Eminem Is Upset Trump Didn’t Respond To His Corny Rap

I actually thought this was parody until I saw it was in Newsweek…

“I was and still am extremely angry,” Eminem said on his XM radio station. “I can’t stand that motherf**ker. I feel like he’s not paying attention to me. I was kind of waiting for him to say something and for some reason, he didn’t say anything.”

Imagine a guy being so un-self aware that he does a corny-ass freestyle rap wherein he chides the President for tweeting, then complains that he isn’t tweeting in response to some rapper doing said corny-ass rap.

Then again, high levels of intelligence aren’t usually associated with the music industry anyway.

Richard Spencer Raked For Dissing Football

Last week, Richard Spencer, America’s most media-hungry white nationalist, gave a speech at Auburn University, which is best known for producing Tim Cook, of Apple; Octavia Spencer, of this year’s Academy Award nominees; and a whole lot of rabid football fans. Auburn is in Alabama, where college-football Saturdays are considerably holier than churchgoing Sundays, so it was odd when Spencer veered from his usual talking points about the perils of diversity to end his remarks by condemning the university pastime. “If I could wave a magic wand, I would absolutely ban football,” Spencer told the crowd, which, as you might imagine, booed. Spencer said that sports “can be a wonderful thing,” adding that “they are something deeply Western, something that you can read about in Homer,” while neglecting to add that you can also read about them in the Epic of Gilgamesh. Spencer went on to make the reasonable point that sports fans are “covering up some hole in ourselves” by devoting so much of their emotional energy to a team they are not a part of, playing a game that ultimately doesn’t matter; but he said the issue was not a waste of time or resources, but rather that cheering for a sports team put people in a position of “rooting on people that you have no connection to.” Translation: Sports are bad because they make white sports fans interact with, and perhaps even think fondly of, black athletes.

Well that’s an interesting take, especially from a magazine that utterly ignored Meryl Streep criticizing football and MMA as beneath her, both of which are predominantly participated in by minorities.

But hey.  That doesn’t fit the narrative.

Celebrities Who Said They’d Leave, But Haven’t Yet

  • Bryan Cranston said he’d move to Canada, the most popular destination—and also far above the United States in the latest economic-freedom rankings.
  • Raven-Symoné—whom I only knew as a Cosby kid but apparently now is some sort of impresario—said she’d move to Canada, indeed already had a ticket, “if any Republican gets nominated [did she mean elected?].”
  • Neve Campbell, who’s already Canadian, would return to her (and my) home province of Ontario.
  • Chloë Sevigny likewise had a particular Canadian province in mind, Nova Scotia.
  • Lena Dunham was even more specific, pointing to Vancouver as her choice. “I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will.” I can’t confirm reports that Dunham is being sued for not doing so by the not-insignificant number of people who voted for Trump on this basis alone.
  • Barbra Streisand was picking between Canada and Australia (which is also freer than America).
  • Chelsea Handler has a house in Spain already, and threatened to move there permanently.
  • Amy Schumer also promised to move to Spain “or somewhere.”
  • George Lopez said he’d go back to Mexico.
  • Samuel L. Jackson had perhaps the most original choice: South Africa.
  • Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg—a celebrity in my circles—joked about moving to New Zealand in a New York Times interview that may yet get her into more trouble.
  • Billy Crystal had the same Kiwi idea.
  • Miley Cyrus, Al Sharpton, and Whoopi Goldberg would exile themselves to someunspecified country.
  • Spike Lee, perhaps misunderstanding the concept of leaving the country, said he’d move to the “Republic of Brooklyn.”
  • Cher, apparently feeling that the Earth was too small for her to share with a President Trump, promised to move to Jupiter—where she’d possibly be joined by
  • Jon Stewart, who “would consider getting in a rocket and going to another planet, because clearly this planet’s gone bonkers.”
