To be clear, you’re not owed notice from the president.
Believe me, if Trump was going after everybody that has slammed him in the media, I’m about 6 months overdue for a shout out.
Now, let’s talk about a 45-year old man still dressing like a street kid and rapping about a hard life that he hasn’t had to experience for many years, now.
The rapper, Eminem…aka… Marshall Mathers, recently appeared on his SiriusXM channel, Shade 45, and whined about President Trump not paying attention to an anti-Trump tune he cranked out for the 2017 BET awards program.
I don’t know if this is Mathers feeling his relevance quickly fading, or if he’s genuinely so unaware that he can’t understand why Trump hasn’t acknowledged his efforts.
“I was and still am extremely angry,” Eminem told the hosts. “I can’t stand that motherf—er.”
He added that he expected to hear from Trump after the initial video was released in October at the BET awards. The track was Eminem’s second effort to criticize the president after his release of “Campaign Speech,” another diss track, last year.
“I feel like he’s not paying attention to me,” the Detroit rapper said Tuesday. “I was kind of waiting for him to say something and for some reason, he didn’t say anything.”
Given that Trump rarely lets an opportunity go to attack his critics, Mathers can just about bank on Trump knowing nothing about his attempts at stirring controversy.
In the BET performance, he hit all the key components – Trump the racist, Trump is going to cause a nuclear holocaust – and he may be correct, but that doesn’t mean Trump will respond.
C’mon… Does anybody believe Trump watches the BET awards?
If Mathers is that desperate to be noticed, he’s going to have to get a spot on Fox News or rent a few billboards in Manhattan.
Mathers also took a shot at fans he has who might also be supporters of Trump.
“Any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his, I’m drawing in the sand a line — 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: f— you,” Eminem rapped in October.
I could actually see there being a few Eminem/Trump supporters, as they both cater to the lowest common denominators in society.
Hang in there, Mathers. You may get your name in a 4am Twitter rant, yet.
