Em’s verse was an instant trending topic on social media and a who’s who of celebrities reacted to the hard hitting presidential slander.
The lyrics to the song, “The Storm,” slammed Trump as a “kamikaze that will probably cause a nuclear holocaust” and took on Trump supporters as well as the president for racism, immigration, and other topics:
“It’s like we take a step forwards then backwards
But this is his form of distraction
Plus he gets an enormous reaction
When he attacks the NFL so we focus on that and
Instead of talking Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada
All these horrible tragedies and he’s bored or would rather
Cause a Twitter storm with the Packers”
Eminem also made it clear that anyone who stands with Trump can’t stand with him.
“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,” he said before giving the camera a middle finger and declaring, “F*** you.”
