Eminem is still angry that President Donald Trump has not reacted to a viral rap video he produced earlier this month ranting and raving about the evils of the Trump administration.
“[Trump] makes my blood boil,” Eminem said in a wide-ranging interview Monday about politics and race. “I can’t even watch the news anymore because it makes me too stressed out. All jokes aside, all punch lines aside, I’m trying to get a message out there about him.”
Eminem, whose newly released album discusses the U.S. in the age of Trump, also argued that he has a litany of lines prepared if the president ever does respond to the 45-year-old rapper’s tweets.
“I’m not going to give any away now, but I’ve got lines ready if he says something about me,” Eminem said, adding that he gets “flustered” and stressed out whenever Trump’s name gets brought up in conversation or in the media.
“At what point do you—a working-class citizen, someone who’s trying to make shit better for you and your family—think this guy who’s never known struggle his entire fucking life, who avoided the military because of bone spurs, who says he’s a billionaire, is really looking out for you? He’s got people brainwashed,” Eminem said.
Eminem has repeatedly tried to get Trump to react to the rapper’s five-minute freestyle rap at the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards in October. In a Dec. 7 interview with Elton John, for instance, Eminem continued his criticism of the president
Eminem also said during a radio interview in November that he was disappointed Trump hadn’t responded to his video. “I feel like he’s not paying attention to me … I was kind of waiting for him to say something, and for some reason, he didn’t say anything,” he claimed.
