(Newser) – Tell us how you really feel, Marshall. Eminem delivered a scathing freestyle rap against President Trump that aired during Tuesday night's BET Hip Hop Awards, reports Time. You can watch the video here, but it comes with the obvious warning on language. In fact, the video was both profane and policy-oriented, referring to "Donald the b----" and "racist Grandpa," but also to taxes: "He says he wants to lower our taxes, then who's going to pay for his extravagant trips," Eminem rapped, per CNN. At another point, he challenged his own fan base: "And any fan of mine who's a supporter of his, I'm drawing in the sand a line, You're either for or against."

In the four-and-a-half minute clip, Eminem hits on all kinds of topics, including Trump's Twitter war with the NFL, per NBC News. "All of these horrible tragedies and he's bored and would rather cause a Twitter storm with the Packers," he rapped. Eminem also raised a fist in salute to Colin Kaepernick for the one-time QB's national anthem protests, and Kaepernick tweeted, "I appreciate you @Eminem," adding a raised fist icon of his own. Another line: "We better give Obama props, cuz what we got in the White House now is a kamikaze that’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust," he rapped. The final line: "The rest of America stand up/We love our military and we love our country but we f---ing hate Trump."
