If you thought Kathy Griffin holding Donald Trump’s severed head was bad, wait till you see what Snoop Dogg has done for his new album cover art. Snoop Dogg has already depicted assassinating the President in a recent music video and now he has posted a picture on Instagram (that has since been deleted) showing the rapper standing next to the President’s dead body in a morgue with a toe tag reading “Trump” on the body, reports News Busters.
Not one of the three networks, ABC, CBS, or NBC, covered this disgusting story on Wednesday or Thursday, it was only FNC’s “Fox and Friends” that covered the story on Thursday.
This display of violence and even assassination towards the president isn’t the first time celebrities have felt the need to show violence towards President Trump.
“‘The very bizarre rock singer Marilyn Manson also has a music video in which a facsimile of Donald Trump is seen decapitated, blood everywhere, soon after Manson tears a Bible apart. Where was the coverage and condemnation?’
Before he was canceled, Nightly Show host Larry Wilmore pledged to suffocate Trump: ‘I don’t want to give him any more oxygen. That’s not a euphemism, by the way. I mean it literally. Somebody get me the pillow they used to kill [Antonin] Scalia and I’ll do it — I’ll do it!’ He had been honored by the White House Correspondents Association to perform a “roast” (think toast) of Obama, but where was the coverage and condemnation of this ‘joke’? reports MRC’s Brent Bozell and Tim Graham.”
This kind of behavior isn’t a surprise coming from the left though. Republicans have long come under fire from the left’s suggestion of violence and persecution. In 2006, a faux documentary imagined the assassination of George W. Bush. CNN promoted the film and there was no scene of outrage to be seen.
But when the opposite happens, and Democrats are made fun of or ridiculed, the media is all over it.
A Missouri rodeo clown chose to wear an Obama mask, and the Today show fretted over “rodeo racism” and quoted one spectator as decrying the act as “an effigy at a Klan rally.”
The next day, news reader Natalie Moralesbreathlessly explained, “The rodeo clown who wore a President Obama mask during a performance at the Missouri State Fair has been banned for life.”
What about when a rapper suggests sexually assaulting the First Lady, like Snoop Dogg’s nephew, Bow Wow, did back in March. Not a single word from the media.
Clearly, there are separate consequences for Republicans doing harmless jokes than Democrats insinuating violence and rape against conservatives.
