West Coast rapper Snoop Dogg takes no days off. The hip-hop veteran hit up social media to react to the Golden State Warriors skipping out on a White House visit to link up with former president Barack Obama in Washington, DC.
Snoop Dizzle went to Instagram this week and flamed President Donald Trump not getting a face-to-face with the 2018 NBA champions.
Social media has flooded with pics from the Obama meeting.

Over the past few years, the Warriors have publicly announced their disinterest in celebrating their championship titles at the White House with Trump in office.
The Warriors visited Obama, a huge hoops fan, in the White House in February 2016 to celebrate their 2015 championship. They did not go to the White House to celebrate their 2017 win. After some players on the team, including Stephen Curry, said they would not visit if invited, President Donald Trump tweeted that the invitation was withdrawn. (ESPN)
Despite his denial, reports speculate Warriors star Steph Curry played a key role in the Obama gathering.
The three-time NBA champion, who was spotted chatting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after the game, however, dismissed the suggestion. “I have no idea,” he said, when asked if he had played a part in organizing the visit. Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was also absent from the meeting and he declined to explain why he had not joined the team. “That’s private,” Kerr was quoted as saying by The Mercury News. “Appreciate the question. Doesn’t mean I have to answer it.” (Newsweek)
