President Trump took time out to diss rap mogul JAY-Z during his political rally in Nashville, Tennessee on Tuesday. JAY-Z fans slammed the president for mocking a black man on the same day that Starbucks closed 8,000 stores to conduct racial sensitivity training.
The 71-year-old former reality TV star ripped into JAY-Z for using “filthy” language at a campaign rally/concert for Hillary Clinton in 2016.
“His language was so filthy, that it made me… the most clean-cut human being on earth,” Trump said as the capacity crowd applauded.
Trump also took a dig at Clinton’s crowd size which diminished sharply after JAY-Z and his wife, Beyonce left the arena that same night.
The president also defended his use of the word “animals” to describe the violent MS-13 street gang, whose members he is deporting by the thousands after the Obama administration spread them throughout the United States in 2016.
“They’re not human beings. They’re not human beings,” Trump said. “And this is why we call the blood-thirsty MS-13 gang members exactly the name I used last week.
“What was the name?” Trump asked.
“ANIMALS,” the crowd responded.
