Rap artist Eminem has fully included himself in the collection of celebrities that are taking a very public stand against President Trump in spite of their roles as entertainers. But after creating an anti-Trump album, the recording artist was “extremely upset” that the president hadn’t responded to him.
Obviously spoiling for a fight, the 45-year-old rapper railed against Trump in his latest album “Revival.” But reviewer after reviewer tore it to shreds, despite their appreciation of his Trump-bashing. The New York Times suggested his new songs are as much a has-been as he is. The Guardian called the album a “trainwreck.”
In one song, according to Fox News, Eminem — his real name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III — told his fans that they could either support Trump or they could support him.
The recording artist thought for sure he’d get blasted by the president himself on Twitter. Perhaps he was hoping for some free press for his failed album.
But when Trump failed to respond in November, Eminem told music channel Shade 45 that "I was and still am extremely angry. 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.”
Eminem has since accused the president of brainwashing his supporters and said he “makes my blood boil.” But it appears that Trump, who gets attacked by celebrities every other moment, has failed to care about this particular one. His son, Donald Trump Jr., though, has finally decided to respond.
Fox News contributor Stephen Miller wrote on Twitter, “Trump not responding to Eminem is the funniest thing of his presidency. EM thought he had him & it’s driving him insane that he didn’t even tweet about it.”
In response, Trump Jr. wrote, “It’s a bit odd that he’s admitting to having prepared heavily to take on a 70 year old politician. Probably not the best look. So much for freestyle. #WillTheRealLoserPleaseStandUp”
