The former mayor of New York City and former lawyer of Donald Trump appeared on 77 WABC this week, making it clear he wasn’t the slightest bit pleased with Em’s decision to kneel following his performance of “Lose Yourself.” During the same rant, he also expressed his distaste with Snoop Dogg saying the n-word and rapping lyrics that he perceived as anti-police.
“Let’s get right to Eminem taking a knee. Why doesn’t he go to another country? Go take a knee someplace else,” said Giuliani. “You know how many cops were defending him and protecting him at that game yesterday? I mean, crime is way out of control in Los Angeles. He thinks that all happened because everybody loves Eminem? The simple reality is that the NFL has made a mockery out of law enforcement, particularly with its support for the cop-killing Black Lives Matter.”
On Thursday’s edition of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the comedy show immediately sought to respond to Giuliani’s criticism by utilizing Em’s song “Lose Yourself.” The brief clip sees someone impersonate Em’s most iconic track, but the lyrics have been changed to highlight Giuliani’s hypocrisy and pearl-clutching behavior.
“Look, his skull’s not hairy/Teeth fake, thrice-ly married,” the fake Em raps in the sketch. “The leakage on his cheekage is scary/Probably sherry/He’s drunk, but on the surface he looks, well, drunk/He’s not hiding it, hope he doesn’t whip out his junk/Like that one scene/So obscene, he reached for peen.” The infamous Borat sequel scene in which Giuliani sticks his hand down his pants is then shown, before the song erupts into the chorus.
“You can go screw yourself / You’re a doofus, you know it,” the clip continues. “You bonehead, less ethical Nosferatu/Told me he’s had one shot/It smells more like 22/His cerebellum’s gone into rapid decline/ Douchenozzle!”
