Following the final presidential debate, rapper Eminem released what he described as an album teaser called ”Campaign Speech.”
The Detroit rapper who never shies away from controversy took aim at Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and his supporters.
”Consider me a dangerous man/ But you should be afraid of this dang candidate/ You say Trump don’t kiss ass like a puppet?/ ‘Cause he runs his campaign with his own cash for the funding?/ And that’s what you wanted?/ A [email protected]’ loose cannon who’s blunt with his hand on the button/ Who doesn’t have to answer to no one?/ Great idea!”
Eminem unleashed a diatribe of rhythmic gymnastics which lovers of his music have gotten accustom to while referencing Trayvon Martin, Colin Kaepernick and David Hasselhoff.
Taking about Trump supporters, Eminem said “Run the faucet / I’m a dunk a bunch of Trump supporters underwater,” he flows. “Snuck up on ’em in Ray-Bans in a gray van with a spray tan.”
One notable reaction the eight-minute track has gotten is from the former Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan – a white supremacy group – David Duke, a Donald Trump supporter.

The Louisiana senate candidate weighed in on the song while using a set of three parentheses, an anti-Semitic marker on the Internet meant to identify a Jewish person.
The final presidential debate was widely seen as a draw between the two candidates until Donald Trump failed to commit to honoring the election outcome.
Over the past few weeks, Trump has been calling foul on the forthcoming elections saying it was rigged against him by the establishment and Clinton. The debate moderator posed the question to which he answered ”I will keep you in suspense.”
Mrs Clinton reacted by noting that Trump was a chronic complainer saying his answer was ”horrifying” and that he was ”talking down our democracy.”
Immigration, Russia, abortion/ planned parenthood, were all topics on the night as America took a final look at their two major options for president as they go head to head.
