Rapper Snoop Dogg shoots a clown character named "Ronald Klump" who is dressed as President Donald Trump in a new music video released Sunday.

The video for the Snoop Dogg remix of the song "Lavender" shows a world where everyone but Snoop Dogg are clowns. The song and video are about police brutality, the Hill reports. The lyrics in the video are explicit.

At 2:07 in the video, Klump is speaking at a podium for the "Clown House" when an object comes from the side and clubs him over the head. At 3:00 in the video, Snoop Dogg fires a toy gun at Klump's head, with a "bang" flag dropping out of the gun when he pulls the trigger. Klump is later seen standing wrapped in chains.

Snoop Dogg was a supporter of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election. Snoop Dogg did appear on Comedy Central's "Roast of Donald Trump" as a roaster.

In an interview about the "Lavender" video, Snoop Dogg says that, "nobody’s dealing with the real issue with this f--king clown as president."

There's been no shortage of bad attempts at humor while discussing assassinating politicians. During the 2008 election, conservative commentator Liz Trotta had to apologize for a "lame attempt at humor" for a joke she made about then-Senator Barack Obama being assassinated. Then-Senator John Kerry also made a joke about killing then-President George W. Bush while talking to Bill Maher.
