Donald Trump has attacked Jay Z‘s lyrics, slamming his use of the N & F-words during his performance at Hillary Clinton’s rally on Friday (Nov 4).
Beyoncé and Jay Z headlined a Get Out The Vote concert in Cleveland, Ohio to support and officially endorse Hillary Clinton. The event also featured appearances from Chance The Rapper, J. Cole, and Big Sean, before Beyoncé gave a lengthly speech about why she’s voting for Clinton.
During an event in Tampa, Florida yesterday (Nov 5), Trump addressed Jay Z’s lyrics during the performance at the rally, saying “I’ll tell you what: I’ve never said what he said – in my life!”
“The language last night. Ohh … I was thinking, ‘Maybe I’ll just try it.’ Should I use that language? Can you imagine if I said that?” Trump said. “So he used every word in the book. I won’t even use the initials, because I’ll get in trouble. They’ll get me in trouble. He used every word in the book last night.”
“I tell you what: I’ve never said what he said – in my life! But that shows you the phoniness of politicians and the phoniness of the whole system, folks!”
The Pink Floyd legend, who used his recent Desert Trip set to brand Trump an “arrogant, lying, racist, sexist pig”, shared his forthright views in an episode of the WTF with Marc Maron podcast.
“It’s a short step to all out-total fascism, a complete police state. It’s always insidious when it creeps up. It was insidious in Germany in the ’30s. National Trumpism feels a bit less insidious, but it’s just as dangerous,” Waters told Maron.
“The method for taking over the state and for it becoming a totalitarian police state, it’s always the same – it’s always the identification of the other as the enemy,” Waters continued. “In Trump’s case, it’s the Chinese, the Mexicans and Islam. With Hitler, it was the Jews, the Communists, the Gypsies [as well as] anyone who had a physical deformity [and] homosexuals.”
Trump is preying on a population that “feels defeated”, Waters argued, as “everyone’s standard of living is falling” and “the Bill of Rights are slowly being taken away from you”.
