Eminem has been vocal about his hatred of President Donald Trump this year, and it reached a new level when the rapper spent his entire BET Hip Hop Awards freestyle going after the Combover.
Em’s new album Revival contains jabs at Trump and his administration on songs such as “Framed,” “Like Home,” and “Offended.” In a recent interview with Vulture, Em talked about why he hates Trump so much.
“He makes my blood boil. I can’t even watch the news anymore because it makes me too stressed out,” the rapper said. “All jokes aside, all punch lines aside, I’m trying to get a message out there about him. I want our country to be great too, I want it to be the best it can be, but it’s not going to be that with him in charge.”
The rap god is still pretty agitated that Trump hasn’t responded to his freestyle—not even on his favorite social media app, Twitter. If Trump does, Em says he has more ideas and lines ready for a rebuttal.
“I want him to answer me because I got ideas for all kinds of shit to say back to him if he does,” he says. “I’m not going to give any away now, but I’ve got lines ready if he says something about me. I get almost flustered thinking about him—that’s how angry he makes me.”
Em didn’t get exactly what he wanted, but one member from Trump’s family did respond to him: Donald Trump Jr. The Patrick Bateman lookalike tries to call Eminem out, but ends up sounding idiotic.
Em hasn’t clapped back at the tweet about his freestyling abilities yet. Once he finds out about it, you know he’s well-prepared for another four-minute onslaught.
