11 Punchlines from Eminem’s rap attack on US President, Donald Trump

In what is perhaps the fiercest and the most exhaustive attack against Donald Trump in hip-hop, Eminem “came to stomp” calling the President everything from “Donald the b—-” to a “racist grandpa” in an explosive 4.5-minute freestyle rap.

 

The Detroit rapper challenged his fans at the BET Hip Hop Awards to “decide who you like more” — Eminem or Trump. He has slammed the President previously in the nine-minute 2016 freestyle “Campaign Speech” and in Big Sean’s “No Favors.”

Here are the 11 most explosive lines from his newest anti-Trump freestyle in the order that they appear:

1) ‘A kamikaze that will probably cause a nuclear holocaust’

Here’s the full verse: “We better give Obama props ’cause what we got in office now is a kamikaze that will probably cause a nuclear holocaust while the drama pops, and he waits for s— to quiet down, he’ll just gas his plane up and fly around till the bombing stops.”

2) ‘Trump, when it comes to giving a s— you’re stingy as I am’

This line comes after Eminem references rising tensions in America.

3) ‘Racism’s the only thing he’s Fantastic 4 cause that’s how he gets his rock off, he’s orange’

4) ‘Cause he cannot withstand the fact we’re not afraid of Trump’

Here’s the full verse: “That’s why he wants us to disband cause he cannot withstand the fact we’re not afraid of Trump. Walking on egg shells, I came to stomp. That’s why he keeps screaming, ‘Drain the swamp,’ cause he’s in quicksand.”
Here, Eminem criticizes those who have been tepid when it comes to expressing their opposition to the President.

5) ‘All these horrible tragedies and he’s bored and would rather cause a Twitter storm’

“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.”

6) ‘Who’s going to pay for his extravagant trips’

Full verse: “He says he wants to lower our taxes, then who’s going to play for his extravagant trips back and forth with his fam to his golf resorts and his mansions?”
Last month Trump unveiled a Republican framework for tax reform that calls for sweeping tax cuts and a simplification of the tax code.

7) ‘Same shit that he tormented Hillary for and he slandered then does it more’

Full verse: “Same shit that he tormented Hillary for and he slandered then does it more. From his endorsement of Bannon, support for the Klansman, tiki torches in hand for the solider that’s black and comes home from Iraq and is still told to go back to Africa.”
Here, Eminem is referring to Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon, who is also the executive chairman of the conservative media outlet Breitbart News.

8) ‘This racist 94-year old grandpa’

This line comes before the rapper says Trump is ignoring America’s racist past.

9) ‘To him, you’re zero cause he don’t like his war heroes captured’

“He says you’re spitting in the face of vets who fought for us you b——-, Unless you’re a POW who’s tortured … cause to him you’re zero cause he don’t like his war heroes captured. That’s not disrespecting the military.”
Eminem accuses the President of disrespecting the military — a charge that Trump recently leveled against athletes who take a knee during the national anthem. In this lyric, he references Trump’s previous attacks on Arizona Sen. John McCain, who spent five years as a prisoner during the Vietnam War. In 2015, Trump questioned whether McCain is a war hero, saying, “I like people that weren’t captured, OK?”

10) ‘F— that, this is for Colin, ball up a fist and keep that s— balled like Donald the b—-‘

11) ‘The rest of America stand up. We love our military and we love our country but we f—— hate Trump’

Eminem’s latest attack is part of a larger trend in hip-hop, which turned on Trump in 2016 and largely settled for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, after nearly three decades of idolizing his wealth and power in hundreds of lyrics.
