Fox News Hosts Says Secret Service Should Assassinate Snoop Dogg and Bow Wow for Dissing Trump

While the US struggles with health care, North Korea, CIA leaks, Russian hackers, the rising number of hate crimes, a travel ban that’ll never work, bogus wiretapping charges and budget cuts to things like the EPA, the NIH and the National Endowment for the Arts, the nation has been captivated by a war between Donald Trump, Snoop Dogg and Bow Wow.

To review: Snoop Dogg’s latest video features him mock-shooting a clown that looks suspiciously like The Donald.

Trump responded with this tweet:

And then Bow Wow (formerly Lil Bow Wow) jumped in.

The Internet had a meltdown over this. And so did Fox News, with one host suggesting that the Secret Service should “kill” Snoop Dogg and Bow Wow. And note the homophobe joke, too.

Nice. Very constructive and not inflammatory at all. But perhaps these folks need a lesson in recent history when the shoe was on the other foot.

Look, none of what’s been said should be acceptable in a civilized society. Openly advocating an assassination of an American citizen over a parody? Using sexism and slavery jokes to fight back? Can’t we all just get along?

No, huh? More at The Huffington Post.
