Eminem did not mince words when he went after President Donald Trump in a freestyle rap broadcasted during the BET Hip-Hop Awards.
Deemed "The Storm" by the Grammy-winning rapper, the cypher performance clocked in at nearly five minutes, in which Eminem attacked Trump for his response to Charlottesville and his focus on NFL protestors.
"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 about Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada/ All of these horrible tragedies and he's bored and would rather cause a Twitter storm with the Packers," he rapped.
Eminem also took aim at his Trump-supporting fans in the video, filmed Friday in his hometown of Detroit.
"And any fan of mine who's a supporter of his/ I'm drawing in the sand a line/ You're either for or against," he continued. "And if you can't decide who you like more in your split/ On who you should stand beside/ I'll do it for you with this/ F-- you."
The rapper concluded by raising a fist in the air -- which he said was for Colin Kaepernick, who set off the NFL controversy back in 2016 -- and said,"The rest of America stand up. We love our military and we love our country, but we f--ing hate Trump."
