Eminem says a 'f**king turd' would be a better President than Trump

'It’s just so f*cking disgusting how divisive his language is, the rhetoric, the Charlottesville sh*t'

Eminem tears into Trump in freestyle rap: "Racism's the only thing that he's good for"

Eminem has once more expressed his dismay at the US’ current choice of president.

The rapper’s disdain, of course, was already well known from his BET freestyle; titled “The Storm”, the four-minute freestyle rap sees him declare, “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/And if you can’t decide who you like more and you’re split on who you should stand beside/I’ll do it for you with this. F*ck you.”

He’d also previously discussed how Trump has “people brainwashed” with his tactics, but has now spoken to Billboard about he foresaw his win in the 2016 election, when he was, “watching the TV in f*cking disbelief. I was in my basement, on the phone back and forth with friends like, ‘He’s going to f*cking win.’”

A major upset he’d predicted as early as Trump’s first rallies. “Because just watching the impact he has, they were fanatics,” he said. “There is something to be said about the person who really felt like he might do something for them – and he just f*cking duped everybody.”

“I know that Hillary [Clinton] had her flaws, but you know what? Anything would have been better [than Trump]. A f*cking turd would have been better as a president.”

“He made these people feel like he was really going to do something for them,” he continued. “It’s just so f*cking disgusting how divisive his language is, the rhetoric, the Charlottesville sh*t, just watching it going, ‘I can’t believe he’s saying this.’”

“When he was talking about John McCain, I thought he was done. You’re f*cking with military veterans, you’re talking about a military war hero who was captured and tortured. It just didn’t matter. It doesn’t matter. And that’s some scary sh*t to me.”

He added that he was actually surprised that his rejection of any Trump-supporting part of his fanbase caused such a stir, explaining: “When I [put out “The Storm”], I felt that everybody who was with him at that point doesn’t like my music anyway. I get the comparison with the non-political-correctness, but other than that, we’re polar opposites.”
