Snoop Lion Endorses Obama For President; Says He Needs Eight Years To Complete Work


Celebrity endorsements are becoming popular in this year's election. Jenna Jameson and Nicki Minaj have openly endorsed presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

President Barack Obama has also received his fair share of celebrity endorsements. His latest support from the celebrity world comes from Snoop Lion, formerly known as Snoop Dogg.

The artists formerly known as Snoop Dogg made his endorsement at a press conference for his documentary Reincarnated, which is showing at the Toronto International Film Festival. There he told reporters that he is behind Obama 100 percent, Rolling Stone reported.

Snoop Lion went on to express his feelings about Obama's past four years "Let me begin, Obama for four more years, man," Snoop Lion said. "Bush f****d up for eight years, so, I mean, you gotta at least give [Obama] eight years. He cleaned half the s*** up in four years, realistically. It ain't like y'all gave him a clean house. Y'all gave him a house where the TV didn't work, the toilet was stuffed up - everything was wrong with the house," he said to a round of laughs from the reporters present.

"Lion" went on to say "So he had to come in and get your thing together, then he knocked down our most hated, the most wanted, the one who had our terror on orange or red or whatever color it was on - he went and found him, the one Bush couldn't seem to find, the one who seemed to fly away in the dead of night and all that," he continued, referring to Osama bin Laden.

"[Obama] went and found him and knocked him down, so don't forget about that. Now everybody is peaceful and able to move and go and have a good time - it's because he made that happen. So please don't forget that. You understand me? So give him [another] four years to get his thing together and finish this deal out. You heard what Clinton said. You loved Clinton, didn't you?"

In the documentary Reincarnated, Snoop mentions that his songs and style of music was never suitable to get him an invite to the White House.
