Rapper Jay-Z thought it would be a good idea to take on Trump, calling the President a “superbug” and attacking his treatment of minorities. It turns out this was a very poor decision.
First of all, the facts just aren’t on Jay-Z’s side. President Trump responded to the rapper, informing him that black unemployment is currently at its lowest rate ever recorded as a result of his policies.
But now things are getting even worse for Jay-Z:
Jay-Z went home from the Grammys empty-handed, even though he was the most-nominated artist of the night, capping off a bad weekend for the rapper that included a highly publicized feud with President Trump.
The rapper left Sunday night’s show with no trophies after receiving eight nominations for his album “4:44.” The 48-year-old rapper couldn’t get past the tough competition despite being the most nominated artist of the evening.
Jay-Z lost coveted awards, including album of the year that Bruno Mars took home for “24K Magic.” Kendrick Lamar also took home best rap song for “Humble” and even gave a shout out to Jay-Z.
“Jay for President,” Lamar said during his acceptance speech in New York City’s Madison Square Garden.
He did receive a President’s Merit Award award at a pre-Grammy gala, but more people were talking about his fight with Trump than about that.
He had called Trump criticized Trump’s alleged ‘s**thole comments about Haiti and some African countries, calling him “misinformed” and a “superbug.”
Trump responded, “Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!”
And indeed, the Bureau of Labor Statistics back him up, declaring that the rate is 6.8 percent, the lowest in 45 years.
But Jay-Z scoffed at that response.
From Daily Caller:
Jay-Z told CNN in a new interview that lower unemployment for the country’s African-American population is not enough, when people in power are still mistreating minorities and others.
“It’s not about money at the end of the day,” he said in the interview. “Money doesn’t equate to happiness. It doesn’t. That’s missing the whole point. You treat people like human beings. That’s the main point.”
Yes, for billionaire liberals it’s hard to understand the concept that a job can give you financial freedom and not have to rely on them and Democrats’ empty promises.
Some did think that Jay-Z might be suffering from bad karma for reasons other than his fight with Trump.
“Jay Z didn’t win cause he cheated on Queen Bee, but I ain’t the one to gossip *sips wine*,” according to one Grammy viewer, referencing his wife Beyonce.
Others weighed in on the snub.
What goes around does definitely tend to come around.
