Everyone likes being validated. Even if it’s to make sure that the president of the United States knows how much you hate him by spitting the angriest anti-Trump rhymes in a now-viral video.
In a November interview with Shade 45, Eminem‘s channel on Sirius XM radio, the rapper touched on his viral BET Hip Hop Awards freestyle cypher, and he expressed disappointment that President Donald Trump had yet to respond.
“I was and still am extremely angry, and I can’t stand that motherfucker, and I feel like he’s not paying attention to me. And I was kind of waiting for him to say something … and for some reason, he didn’t say anything,” Eminem said. “To be continued.”
The rapper’s freestyle, titled “The Storm,” took shots at Trump for validating Steve Bannon, for demonizing Colin Kaepernick, for criticizing Hillary Clinton‘s behavior before exhibiting that same behavior as president, and for mishandling Hurricane Maria’s destruction upon Puerto Rico.
At the end of his rap, Eminem drew “in the sand a line” for fans who were supporters of Trump, and if they couldn’t choose, the rapper said he’d make a choice for them—with a middle finger and a “fuck you.”
For someone who hates Trump’s guts and how he spends his time on Twitter, it seems a little ironic that Eminem now wants his attention, when that too could be perceived as a distraction from his duties as president. Perhaps Eminem might get lucky with another diss track—after all, third time’s the charm.
