It’s no secret that rapper Eminem is not a fan of President Trump. He released a video last night at the BET Hip Hop Awards that viciously attacked Trump. Eminem was exceedingly angry and frustrated during his performance. Perhaps it’s time for another visit to the rehab clinic. In a four-minute freestyle rap entitled: “The Storm,” he ripped into President Trump for all he’s worth. Which isn’t all that much if you ask me. But since there is no according for taste anymore, it is the number one trending video on YouTube with over four million views since last night.
Eminem’s real name is Marshall Mathers. He is as well known for his substance abuse as he is for his stoic rap takedowns. This jerk is a violent guy and shows it. He was exceedingly emotional during the video and went back and forth between breathing heavily and angrily shouting into the camera. To me that’s a tantrum, not art, but what do I know? Eminem has built his career rapping about controversial topics in abrasive, vulgar ways. He actually toned down this performance, if you can believe it. This was a more measured evisceration of Trump. He called it the calm before the storm. Paging Antifa.

Frankly, I can’t stand Eminem. He doesn’t strike me as all that bright. He’s a performer and not a very good one. During his rap, he takes on a whole slew of topics including the NFL player protests, gun control, disaster relief, Trump’s treatment of former POW Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), illegal immigration and more. What it is really about is hating on Trump. It always is. The lyrics to his Trump-hatred can be read here.
Eminem thinks that Trump will cause a nuclear holocaust. No, if that happens, you can lay the blame for that on Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. If they had done their duty, we wouldn’t be on the precipice of war today with North Korea, Iran, China and Russia. He calls Trump crazy and a warmonger. The guy has no idea what he’s talking about. He’s just for whatever is radical and leftist. Eminem is a useful idiot for communists. He called the President everything from “Donald the b—-” to a “racist grandpa” in an explosive 4.5-minute freestyle rap. It was disgusting. He told his fans to choose between him and Trump. That’s not much of a choice if you ask me.

“And any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his, I’m drawing in the sand a line, you’re either for or against, and if you can’t decide who you like more and you’re split on who you should stand beside, I’ll do it for it for you with this. F— you,” he said toward the end, raising his middle finger. Classy. Right back at ya buddy. President Trump has not commented on this piece of trash yet. Don’t bother. On one hand, the rapper says he loves the military and his country, then he raises his fist for Colin Kaepernick and Black Lives Matter. Can’t have it both ways dude. Those are opposing stances.
You know for a 44 year-old man, Eminem never grew up. I guess that’s part of his persona. I don’t need political philosophizing from an aging rap artist thug. Eminem is an immoral addict and woman abuser as far as I’m concerned. I doubt his ‘criticism’ bothers the President in the least. Consider the source. He made it clear he loves Obama and Clinton. The guy’s a Marxist. And he has no discernible talent that I can see. Just another brain-fried radical leftist looking to cash in on President Trump. Bored now.
