He forgot to mention that the president won the rapper’s beloved home state of Michigan. Also, the president has appeared in promotions for Eminem.

Marshall Mathers, aka Eminem, went after President Trump in a rap broadcast during the BET Hip Hop Awards on Tuesday night.
In a profanity-laced rant, the rapper hit the president for racism, his Twitter fights, and his support from Steve Bannon and white supremacists.
Mathers then voiced support for fellow washed-up star Colin Kaepernick, raising his fist in the air in solidarity with the quarterback’s protests.
Eminem ends his video by mocking Trump supporters, and he tells his fans who support the president, “F**k you.”
What Mathers didn’t mention, however, was that his beloved home state of Michigan was one of the states that put Trump in the White House over Hillary Clinton. Part of the fabled “blue wall” for years, the state finally went Republican and helped deliver the 2016 election to Trump.
Eminem also skipped over the time that he and Trump appeared at a mock political convention for Eminem’s alter ego, Slim Shady:
