Jamie Foxx is going viral with his impression of former President Donald Trump.

The actor and singer inspired fits of laughter during an appearance on the Rap Radar podcast with rapper Snoop Dogg. A clip posted to Twitter last week had more than 1.7 million views as of Sunday.

“There’s lots of great people on both sides, lots of great people on both sides,” Foxx said, invoking Trump’s controversial comments after the violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017.

Still in character, Foxx made reference to Trump commuting the prison sentence of Michael “Harry-O” Harris, co-founder of Death Row Records. He had served three decades for attempted murder and cocaine trafficking, and the commutation was praised by Snoop Dogg, who this year took over the Death Row record label that helped start his career.

“I know Harry O. He’s a great person. He couldn’t vote for me at the time. Now he can vote for me once he gets out. I love Snoop D-O-Double-G. Great person,” Foxx said.

Foxx also brought to life phrases Trump has become famous for, including, “excuse me, fake news.” He also tackled COVID-19.


“They tried to give me the virus. I beat the virus,” Foxx said, still impersonating Trump before he got out of character. “He said, ‘They’ tried to give him the virus. Who is ‘they’?” Foxx said in his own voice.

“I beat the virus!” Foxx declared, again in Trump’s voice, before again dropping the act and adding, “Everyone was like, ‘F*** yeah! He beat it!’ Motherf***ing Trump, boy.”

Foxx and Snoop Dogg were on the podcast with co-hosts Elliott Wilson, who posted the viral clip, and Brian “BDot” Miller as they promote their new Netflix film, Day Shift.
