You can see Mr. Dogg's antics here.

Now, I would expect artists to mock leaders. I wouldn't expect a US president to respond, though. Am I wrong to think this way? Should the most powerful man in the Western world respond to mockery in this way?

Of course it's not a bad idea for Trump to respond, after all, it's not like there are many more important, pressing issues, like the deficit, immigration reform, North Korea, Russian hacking, terrorism in the Middle East, China trade policy, the AHA, etc, etc, etc...

Trump appears to be psychologically incapable of ignoring insults aimed his way. But yes, that would have been wise.

But I think we're past the point of expecting Trump to respond maturely to anything. Which is sad; after all one thing you'd hope for from the OLDEST elected American president EVER would be maturity...

It was a stupid idea, shooting a Trump clown in a music video. But artists do stupid things all the time in the name of art.

And Wendell put it much better about our president concerning his age and, ahem, maturity.

Not really impressed by the apparent desire to shoot the president. I can't recall any (for example) country songs about murdering Obama.

That said of course Trump responding at all is stupid and Trump's actual response was stupid because we have a stupid president.

It may play to his base though, pointing out a black man doing a mock killing of himself to many of his base who would have never seen this video otherwise. It helps drive a bigger wedge to keep him from losing too many of the faithful due to his numerous unkept promises. When things start to slip he can always start demonizing BLM

No its definitely great for him. He should just have handled it differently, have for example Spicer call on the left to denounce the apparent call to murder the president. That puts the left in a box of either going up against a popular black artist or setting themselves up to seem soft on death threats on the president.

Perhaps Americans should start the Diaper Party. Mail the POTUS some diapers he can use until he decides to grow the hell up.
