“There is something to be said about the person who really felt like he might do something for them — and he just f--king duped everybody,” Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, told Billboard magazine of Trump, in a story published Thursday. 

The “Walk on Water” rapper says he anticipated Trump’s 2016 White House win, calling the real estate mogul’s supporters “fanatics,” while railing against the GOP nominee. 


“I know that Hillary had her flaws, but you know what? Anything would have been better [than Trump]. A f--king turd would have been better as a president,” Eminem, 45, said.

“He made these people feel like he was really going to do something for them,” Eminem told the magazine. “It's just so f--king disgusting how divisive his language is, the rhetoric, the Charlottesville shit, just watching it going, ‘I can't believe he's saying this.’”

When asked if he had concerns about alienating some of his fan base with his anti-Trump music and remarks, Eminem replied, “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 f--king billionaire is gonna help you,” he added.

It’s not the first time the Grammy Award winner — known for his often-controversial lyrics — has slammed Trump. The performer made headlines last year for a scathing anti-Trump freestyle rap during the BET Hip Hop Awards in which he said the president was a “kamikaze that will probably cause a nuclear holocaust.”

In an interview last November, Eminem said when it comes to Trump, "I can’t stand that motherf--ker."
