Watch: Eminem spits fire in this savage freestyle rap that takes down Donald Trump

‘That’s an awfully hot coffee pot, should I drop it on Donald Trump?’ Think you just did, Marshall.

Eminem is back (though he never really left) and this time, he has brought The Storm, his freestyle rap dissing everything about United States President Donald Trump. The video (above) was broadcast during the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards. In the true Real Slim Shady style, Eminem attacked – with his usual masterful flair for lyrical synchronicity – everything and everyone that he considers wrong with Trump and his administration.

He begins by referring to Trump’s odd “calm before the storm” statement, after which he proceeds to tear apart, inch-by-inch, Trump’s presidency. Eminem also takes down Trump’s Twitter rants, his feud with Senator John McCain, Colin Kaepernick and his proposed “wall” on the Mexico border. He ends his relentless cascade with a very simple message for his own fans who support Trump and his Presidency: “F*ck you.”

Here are some tidbits from Eminem’s lyrical diatribe.

“But we better give Obama props
’Cause what we’ve got in office now’s
A kamikaze that’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust”

“It’s like we take a step forwards, then backwards
But this is his form of distraction
Plus, he gets an enormous reaction
When he attacks the NFL so we focus on that
Instead of talking Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada
All these horrible tragedies and he’s bored and would rather
Cause a Twitter storm with the Packers
Then says he wants to lower our taxes
Then who’s gonna pay for his extravagant trips”

“Back and forth with his fam to his golf resorts and his mansions?
Same sh*t that he tormented Hillary for and he slandered
Then does it more
From his endorsement of Bannon
Support from the Klansmen
Tiki torches in hand for the soldier that’s black
And comes home from Iraq
And is still told to go back to Africa”

“And any fan of mine who is a supporter of his
I’m drawing in the sand a line
you’re either for or against
and if you can’t decide
who you like more and you’re split
on who you should stand beside,
I’ll do it for you, with this: F*ck you”

Bringing your parents into the digital fold can be a rewarding experience

Contrary to popular sentiment, being the tech support for your parents might be a great use of your time and theirs.

If you look up ‘Parents vs technology’, you’ll be showered with a barrage of hilariously adorable and relatable memes. Half the hilarity of these memes sprouts from their familiarity as most of us have found ourselves in similar troubleshooting situations. Helping a parent understand and operate technology can be trying. However, as you sit, exasperated, deleting the gazillion empty folders that your mum has accidentally made, you might be losing out on an opportunity to enrich her life.

After the advent of technology in our everyday personal and work lives, parents have tried to embrace the brand-new ways to work and communicate with a bit of help from us, the digital natives. And while they successfully send Whatsapp messages and make video calls, a tremendous amount of unfulfilled potential has fallen through the presumptuous gap that lies between their ambition and our understanding of their technological needs.

When Priyanka Gothi’s mother retired after 35 years of being a teacher, Priyanka decided to create a first of its kind marketplace that would leverage the experience and potential of retirees by providing them with flexible job opportunities. Her Hong Kong based novel venture, Retired, Not Out is reimagining retirement by creating a channel through which the senior generation can continue to contribute to the society.

Our belief is that tech is highly learnable. And learning doesn’t stop when you graduate from school. That is why we have designed specific programmes for seniors to embrace technology to aid their personal and professional goals.

— Priyanka Gothi, Founder & CEO, Retired Not Out

Ideas like Retired Not Out promote inclusiveness and help instil confidence in a generation that has not grown up with technology. A positive change in our parent’s lives can be created if we flip the perspective on the time spent helping them operate a laptop and view it as an exercise in empowerment. For instance, by becoming proficient in Microsoft Excel, a senior with 25 years of experience in finance, could continue to work part time as a Finance Manager. Similarly, parents can run consultation blogs or augment their hobbies and continue to lead a fulfilling and meaningful life.

Advocating the same message, Lenovo’s new web-film captures the void that retirement creates in a person’s life, one that can be filled by, as Lenovo puts it, gifting them a future.

Depending on the role technology plays, it can either leave the senior generation behind or it can enable them to lead an ambitious and productive life. This festive season, give this a thought as you spend time with family.
