Rapper Snoop Dogg wrote on social media that Trump has not tweeted about the Waffle House shooting because the incident involved a deranged white guy killing black people, and that Trump would be tweeting up a storm if the situation was reversed or if the suspect were a Muslim.
Over the weekend, an armed gunman walked into a Waffle House in Antioch, Tennessee, and shot four people to death before a heroic black man, James Shaw Jr., wrestled him to the ground. Snoop says that Trump’s silence on Twitter is proof positive that he’s a racist.
“If a Muslim shot up a restaurant full of white people, the ‘president’ would be tweeting up a storm, driving his dumb racist base into a frenzy,” Snoop said in an Instagram post.
“The NRA would use it as fodder for propaganda to scare dumb racists into buying more guns,” he continued.
On Monday, a man mowed down several people on the streets of Toronto with a van, killing 10 and wounding 15. Trump has not tweeted anything about that incident, either.
It’s not as if Snoop Dogg can claim to be some arbiter of peace and tolerance, given that he once produced a music video in which he assassinated a clown who resembled President Trump. He also previously posted an expletive-laden message to the president where virtually every other word uttered was either “b**ch,” “s**t,” “f**k” or “motherf***er.”
