Detroit’s finest Eminem took on Donald Trump, and uncle Snoop Dogg was quick to react to the video that aired during the BET Hip Hop Awards 2017.
Eminem’s epic smackdown has the entire world sitting with their bowls of popcorn waiting for an answer from The Donald.
Spoiler — President Trump will not engage in mudslinging with Dr. Dre’s protégé because it is a lose-lose proposition for him.
The rapper, who is considered by most as the greatest alive, is too good of a lyricist for Trump’s error-prone tweets.
Eminem hails from Michigan — the state loves him — and Trump will not risk angering people from the purple state that helped him win the 2016 election.

In the cypher, Eminem left no stone unturned; he tackled every thorny political and social issue making headlines in the past week.
He spoke about the disaster in Puerto Rico, the KKK rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, the NFL athletes protesting, the so-called Muslim ban, the wall along the Mexican border, and even Trump’s usage of taxpayer money to fly to back and forth to Florida.
Here are some the rhymes Em spit: “We better give Obama props because what we got in office now’s a kamikaze that’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust / Trump when it comes to giving a s***, you’re as stingy as I am / You don’t got the nuts like an empty asylum / Racism’s the only thing he’s fantastic for, cause that’s how he gets his f***ing rocks off, and he’s orange.”
He added: “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.”
Fans and foes are having a real and somewhat nasty political debate after the clip aired.
A pro-Trump supporter said: “No matter what your beliefs. You should never speak like that about POTUS. Imagine if somebody said this about Obama. You know the outrage?”
An Eminem fan shared: “That was my highlight. I felt like I won a champion or something seeing you up there. PEACE KING”
A third commenter wrote: “What gun did Philando Castille try to steal? Who did Eric Garner assault? Hell, what crime did Terence Crutcher even commit (he was changing a flat tire)? I’ll wait. *Crickets* rkermaaniThis is everything. WE the people didn’t, the Donald who decide electoral votes did.”
This is not Eminem’s first rodeo, in 2016, he dropped a track titled “Campaign Speech” where he said Trump was mentally ill.
