TORONTO - Rap icon Snoop Dogg gave an expletive-filled endorsement for another four years of President Barack Obama on Friday, saying the US leader needs more time to put the White House in order.

Former President George W. Bush "fucked up for eight years so you at least gotta give (Obama) eight years. He cleaned up half the shit in four years realistically," the rapper said.

"It ain't like you gave him a clean house. Y'all gave him a house with a TV that didn't work, the toilet was stuffed up; everything was wrong with the house."

Americans "need to give Obama four more years," Snoop added during a press conference at the Toronto International Film Festival, where he premiered a documentary on his turn to reggae under the moniker Snoop Lion.
