Mac Miller Ethers Donald Trump on ‘The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore’
The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore is sort of turning into rappers talking about presidential candidates and that's a show we'd happily watch. A day after 2 Chainz explained Ben Carson's campaign suspension, Mac Miller appeared on the show to offer some potent takedowns to Donald Trump, whom he's feuded with in the past over his 2011 song named after the businessman turned presidential hopeful.
"You see, you’re lowering the bar for our nation’s intelligence," Miller says in the clip. "Your only goal is to stay in the spotlight no matter how much it fuels the fire of hate groups that you apparently know nothing about like the KKK and neo-Nazis. You have people at your rallies who openly assault black teenage girls because hey, that’s American. The messed up thing is, I don’t really know if you’re evil. I think you're just such an egomaniacal attention-thirsty psychopathic power-hungry delusional waste of skin and bones that you’ll do, say or allow anything if it means you’ll just get one more minute in the limelight."
Miller then says that if Trump is elected, he isn't running for the border but rather, "I’ma be here everyday telling the world how much I hate you. How much of a clown you are and how much we as a nation are better than you will ever be as a racist fuckwad of a human because I love America and I’m never giving it up to a troll like you."
It was a definitive gesture and statement for Miller who has at times seen attempts at social discussion get out of hand. It is nonetheless good to see Mac well after the rapper had to postpone shows in late December due to exhaustion. Catch his Trump screed up top.
