Donald Trump Jr. trolled washed-up rapper Eminem Tuesday amid a slew of negative reviews aimed at his new album “Revival.”
On Tuesday, Complex Magazine reported that the rapper has canned lines ready for President Trump.
“I’ve got lines ready if he says something about me,” claims Eminem.

Washington Examiner reports:
When asked if he was worried about losing fans due to the political tone in his new album, he responded: “I’m not worried about whether people like what I say politically.”
“I just want to know they’re listening,” he added. “As long as I have people’s ears, I have to say what I think is right.”
The rapper previously took a swing at the president in October in a freestyle rap that debuted during the 2017 BET Awards, however, it did not warrant a response from the White House.
Fox News contributor Stephen Miller followed up with, “Trump not responding to Eminem is the funniest thing of his presidency. EM thought he had him & it’s driving him insane that he didn’t even tweet about it.”
And now the Trump Jr. troll job…
“It’s a bit odd that he’s admitting to having prepared heavily to take on a 70 year old politician. Probably not the best look. So much for freestyle. #WillTheRealLoserPleaseStandUp.”

The hashtag is a play on the rapper’s song “The Real Slim Shady.”
High Snobiety complied some of the albums’s negative reviews:
The album finds a newly woke Marshall Mathers stumble through some clumsy rhymes and lumpen beats, yet on the whole he sounds freshly energised and inspired through its 19 tracks.
There are tiny twitches of genius on the rapper’s first album in four years, but to get there you have to wade through acres of bad gags, filler and formulaic fury
We can say that the real Slim Shady does show up and prove himself on a handful of Revival’s songs, but many of the more ‘noteworthy’ moments are buried under a mountain of contradictions and cringe-worthy attempts at shock value.
Eminem remains one of the most accomplished technical rappers of his generation, but his taste in beats and subjects lets him down mightily. Leaning on charisma-free collaborations, histrionic productions, and nearly half a dozen attempts to rewrite his 2010 hit “Love the Way You Lie,” “Revival” is a messy, ultimately exhausting misfire.
Eminem has made the worst album of his career with Revival. It’s a well-intended, tragically haphazard mess.
Eminem hits clunker after clunker on “Revival,” his clumsiest record to date. It’s not just the corny jokes and goofy puns, either, although those are plenty bad. The production — by Rick Rubin, Alex Da Kid and others, including Eminem himself — is just as ungainly, with turgid rock guitars and dreary mid-tempo grooves that make this 19-track set feel even longer and more punishing than it is.
Once an international rap star revered by fans and music critics alike, Eminem is now a washed-up “musician,” aiming to capitalize on anti-Trump hysteria propagated by the political and media elite to sell albums.
Speaking to Shade 45 on Sirius XM recently about his anti-Trump BET freestyle, the 45-year-old rapper said, “I was and am still extremely angry. I can’t stand that motherf*cker.”
“I feel like he’s not paying attention to me! I was kinda waiting for him to say something, and for some reason, he didn’t say anything,” added Eminem.

As The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft reported, Eminem went on a four minute freestyle rap against President Donald Trump in October.
Complete with references to Steve Bannon and the KKK.
Of course, there is no truth to anything Eminem was rapping about.
