Despite apparently winning the election and becoming president, huge and awesome US leader Donald Trump has his fair share of detractors.
The latest to join the fray has been rapper Eminem, who has just dropped a freestyle rap openly critical of the president at the BET Awards.
The song tells his fans to either choose him or choose Trump, while warning that The Donald was a “kamikaze” who was set to lead the United States into “a nuclear holocaust”.
Comparing him to another orange ball of impulses – The Thing from the Fantastic Four – Eminem raps “Racism’s the only thing he’s Fantastic Four / Cause that’s how he gets his f***ing rocks off and he’s orange.”
The rapper also references Trump’s latest battle with the NFL, or more specifically, the players who have protested during the playing of the national anthem.
Colin Kaepernick – who started the demonstrations by ‘taking a knee’ last year – thanked Eminem for the song’s reference to his ongoing protest on Twitter.

It’s not Eminem’s first criticism of Trump, although it’s probably the most pointed.
As with any anti-Trump sentiment, Eminem’s diss was not short of high-profile supporters, with a number of musicians and athletes backing him up on social media. Snoop Dogg, LeBron James, and P Diddy all tweeted their support of the new song.

No word yet from Trump, although considering the thinness of his orange skin and propensity for starting (or exacerbating) Twitter wars, we’re sure it’s not long until Eminem versus The Thing is the latest rap battle we’re set to witness.
