"I'm at the White House smoking," he said in a video uploaded to Instagram. "F*** the president."

Snoop is in Washington for a play he stars in that is inspired by his life. "Redemption of a Dogg" features his music, and there are five performances scheduled at Warner Theater between Friday and Sunday.
The rapper has long been a vocal critic of President Trump. During Comedy Central's roast of Trump in 2011, he joked about Trump's presidential aspirations, saying it "wouldn't be the first time you've pushed a black family out of their home." And in 2017, he released the music video for "Lavendar," featuring a clown Trump lookalike that he pulls a cartoon gun on in one scene.
After posting his videos in front of the White House, Snoop posted another video using a Kanye West face filter to pretend to be West condemning him for being disrespectful and a bad role model. He captioned the video writing, "I'm sorry Kanye" and "F.D.T.," the title of a 2016 anti-Trump song by Nipsey Hussle.
Marijuana became legal for recreational use in Washington, DC, after voters approved it in 2014, but there are also significant barriers to its use. It is barred in 21.6% of the city owned by the federal government, including Lafayette Park, which is run by the National Park Service. Sale of marijuana is also prohibited in the city, blocked in 2014 by a Republican House.
With an incoming Democratic House, Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser said this week she plans to introduce legislation fully legalizing marijuana, according to the Washington Post.
