To be honest, I assume Fox News doesn’t cover the BET Awards, and so Trump won’t hear about Eminem, at least in time for his morning tweet-tantrum. But the Media Village Idiot courtiers (helloooo, Mr. Cillizza) who dance attendance on Lord Smallgloves have heard, and it’s gonna make them that little bit more uncertain about him. Kidz, these days! Who knows when they’ll turn on you? Anybody got Rex Tillerson’s booker’s number?…
Monique Judge, at the Grapevine:
… On Tuesday night’s presentation of the BET Hip Hop Awards, a pre-recorded video from Oct. 6 showed Em flowing for four-and-a-half minutes on the dangers of the Trump presidency made everyone stand at attention…
Em threw the gauntlet down and told everyone to put their fists in the air and keep them there. He called out the shenanigans of Trump warring with the NFL over player protests. He told everyone that Trump is going to “lead us into a nuclear holocaust” and then “fly around in his plane until the bombs stop.”
“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 and gun reform for Nevada. All these horrible tragedies, and he’s bored and would rather cause a Twitter storm with the Packers,” Em seamlessly flowed acapella.
He called your president everything but a child of God, and it was magnificent…
Apart from being grateful that The Youngs are willing to take some of the weight, what’s on the agenda for the day?
Also I see some folks seemingly angry at the attention this freestyle is getting saying it’s only cuz Eminem is white.
THATS EXACTLY WHY.

My cousins went to the same HS as Eminem, my grandparents lived in the same working class neighborhood.
Kid Rock grew up in a mansion.

(For those who don’t pay even a little attention to Michigan politics, there was some silly-season enthusiasm about car-dealer’s kid Robert ‘Kid Rock’ Richie running for Debbie Stabenow’s seat, before the enthusiasts realized it was all a publicity stunt for RR’s arena tour. Kid Rock will challenge Stabenow right after Curt Shilling successfully challenges Elizabeth Warren, and that will happen on the twelfth of Never.)
