Mac Miller brought his feud with Donald Trump to The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore Wednesday, “whitesplaining” the Republican presidential frontrunner’s own problematic platform back to him.
The unlikely feud between the rapper and candidate dates back to Miller’s 2011 song, “Donald Trump,” which the mogul initially liked. But after the song went platinum, Trump threatened to sue for royalties over the use of his name. While Miller previously clapped back on Twitter by pleading with America to not elect Trump, he fleshed out his argument in a hilarious monologue that began with a succinct message, “I fucking hate you, Donald Trump.”
Miller then picked apart Trump’s campaign slogan — “Make America Great Again” — which he says, in the context of his record of xenophobia and racism, is a thinly veiled way of saying, “Make America White Again.” Miller slammed the candidate for “lowering the bar for the nation’s intelligence” and doing everything he can to stay in the spotlight, even if it meant fueling the fire of hate groups.
“The messed up thing is, I don’t even know if you’re evil,” Miller said. “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.
In closing, Miller preempted his well-earned mic drop by promising that even if America did elect Trump, he wouldn’t leave the country in protest. “I’m staying right the fuck here,” he proclaimed. “I’m not going anywhere. I’m gonna be here every day telling the world how much I hate you, how much of a clown you are, and how we as a nation are better than you will ever be as a racist fuckwad of a human.”
