Los Angeles: Three days after popular rapper Snoop Dogg released his music video where he fires a fake pistol at a 'clown' lookalike of Donald Trump, the President finally responded to the track and tore the artist apart in his trademark 'tweet' style.

Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!

Donald Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, also responded to Snoop Dogg's "Lavender" music video, saying the rapper owes an apology to the US President.

Dogg recently released "Lavender" music video which mocks police brutality in America and Trump.

In the video, the "Drop It Like It's Hot" rapper pointed a fake gun at a clown version of the controversial President, Ronald Klump.

Trump's lawyer, Cohen, did not react well to this video. He called it "totally disgraceful" and "not artistic." Cohen then demanded Dogg to apologize to the president, because "there is nothing funny about an assassination attempt on a president."

In an exclusive interview with TMZ, Cohen said that he would have the same objection if it had happened to Barack Obama.

He added, "Just because you want to hide behind the guise of artistic capabilities or artistic freedom of speech doesn't make it right, and Snoop knows that. And he played very close to the line here."

At the end of the interview, Cohen said, "You know what's really sad is that there is so much more that Snoop can do for this country.

"Maybe there are other things he can do to help the inner cities get past the violence, the drugs, and the killings going on instead of showing more killings."
