It's disgraceful: Trump's lawyer on Snoop Dogg's mock video

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Donald Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, has 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

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.
