Snoop Dogg says he is done throwing insults at Donald Trump, suggesting that he would instead use the energy spreading love. During a recent interview with TV One, The West Coast hip-hop pioneer revealed why he doesn’t’ see the point hurling attacks at the president.
“You don’t answer to politics with negativity and the same energy that they have, because you’ll never win,” Snoop explained. “This is the system that they designed. You can only beat the system by being the anti, and the anti-hate is love, so that’s what we do. Because I hated on the president. I came at him way foul at the beginning.”
Last year, Snoop found himself in the crosshairs of Trump after shooting a clown version of the president during the video for BadBadNotGood's Lavender. However, Snoop maintains that the animosity individuals have for Donald Trump’s antics or remarks only seem to energize the commander-in-chief.
“I felt the way y’all feel,” he said. “Because this president, whatever color you are, is very disrespectful to you as a human being. We took a few stands on him. Put a few pieces up, videos and threw a few shots at him. But I felt, that’s going nowhere fast ’cause he loves that.”
He continued, “He’s one of those guys who he tweeted me for something I did and said my career fell off and then made my career blow up even bigger. I said, ‘This is a dummy. This is a straight dummy.’ This is a straight dummy.’ Let me leave him alone, cuz, and put some peace in the world and put some love in the world and not focus on him. ‘Because the devil’s a lie. Just put some peace in the world, and you should unite people of all walks of life and be the anti to what he is.”
