Detroit's Eminem ripped into our commander-in-chief during Tuesday night's BET Hip Hop Awards, attacking his stance on the NFL and accusing him of promoting racism and distracting America from more pressing issues, reports Adam Graham of the Detroit News.
In a 4 1/2 minute video taped inside a downtown Detroit parking lot, Eminem delivers an angry, free-style rap saying “Racism’s the only thing he’s fantastic for,” comparing Trump to the Fantastic Four’s orange monster, Thing.
“We better give Obama props, ’cause what we’ve got in office now is a kamikaze that will probably cause a nuclear holocaust,” Eminem raps.
He goes on to accuse Trump of using the NFL issue to distract from more important things:
“Plus he gets an enormous reaction / when he attacks the NFL so we focus on that and / instead of talking Puerto Rico, or gun reform from Nevada / all these horrible tragedies, and he’s bored and would rather / cause a Twitter storm with the Packers,” Em says.
