Eminem is back, and he’s mad. A nearly five-minute long video of a freestyle performed by Eminem in a parking garage in Detroit was aired during the 2017 BET Hip-Hop Awards last night. The subject of which is the petulant orange nuisance in the White House throwing Twitter tantrums.
Eminem went in harder than Kim Mathers with a lip liner pencil. He calls Trump out on his frequent private jet trips and golf games, and general rich asshole antics. Eminem also accuses Trump of distracting people from Puerto Rico and the Las Vegas attack by picking a Twitter fight with protesting NFL players. And Eminem wasn’t very subtle in saying that Trump is a racist. He ended his verse by issuing a strong “fuck you” to any fence-sitting Eminem fans out there who might be unsure which side they should be on.

The lyrics can be read in their entirety here.
While all of us heard Eminem’s message, I’m not entirely sure Trump will get it. Despite the fact that Eminem spoke slower than usual, his sophisticated word play and clever metaphors will most likely sail right over Trump’s head. We’ll only know for sure how much of the message Trump was able to Trump comprehend when he inevitably tweets about how much he hated it. “M&Ms taste like garbage, and now they sound like it too. SAD! Although I will say that the green one is a very attractive candy. Honey, if you want to trade brown for orange, my door is always open.”
