Eminem slams Trump

Daily News - - FRONT PAGE -

EMINEM has un­leashed a pro­fane, lyri­cal tirade against Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump – say­ing he “came to stomp” and tak­ing aim at Trump’s Twit­ter habits, pol­icy, ap­pear­ance and sup­port­ers.

The rap­per un­veiled The Storm, a 4½-minute freestyle rap that aired as part of BET’s Hip Hop Awards on Tues­day night.

Eminem slammed the Re- pub­li­can pres­i­dent as “a kamikaze who will prob­a­bly cause a nu­clear holo­caust” be­fore crit­i­cis­ing Trump’s on­go­ing cam­paign against NFL na­tional an­them protests.

“But this is his form of dis­trac­tion, plus 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,” he rapped.

The 44-year-old rap­per later men­tioned NFL free agent quar­ter­back Colin Kaeper­nick, who’s cred­ited with launch­ing the an­them protests. Kaeper­nick told the rap­per on Twit­ter: “I ap­pre­ci­ate you.”

Eminem also took down Trump’s re­cently un­veiled plan for tax cuts, ques­tion­ing, “Then who’s go­ing to pay for his ex­trav­a­gant trips back and forth with his fam to his golf re­sorts and his man­sions?”

At one point he called Trump, who’s 71, a “racist 94-year-old grandpa” and com­pared the pres­i­dent’s ap­pear­ance to the Mar­vel Comics char­ac­ter “The Thing.”

The White House didn’t re­spond to a re­quest for com­ment on the video.
