Eminem — aka Marshall “Notice Me Senpai” Mathers — is absolutely desperate to get Trump to respond to him, and said he doesn’t care if his anti-Trump obsession alienates half his audience in the process.

Eminem dished out a long tirade about Trump duping his voters into voting for him during his interview with Billboard Magazine. During his rant, he referred to Trump as a “f***ing turd,” and claimed that even Hillary Clinton would have been a better president than him.

“He made these people feel like he was really going to do something for them,” said Mathers. “It’s just so f***ing disgusting how divisive his language is, the rhetoric, the Charlottesville shit, just watching it going, “I can’t believe he’s saying this.””

This is from the same guy who wrote lyrics such as “b**ch I’ll punch Lana Del Rey right in the face twice, like Ray Rice in broad daylight in the plain sight of the elevator surveillance ’Til her head is banging on the railing, then celebrate with the Ravens.”

He also wrote the unforgettable “Don’t you get it b**ch, no one can hear you?/Now shut the f**k up and get what’s comin to you. You were supposed to love me {*Kim, his ex-wife choking*}/NOW BLEED! BI**H BLEED! BLEED! B**CH BLEED! BLEED!”

And who can forget the classic lyrics about raping Iggy Azalea with “Unless you’re Nicki grab you by the wrist let’s ski, so what’s it gon be put that s**t away Iggy, you don’t wanna blow that rape whistle on me. Scream! I love it. ‘Fore I get lost with the gettin’ off.””

But if the self-righteous Eminem, who threatens to rape women and beat them up in the music he makes, loses a chunk of his fan base in his quest to stick it to Donald Trump then so be it. At least, says Eminem, he will have “stood up for what is right.”

“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,” he said. “I don’t see how somebody could be middle class, busting their ass every single day, paycheck to paycheck, who thinks that that f***ing billionaire is gonna help you.”

Funny enough, the middle class is currently enjoying massive success at the hands of the GOP tax cuts, which continue inspire corporations to doll out the cash, expand and create new jobs, as well as implement helpful programs for the employees.

I could say that Eminem isn’t paying attention, but it’s hard not to notice all the success the middle class is having right now. There’s a new story about another business benefiting their employees and the American economy almost every day.

No. If you ask me, Eminem is just doing what he’s always done. He’s doing whatever it takes to get himself some attention, and currently, that involves getting Donald Trump to notice him. Trump is the number one focal point of the media, and has been ever since he jumped into the 2016 presidential elections. In the mind of Mathers, the most powerful man in the world responding to him would make him important. Someone who needs to be listened to. It would make him a leader in the resistance. A figurehead of the anti-Trump sentiment trending in the first world.

But Trump is ignoring him, if he’s even hearing about Mathers’ rants at all. Eminem is a relic from the early aughts who hasn’t really put out any good music for years. The only way he can get any media attention is if he lashes out against Trump. It works, sure, but it’s not bringing him back to the fame he once enjoyed.

Eminem’s brand is starving for attention, and Trump is keeping the feast away from the rapper. On one hand, it’s sad watching someone who had so much fame be reduced to scavenging for headlines by lazily railing against someone Hollywood loves to hate, but I don’t know many people who deserve it more.
