Eminem has torn into US President Donald Trump with an uncompromising four-and-a-half minute freestyle that was performed at last night’s (October 10) BET Hip-Hop Awards. Taking on Trump, Eminem laid into his mishandling of Puerto Rico through to the NFL protests and his trips to Mar a Lago.
And Eminem doesn’t hold back: "When he attacks the NFL so we focus on that / Instead of talking about Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada / All these horrible tragedies and he’s bored and he / Would rather cause a Twitter storm at the Packers."
He also raps: “Any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his, I’m drawing in the sand a line / You’re either for or against / 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 you with this: fuck you.”
He goes on to call Trump a “spoiled little brat”, “stingy”, and “a kamikaze that'll probably cause a nuclear holocaust” and so much more besides. Check it out here:
Eminem’s savage attack has drawn praise across social media. NFL player Colin Karpernick – specifically mention by Eminem when he raps, “Fuck that, this is for Colin, ball up a fist/And keep that shit balled like Donald the bitch” – tweeted, “I appreciate you @Eminem”
Others, including Sean Diddy Combs, Snoop Dogg and comedian Ellen DeGeneres all wrote messages of support.

Strangely, Donald Trump has been uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter on this one. Or maybe he’s trying to come up with a freestyle of his own. We’ll see…
