You're really just setting yourself up for failure with nonsense like this.
For a good long while now, Eminem has been very outspoken about his disdain for our president, from the diss track he released in 2016 to his freestyle at October's BET Hip Hop Awards.
In the latter performance, he even spoke out against his fans who were also Trump supporters, saying that "any fan of mine who's a supporter of his, I'm drawing a line in the sand."
"You're either for or against, 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."
At this point, things got a little more visual -- he simply flipped off the camera, making it clear that he's not interested in sharing fans with Trump.
He continued his tirade on his new album, Revival, which contains several verses with similar themes.
And in a new interview with Billboard, he's lashing out yet again.
"I know I say a lot of f-cked-up sh-t," he says at one point. "But a lot of sh-t is said in jest, it's tongue-in-cheek, and it has always been that way through my whole career -- saying sh-t to get a reaction out of people."
"It's my artistic license to express myself."
However, he adds, "Last time I checked, Trump isn't an artist and doesn't have an artistic license. I'm not the f-ckin' president."
He makes a fair point.
Later he was asked what he was doing on election night -- he recalls that he was "watching the TV in f-cking disbelief," and that he was "on the phone back and forth with friends, like, 'He's going to f-cking win.'"
"I called it just from the rallies he was having when he first started running," he continues. "Because just watching the impact he has, they were fanatics."
"There is something to be said about the person who really felt like he might do something for them -- and he just f-cking duped everybody."
He says that he thinks Hillary Clinton "had her flaws," but that "anything would have been better" than Trump.
He actually says that "A f-cking turd would have been better as president."
We'll never truly know, of course, or at least we probably won't -- at this point, who really knows? -- but that sounds plausible, right?
"It's just so f-cking disgusting how divisive his language is, the rhetoric, the Charlottesville sh-t, just watching it, going 'I can't believe he's saying this,'" he says.
He also admits that after Trump's statement on John McCain, he thought he was "done," because "you're f-cking with military veterans, you're talking about a military war hero who was captured and tortured."
"It just didn't matter. It doesn't matter. And that's some scary sh-t to me."
Us too, pal.
Eminem even says that while he may not have "hatred in my heart for him," he does have "serious contempt."
"I do not like the guy."
As for his earlier remarks about not wanting to share fans with Trump, he says "At the end of the day, if I did lose half my fan base, then so be it, because I feel like I stood up for what was right and I'm on the right side of this."
"I don't see how somebody could be middle class, busting their ass every single day, paycheck to paycheck, who thinks that that f-cking billionaire is going to help you."
Do you think Eminem is being too political, or is he on point with all of this?
