Has Eminem found an answer to the cognitive dissonance that plagues Trump supporters? Has he figured out a way to cut through the brainwashing and fog that has them unable to think on their own and determine that Trump is not right for America? Time will tell because Eminem forced them to play their hand last night with his new open-form rap video that was first seen on the BET Hip Hop Awards last night. Eminem issued his fans an ultimatum – ME or Trump. You can catch the video below if you haven’t seen it yet.

Those retweets include the target of Trump’s NFL angst, Colin Kaepernick, who is also called out in the lyrics of the viral rap. Kaepernick’s message to Eminem was a simple one — “I appreciate you
Ken Klippenstein, journalist and self-described Salvadoran-American anchor baby, is looking forward to the spelling errors on Trump’s response, “Trump’s spelling of “Eminem” tomorrow is gonna be hilarious” and popped a Twitter poll up for anyone that wants to participate in the voting:

I think the world is eagerly awaiting Trump’s response. But at the same time I feel like no matter what he says it is going to disappoint us. Until then — FISTS UP for Colin!
