Eminem took a stand against Donald Trump. The rapper dedicated a nearly five-minute freestyle routine solely to the former Celebrity Apprentice host and his policies in a taped segment that aired at the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards.
The Grammy winner tackled everything from Trump’s stance on inmigration and his failure at disaster relief. It also talks about his recent controversy with the NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem as a peaceful form of protest against police’s unfair treatment of African Americans.

“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,” he raps in the video shot in Detroit. “All these horrible tragedies and he’s bored and would rather/ Cause a Twitter storm with the Packers.”
“Now, if you’re a black athlete / You’re a spoiled little brat / For tryna use your platform or your stature / To try to give those a voice who don’t have one,” Eminem continued to rap. “He says, ‘You’re spittin’ in the face of vets who fought for us, you bastards’ / Unless, you’re a POW who was tortured and battered / ‘Cause to him, you’re zeros / ‘Cause he don’t like his war heroes captured / That’s not disrespecting the military.”
Eminem didn’t hold back when accusing Trump of increasing the tension between himself and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the risk of potentially driving both nations to nuclear war.
“We better give Obama props/’Cause what we got in office now is a kamikaze/That will probably cause a nuclear holocaust/While the drama pops,” The Real Slim Shady singer says. “And he waits for s–t to quiet down/He’ll just gas his plane up and fly around/Till the bombing stops.”
Eminem also made it clear that his fans would have to make a choice between himself and the failed business man. “Any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his/ I’m drawing in the sand a line: you’re either for or against,” he says. “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–k you.”
