In October, Eminem went nuclear against Donald Trump at the BET Hip Hop Awards.
The Singer rapped some fierce “The Storm” against the president calling him names. This invited ire from Donald Trump‘s followers.
Not a lot of people like Trump recently Michael Wolff called him a Stupid Bald Man.

Addressing his 11 fiercest lines and the back lash, the love yourself singer tells all in an interview.
“ At the end of the day, if I did lose half my fan base, then so be it, because I feel like I stood up for what was right and I’m on the right side of this. I don’t see how somebody could be middle class, busting their ass every single day, paycheck to paycheck, who thinks that that fucking billionaire is gonna help you.”
Eminem also challenged his own fans in the 4.5 minute rant about trump.
“And 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 it for you with this. F— you,”
These lines and the middle finger, is something that in unprecedented for an artist. After all, they top the Bill Boards with the support of their fans. This goes to show the Eminem really detest the current President.
“A fucking turd would have been better as a president.”
” I know that Hillary [Clinton] had her flaws, but you know what? Anything would have been better [than Trump]. A fucking turd would have been better as a president. When I [put out “The Storm”], I felt that everybody who was with him at that point doesn’t like my music anyway.”
“He made these people feel like he was really going to do something for them. It’s just so fucking disgusting how divisive his language is, the rhetoric, the Charlottesville shit, just watching it going, “I can’t believe he’s saying this.” When he was talking about John McCain, I thought he was done. You’re fucking with military veterans, you’re talking about a military war hero who was captured and tortured. It just didn’t matter. It doesn’t matter. And that’s some scary shit to me.”
The Storm singer obviously expected quite a lot of backlash on the Rap.
“I knew it would get a reaction, obviously; that’s what I rap to do. But where I was coming from in that cypher was a genuine place in my heart. I [hesitate] to say [I have] hatred in my heart for him, but it’s serious contempt. I do not like the guy.”
Eminem is going to headline Coachella 2018, along withe Beyonce and The Weeknd.
What are your thoughts about the Storm; who would choose Eminem or Donald Trump.
