Eminem slams Trump in profane video, calls him racist

(AP) — Eminem has unleashed a profane lyrical tirade against President Donald Trump — saying he “came to stomp” and taking aim at Trump’s Twitter habits, policy, appearance and supporters.

The rapper on Tuesday unveiled “The Storm,” a 4½-minute freestyle rap video recorded Friday in a Detroit parking garage that aired as part of BET’s Hip Hop Awards on Tuesday night.

Eminem slammed the Republican president as “a kamikaze who will probably cause a nuclear holocaust” before criticizing Trump’s ongoing campaign against NFL national anthem protests.

“But this is his form of distraction, plus he gets an enormous reaction when he attacks the NFL, so we focus on that instead of talking Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada. All these horrible tragedies and he’s bored and would rather cause a Twitter storm with the Packers,” he rapped.

He later mentioned NFL free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who’s credited with launching the ongoing anthem protests. Kaepernick told the rapper on Twitter, “I appreciate you.”

Eminem also took down Trump’s recently unveiled plan for tax cuts, questioning: “then who’s going to pay for his extravagant trips back and forth with his fam to his golf resorts and his mansions?”

At one point he called Trump, who’s 71, a “racist 94-year-old grandpa” and compared the president’s appearance to the Marvel Comics character “The Thing.”

The 44-year-old rapper closed out his rant with a message to his fans who support Trump, saying “I’m drawing in the sand a line, you’re either for or against.” He added that people who don’t support the president love the military and the country, but “hate Trump.”

The White House didn’t respond to a request for comment on the video, and Trump didn’t mention it while tweeting on several issues Wednesday morning.
This is Eminem’s most recent rhymed attack on Trump. It follows up last year’s nine-minute freestyle track “Campaign Speech” and a verse earlier this year on Big Sean’s “No Favors.”

    I had to Google Eminem to find out who he is. I am sure the vast majority of people living today have no idea who he is. I am pretty sure Trump could care less about what he has to say.

    Is this really news

    Whatever happened to the cheerful news stories with pleasant endings

  • Sick of media politics

    Very poor reporting by Fox news. Why do we care what eminem thinks? Are you going to individually post what each of the other 300 million Americans think of the POTUS?

    Why do only those who disrespect POTUS get publicity?

      You are 100% correct. Thank you.
      Funny, I have seen no stories about the poor judgement of the Obama duo sending their 18 yr old to do an internship with Harvey Weinstein for an entire summer. Or the weak, plagiarized response by Hills, after about a week, & only today was she shamed into returning to charity some of the mega money donated to the clintons by their bud, Weinstein. She was on the nra bashing train within a couple of hours of the horrendous events in Vegas. But……..they give us this. It drives the train where the media wants it to go.
