Eminem vs Donald Trump


Recently, a video was uploaded to YouTube titled “Eminem Rips Donald Trump In BET Hip Hop Awards Freestyle Cyber”. As of the time that this article was originally written, it was the number one trending video on the site with over 23 million views.

Anyway, let’s see what Eminem has to say about dear old Donald Trump. Around the one minute mark finally something interesting is said: “But we better give Obama props, cause what we got in office now is a kamikaze that will probably cause a nuclear holocaust, and while the drama pops, and he waits for things to quiet down, he’ll just gas his plane up and fly around till the bombing stops.” Alright, nuclear holocaust aside, Eminem says that he was thankful for Obama, but I don’t think that he knows Obama is a big part of why Trump was elected.

In my opinion, President Obama did a pretty terrible job, and that’s why the country wanted Trump, to change things up. If Obama did a great job, people would’ve wanted Hillary because that would have been more of the same.

In the next bar of the song, Eminem says that Trump has no bxxxs. I would have to say that this is wrong because not only did Trump have the courage to run for President, he also had the courage to stand up to many powerful groups over the last year. He stood up to the Bush and Clinton political dynasties. He also stood up against Antifa and others on the radicalized left, and he’s been calling out the NFL and North Korea. So, saying that he has no bxxxs is pretty ignorant.
The next thing Eminem says is that racism is the only thing that Trump is fantastic at, also that he’s orange. Me personally, I’m still trying to figure out the racist stuff he’s done. I know people love to say that he’s racist, but saying something over and over again doesn’t make it true. Not commenting on the “He’s orange” bit, because I don’t see how it’s relevant.

Next Eminem says that Trump is attacking the NFL and instead of focusing on real issues, he is “starting Twitter wars with the Packers”. I don’t agree with the notion that Trump attacked the NFL out of nowhere. The NFL was messing up before Trump even got involved, what with the kneeling, the low ratings, and excessive penalties. Trump just called them out on it.

Eminem goes on to say how Trump bashed Hillary and Obama for using taxpayers’ money for traveling but does it more than them. I’ll admit there is some hypocrisy here on Trump’s part. He pestered Obama and Hillary for using the taxpayers’ money to travel.
Eminem then says that Trump supports the KKK. I think he should check his sources on that because it’s obviously not true.
Next, Eminem claims that Trump is saying that “If you’re a black athlete then that means you’re a spoiled brat for trying to use your platform or stature to give a voice to the voiceless.” Yes, athletes have a right to use their platforms to push politics, but that means we the viewers have the right to make fun of them for it.

Eminem then proceeds to say Trump is going to get rid of “ALL” immigrants. However, it’s only the illegal immigrants that are the issue. The ones who committed crimes to get into the country, and the ones who bring drugs, paraphernalia, and malicious intents.
Next, he says he is going to throw Trump against his border wall until he sticks to it. I understand that Eminem feels like he is a voice for the African American community, but it seems hypocritical that he is advocating violence against Trump. The far left tend to use violence to solve violence: think Antifa.
Then he goes on to tell his fans that if they are supporters of Trump that they are “deplorable” and need to either stand with Eminem or against him. Since he hates Trump, they should hate Trump, too; he even says “f” you! This is odd because I thought the left tolerated all people. What they seem to be saying is, “We tolerate you, unless you don’t agree with our ideals.”

All things aside, even though I think Eminem just did a stupid thing, I appreciate him giving me something to write about.
