Jay-Z Addresses Trump’s S***hole Comment Via CNN
In a discussion with CNN’s Van Jones, rapper Jay-Z provides his view on the recent Trump remarks. Jay-Z says Trump referring to these areas as “S***hole Countries” was “disappointing and hurtful.” Jay-Z however does not have the same attitude towards Trump as many others. He states, “Somewhere along his lineage something happened to [Trump]. Something happened to him, and he is expressing it in this sort of way.”
Van Jones asks Jay-Z if unemployment per African-Americans decreasing makes a difference.”Treat people like human beings, that’s the main point. It goes back to the whole thing, ‘Treat me really bad and pay me well.’ It’s not gonna lead to happiness” he responded.
He refers to Trump as this “superbug” that just keeps getting worse.
Trump, per usual turns to Twitter for a response.
Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!

Of course Van Jones had to correct Trump.
“Someone needs to inform @realdonaldtrump that I ALREADY asked Jay Z whether black employment figures redeem Trump’s presidency. And Jay’s answer last night on the #VanJonesShow was POWERFUL!!!
