jokes about Bow Wow. Beneath that, find the offending Snoop Dogg video, as well.
