Jay Z sat down with CNN’s Van Jones over the weekend, where he was very candid about his personal life and his political views.
The newest editions to the Carter family, Sir and Rumi, were a topic of discussion. Jay says him and Bey are enjoying the non-walking age of their twins for now, and praised his first born Blue Ivy as the person she is becoming.
What really caught the attention of our President Donald Trump was when Jay called him a “super bug.” Nicely explained, Jay says Trump is the result of what happens when we spray the bugs, instead of taking out the trash. Eventually you’ll create a super bug.
Trump replied back Twitter tweeting, “Somebody please inform Jay Z that because of my policies, Black unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!”
Just so Trump knows, the unemployment rates for black people have been steadily falling since around 2010, when President Obama was in office. Therefore, he is once again trying to take credit for something he did not do.
Watch the full clip.
"Everyone feels anger, but after the anger it's really hurtful. … he's looking down on a whole population of people, and he's so misinformed," JAY-Z slams Trump's "shithole" comment.
