Eminem unleashes on Trump

Associated Press

Eminem has unleashed a profane lyrical tirade against President Donald Trump – saying he “came to stomp” and taking aim at Trump's Twitter habits, policy, appearance and supporters.

The rapper on Tuesday unveiled “The Storm,” a 41/2-minute freestyle rap video recorded Friday in a Detroit parking garage that aired as part of BET's Hip Hop Awards on Tuesday night.

Eminem slammed the Republican president as “a kamikaze who will probably cause a nuclear holocaust” before criticizing Trump's ongoing campaign against NFL national anthem protests.

“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,” he rapped.

Schedule issue cited

The couple behind HGTV's “Fixer Upper” is opening up about the reasons for ending the show after its fifth season, which premieres next month.

In an interview with People magazine, Chip and Joanna Gaines cite a grueling 11-month production schedule as a reason for the show's end. Chip Gaines says the show was demanding time from him that he needed to be giving to the couple's businesses, relationship and family.

Joanna Gaines isn't ruling out the possibility of a return to TV, saying “you just never know.”

The Gaineses also addressed rumors of marital problems. The two say they have a solid marriage that Chip describes as in “a really good place.”
