Eminem Compares Donald Trump To A Parrot In 'Revival' Song 'Like Home'

For those who thought that Eminem might let up on his verbal assault on Donald Trump, it looks like Slim Shady's not going to change his mind on the 45th President of the United States any time soon.

Back in October Em set the world alight with a blistering freestyle rap against Trump in a parking lot, filmed especially for the BET Hiphop Awards in October.

In the fiery freestyle, Em called out Trump in a rant touching upon the NFL players' 'take a knee' protests, tensions with North Korea and the famous US/Mexico wall. He even told Trump supporters who are also fans of his to choose between one or the other.

Now Eminem's latest album Revival was finally released today, and people are already paying attention to the track 'Like Home', which also features Alicia Keys.

In the track, Em starts by telling Trump to expect a 'sheet' and for him to get booted out of office: "Someone get this Aryan a sheet/Time to bury him, so tell him to prepare to get impeached," the song begins.

Whether the 'sheet' Em refers to is the type to shut the famous tweeter up in his cage or the type they cover a dead body with in the morgue, either way it's brutal.

Em then carries on with the bird metaphors, comparing Trump to a parrot and a canary in a matter of seconds: "This chump barely even sleeps/All he does is watch Fox News like a parrot and repeats/While he looks like a canary with a beak/Why you think he banned transgenders from the military with a tweet?"

However blazing you might think 'Like Home' sounds, it's actually a call for unity in the U.S, as Em calls for the country to "band together for Charlottesville and for Heather", referring to the counter-protester Heather Heyer who was killed in this summer's clashes.

Eminem is not the only famous rapper to mock Trump since he took office last January, or even to hint at his facing more than just a political demise.

Back in November, Snoop Dogg announced his new record by posting a photo on Instagram which saw Snoop standing over a dead man with a 'Trump' tag on his toe.

The image was the final cover to Snoop's now-released EP Make America Crip Again, and was a homage to the cover for the classic Ice Cube album 1991's Death Certificate.

Who's hoping that Trump and Eminem spar more directly in the near future? Now that would be a clash to remember.
