Eminem held little back in a freestyle that aired during the BET Hip Hop Awards on Tuesday, criticizing President Donald Trump and giving a shout out to Colin Kapernick.
The 44-year-old rapper blasted the president for his beef with the NFL instead of talking about important issues in the world, like his response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and the mass shooting in Las Vegas.
Plus, (Trump) gets an enormous reaction when he attacks the NFL, so we focus on that. Instead of talking Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada. All these horrible tragedies and he’s bored and would rather. Cause a Twitter storm with the Packers

Kapernick chimed in to the freestyle during the show, tweeting that he appreciates Eminem for speaking up in such a powerful way.
Since Trump’s taken office, Eminem has seldom commented on the Commander in Chief. When he has, though, he has been critical.
In a Big Sean song released in February called “No Favors,” Eminem called Trump a “b***h” and rips on Republican commentor Ann Coulter. Trump didn’t respond to the reference in the song, but Coulter called the Detroit native an “idiot” in an interview with TMZ.
Well, I think it’s unfortunate that the left, from Berkeley to Eminem with his rap songs, has normalized violence against women, as Eminem has done. He talks about f’ing women with an umbrella until the ‘bleep’ comes out. This goes on for years. He denounces gays using ugly terms. His homophobia and his misogyny is quite well known.
It’s one thing and just you know some idiot who’s — by the way — no longer a kid, but now we’re seeing it play out with professors at Berkeley and the head of the Berkeley police. It’s just become quite normal for the left to behave in these violent ways toward women and gays.
