Eminem angry Trump ‘not paying attention to me’
Rapper Eminem criticized President Trump again in a new interview published Tuesday, this time expressing his anger that Trump has yet to respond to an anti-Trump song the rapper performed at the 2017 BET awards.
In an interview with Shade 45, Eminem’s channel on Sirius XM radio, the rapper said that he “can’t stand” Trump and is furious that Trump has ignored the rapper’s viral video slamming the president and his supporters.
“I was and still am extremely angry,” Eminem told the hosts. “I can’t stand that motherf—er.”
He added that he expected to hear from Trump after the initial video was released in October at the BET awards. The track was Eminem’s second effort to criticize the president after his release of “Campaign Speech,” another diss track, last year.
“I feel like he’s not paying attention to me,” the Detroit rapper said Tuesday. “I was kind of waiting for him to say something and for some reason, he didn’t say anything.”
In the BET video, Eminem calls the president a “kamikaze that will probably cause a nuclear holocaust” and accused Trump of getting “his rocks off” on racism.
He also called out the president’s supporters in the track. Michigan, Eminem’s home state, voted for Trump over Hillary Clinton (D) by a margin of 47.3 percent to 47.0 in 2016.
“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: f— you,” Eminem rapped in October.
Trump does occasionally respond to high-profile critics.
