After labeling tax returns report "FAKE NEWS," Trump turns to Snoop Dogg

President Trump's first tweet today was to accuse David Cay Johnston, the Pulitzer-prize winning reporter who obtained some of the president's 2005 tax returns (which were verified by the White House), of "FAKE NEWS":

Does anybody really believe that a reporter, who nobody ever heard of, "went to his mailbox" and found my tax returns? @NBCNews FAKE NEWS! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 15, 2017

His second tweet turned to the rapper Snoop Dogg, who pointed a toy gun at a clown resembling Trump in a recently released video:

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! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 15, 2017
