Snoop Dogg calls out Donald Trump over government shutdown
The West Coast legend isn’t impressed.
Snoop Dogg has been a consistent vocal challenger of the United States’ current administration. Most recently, the West Coast legend checked in with fans on social media to share his thoughts on the ongoing government shutdown by calling out Donald Trump for the dismal state of affairs.
In a video posted to Instagram on Sunday (Jan. 6), Snoop Dogg weighs in with his opinions pertaining to the shutdown, which is currently affecting the livelihood of thousands of federal employees across the country.
“All you people in the federal government that are not getting paid right now ain’t no way that you can vote for Donald Trump when he come up again,” Snoop says in the clip. “If y’all do vote for him, y’all some stupid muthaf—kas. I’m saying that to y’all early.”
According to reports, more than 800,000 federal workers deemed “essential” are required to work without pay. Others have been placed on temporary leave or have been furloughed. Workers across the departments of agriculture, commerce, justice, homeland security, housing and urban development, interior, state, transportation and treasury are being impacted significantly as the shutdown continues into its third week.
Elsewhere in the video, Snoop Dogg expresses how terrible it is that people are not getting paid due to the actions of the president.
“All you federal government people that’s not being paid, that’s being treated f—king unfairly right now…that’s so terrible,” he said. “And this punk motherf—ker don’t care.”
Then, Snoop wraps his rant with another warning for his fellow Americans.
“When the s—t get back on and y’all get y’all jobs back and it’s time to vote, don’t vote for that n—a. Please don’t,” Snoop concludes candidly. “Look what he do. Y’all honest, blue-collar, hardworking people in suffering. F—k everybody down with Donald Trump. You gonna shut the government down? Yous a piece of s—t.”
