Snoop Dogg doesn’t seem to like the sound of someone suggesting that President Trump can be a reasonable person.
During a panel Saturday on criminal justice reform at the South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas, the rapper remarked on a comment made by fellow panelist Mark Holden, general counsel for Koch Industries.
Speaking on the need for reform on the federal level, Holden weighed in on the likelihood of the president backing some sort of legislation after prior attempts in Congress were stalled by politics.
“And we’re just going to wait and see what happens if there’s an opportunity. Every president needs wins. … This is an issue, if he wants to help people, and he talked about helping people — African Americans and Latinos — this is something to sort of reach out to them. That he really does care,” Holden said. “Once he understands what’s in these bills, I’m confident that there’s no way anyone reasonable would oppose them.”
He began saying, “Because all we’re talking about is keeping some people out of the system who …”
At that point Snoop Dogg interjected: “You just said nobody reasonable.” The line drew a loud wave of cheers from the audience.
“But I.. um. There are people in this administration who will read it,” Holden continued, followed by moe laughs.
“There you go. That sounds much better,” Snoop Dogg replied.
Holden went on to name those particular administration officials, not named Donald Trump, who might be interested in the legislation, including Vice President Mike Pence and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
This exchange on Saturday follows a controversy over a music video Snoop Dogg released last week in which he fires a prop gun at the head of a clown made to resemble Trump.
Trump responded to the music video on Twitter. “Can you imagine what the outcry would be if Snoop Dogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!”, he tweeted.
