During BET Hip Hop Awards ceremony Eminem went off on President Trump in an unfiltered attack. The pre-recorded video attacked Trump on every issue a liberal celebrity would be mad about.
The rapper even called the president a “racist 94-year-old grandpa”, slamming his feud with the NFL.
The video, called “The Storm”, is 4 minutes long and covers everything from the deadly Charlottesville protest, the NFL protests , Puerto Rico, North Korea, and the list goes on. It was filmed in Detroit.
“He gets an enormous reaction/When he attacks the NFL so we focus on that/Instead of talking Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada/All these horrible tragedies and he’s bored and would rather/Cause a Twitter storm with the Packers,” Eminem raps.

“This is for Colin, ball up a fist,” he says. “And keep that s–t balled like Donald the B—h.”
He continues: “Now, if you’re a black athlete/You’re a spoiled little brat for trying to use your platform or your stature/To try to give those a voice who don’t have one.”
Eminem goes on to reference the North Korean crisis and the war of words between Trump and leader Kim Jong Un. He accuses Trump of escalating the tension that would drive the countries to a nuclear war.
“We better give Obama props/’Cause what we got in office now is a kamikaze/That will probably cause a nuclear holocaust/While the drama pops/And he waits for s–t to quiet down/He’ll just gas his plane up and fly around/Till the bombing stops,” he says.
The rapper also says racism is the only thing Trump is “fantastic 4,” referencing Marvel’s comic book series and associating him to the character The Thing, because “he’s orange.” He also accuses the president of disrespecting the U.S. military.
“He says you’re spitting in the face of vets who fought for us/Unless you’re a POW who’s tortured/’Cause to him you’re zero ’cause he don’t like his war heroes captured,” Eminem says.
He finalizes the freestyle with this statement: “Any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his. 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,” he says.
Concluding, Eminem states: “The rest of America stand up/We love our military, and we love our country/But we hate Trump.”
NFL players and celebrities praised the rapper for his verbal attack on Trump shortly after the freestyle aired. Kaepernick tweeted, “I appreciate you @Eminem” after a shout out to the former 49ers player.
