Eminem made waves in October with his blistering freestyle rap about Donald Trump during the BET Hip Hop Awards.
The Detroit rapper made it no secret how he felt about the President of the United States, cursing at any of his fans who voted for Trump in last year’s election.
So you can imagine that, when asked by New York Magazine about Trump in an interview published this week, Eminem yet again didn’t hold back.
“He makes my blood boil,” Eminem said. “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. I want our country to be great too, I want it to be the best it can be, but it’s not going to be that with him in charge.
“I remember when he was first sniffing around politics, I thought, ‘We’ve tried everything else, why not him?’ Then — and I was watching it live — he had that speech where he said Mexico is sending us rapists and criminals. I got this feeling of what the (expletive)? From that point on, I knew it was going to be bad with him. What he’s doing putting people against each other is scary (expletive). His election was such a disappointment to me about the state of the country.”
Eminem just dropped a new album, “Revival,” last week. He had more words for Trump on several tracks and has said he hopes for Trump to “answer” him.
“There’s nothing I’m saying about him on Revival that he doesn’t already know about himself,” Eminem said. “It’s more that I want him to answer me because I got ideas for all kinds of (expletive) to say back to him if he does.”
When asked about how he hopes the Trump presidency will play out in 2018, Eminem said: “I hope he gets impeached. I’d be there for that.”
