Eminem Interviewed by Secret Service Over ‘Threatening’ Trump Lyrics
Eminem was visited by Secret Service agents over his lyrics against President Trump.
According to documents obtained by BuzzFeed News ( The Hill), the Secret Service interviewed the rapper about “threatening” lyrics on his Revival album.
“Time to bury him, so tell him to prepare to get impeached,” raps Em on “Like Home,” which the Secret Service deemed “inappropriate” and a threat to the president.
Eminem also took aim at Trump’s family including daughter Ivanka on “Framed.” “Donald Duck’s on as the Tonka Truck in the yard / But dog how the f**k is Ivanka Trump in the trunk of my car?” he raps. “Gotta get to the bottom of it to try to solve it / Must go above and beyond, ’cause it’s incumbent upon / Me, ’cause I feel somewhat responsible for the dumb little blonde girl / That motherf**kin’ baton twirler that got dumped in the pond.”
The Secret Service noted that it was “not the first time” Marshall Mathers had threatened the Trump family, citing his 2017 BET Hip-Hop Awards cypher.
“This is not the first time MATHERS made threatening comments towards POTUS and his family,” they wrote. “In June 2017, MATHERS freestyled comments that were threatening in nature towards POTUS.”
The Secret Service was tipped off by a “concerned citizen,” who turned out to be a TMZ reporter reaching out for comment on Em’s lyrics. “A concerned citizen reported Marshall Mathers the rapper ‘Eminem’ had a new song called ‘Framed’ with an inappropriate comment towards President Donald Trump and a threatening comment towards Ivanka Trump,” says the report.
On “The Ringer” off his 2018 album Kamikaze, Eminem claimed that he met with Secret Service agents. “Cause Agent Orange just sent the Secret Service / To meet in-person to see if I really think of hurtin’ him,” he rapped. “Or ask if I’m linked to terrorists / I said, ‘Only when it comes to ink and lyricists.’”
