“Donald the bitch” and “racist grandpa” are just a couple of phrases from the barrage of slanderous lyrics Eminem has unleashed on President Donald Trump in his freestyle called “The Storm” shot at a Detroit car park.
The incendiary video was aired during Tuesday night’s BET Hip-Hop Awards held at the Jackie Gleason Theater in Miami, FL.
As of now, requests to the White House for comment have not been returned.
It’s not the first time the hit rapper has pummelled the president; the 2016 nine-minute freestyle “Campaign Speech” immediately comes to mind.
However, this time around, he has taken the attack to a different level – it’s vicious, it’s profane, and it is direct.
As much as you may agree with the Detroit rapper, it still hits you hard! Makes you wonder how Trump took it!
Well, if we know Trump, it won’t be long before we have something more to write about!
Meanwhile, here are some reactions from celebrities praising Eminem’s “The Strom”.
2017, where Kaepernick’s greatest work came without taking the field and Eminem’s greatest work came without using a beat.

The rapper is upset with Trump’s comments in the wake of the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville; he questions the President’s “extravagant trips back and forth with his fam to his golf resorts and his mansions?” with an ample dose of profanities thrown in among other insults.
Eminem pays glowing tribute to former NFL player Colin Kaepernick in the closing.
The San Francisco 49ers quarterback responded in kind with an “I appreciate you @Eminem” tweet.
Kaepernick is more a household name now than he was in playing days, it would appear after he refused to stand for the national anthem at a game in protest against police brutality against African Americans. “There are bodies in the street,” he said.
The rapper had supported Kaepernick in his earlier freestyle “Campaign Speech” as well.

“Whether or not you agree with Eminem on the issues, his diagnosis of Trump as a sort of master of distraction I think is pretty spot on,” Political Commentator David Swerdlick told CNN, adding that the president has actually invited “this kind of backlash from a pop star who’s got a lot of credibility with a lot of people.”
“I think that he’s absolutely speaking for the players in this instance, where the players have various feelings, from feeling, you know, insulted to feeling empowered because of everything that Trump has done in the past couple of weeks,” CEO of EAG Sports Management Denise White also told CNN. “It was an amazing thing that he did….it’s a positive and, moving forward, voice that I feel that he’s empowering the athletes as well.”
“He did it in his very Eminem way! I’m not surprised, it was interesting, and I’m sure it will be the talk of the town for a while,” Washington Examiner reporter Salena Zito said on the same CNN program.
Now, the world awaits, with bated breath, Trump’s imminent counterattack!
