Jay-Z Psychoanalyzes Trump: “Something Happened To Him”

Jay-Z said called President Trump a “superbug” in an interview with CNN’s Van Jones and chalked his reported ‘shithole’ remark to “something [that] happened to him and he is expressing it in this sort of way.”

“This is the leader of the free world speaking like this … somewhere along his lineage something happened to him. Something happened to him and he is expressing it in this sort of way,” the hip-hop artist said.

He also said Trump is “looking down at a whole population of people” and “misinformed” when he uses a term like ‘shithole’ to describe “beautiful” places.

Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, likened Trump to former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling who was ousted after an audio tape of him making racist comments surfaced. He called Trump a “closet racist.”

“What you do when you do that is the bugs come and you spray something and you create a superbug,” Jay-Z explained his theory of “closet racists” running back to their hole. “Because you don’t take care of the problem, you don’t take the trash out. You just keep spraying whatever over it to make it acceptable. Then as those things grow, you create a superbug.”

Transcript, via CNN:

VAN JONES, CNN: We have a President that comes and says every African country is a ‘shithole country,’ how does that land with you as a dad?

SHAWN “JAY-Z” CARTER: It is disappointing and it’s hurtful. It really is hurtful, more than so … everyone feels anger but after the anger, it’s real hurtful.

Because it’s looking down at a whole population of people and it’s so misinformed because these places have beautiful people and beautiful everything. This is the leader of the free world speaking like this.

On the other side, this has been going on. This is how people talk, this is how people talk behind closed doors. There was a moment when Donald Sterling had been exposed as a racist on this private phone conversation he was having and they took the team from him. Okay, that is one way to do it. But another way to do it is let him have his team and then let’s talk about it together, maybe some penalties.

Because once you do that, all the other closest racists run back in the hole. You haven’t fixed anything. What you’ve done is spray perfume on the trashcan. What you do when you do that is the bugs come and you spray something and you create a superbug. Because you don’t take care of the problem, you don’t take the trash out. You just keep spraying whatever over it to make it acceptable. Then as those things grow, you create a superbug.

And now we have Donald Trump, the superbug. Donald Trump is a human being, too. I just like want you — I’m being funny, I say that too. But somewhere along his lineage, something happened to him. Something happened to him and he is expressing it in this sort of way.
