Fox News’ Kimberly Guilfoyle wants President Trump to execute Snoop Dogg and Lil Bow Wow for shooting a toy gun at a clown that looks like Trump.
Greg Gutfeld had asked her on what she thought the Secret Service’s response should be to the “Lavender” music video.

“Kill them,” Guilfoyle said. “Kill them. I think it would be fantastic if Snoop and wannabe Snoop got a visit from, like, the federal marshals, and let’s see how tough and gangster they are then.”
President Trump also suggested that the rappers should be punished.
Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!

Trump and Guilfoyle’s did not seem compelled to express outrage, however, when effigies of Obama were burned and hanged after his election, in an obvious nod to Jim Crow lynchings.
Co-host Juan Williams, who is the only African American on the show, looked visibly shocked by Gutfield’s statements. Gutfield, however, laughed heartily at the casual suggestion of a president murdering two human beings for making a provocative video, chortling and saying “Yes!”
It goes without saying, of course, that the actions depicted in the music video are protected by the First Amendment, and are not illeg al in any way.
