‘Super bug’: Jay-Z compares Trump to an insect in interview with one of CNN’s communist hosts

Jay-Z is still stuck on yesterday’s controversy.

The rapper and entrepreneur lashed out at President Trump for referring to Haiti and African nations as “s***hole countries,” calling the president a “super bug” and suggesting he’s “in pain.”

“It’s disappointing and it’s hurtful,” Jay-Z told CNN’s Van Jones regarding the comment. “It really is hurtful, more so, like everyone feels anger–but after the anger is really hurtful, because he’s like looking down on a whole population of people. ”

The artist and former president of Def Jam Recordings defended the nations President Trump allegedly insulted.

“And you’re so misinformed, because these places have beautiful people and have beautiful everything. And it’s just like, this is the leader of the free world speaking like this.”

His remarks echoed the sentiment of talk show host Conan O’Brien, who protested President Trump’s “s***hole” comment by traveling to Haiti and staying in a luxury resort.

Jay-Z continued:

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

“Maybe some penalties, but, because once you do that–all of the other closet racists just run back in the hole, you haven’t fixed anything. What you’ve done is spray perfume on a trash can. What you do when you do that is you know the bugs come and you spray some thing and then they come and you create a super bug. Right? Because you don’t take care of the problem.”

The celebrity, who is married to pop singer Beyonce, insinuated that President Trump’s alleged racism is the result of painful experiences in his past.

“You don’t take the trash out. You just keep spraying whatever over it to make it acceptable. And then you know, as those things grow, you create a super bug. Now we have Donald Trump, the super bug. I’m being funny, I mean, I say that, too, but somewhere along his lineage, something happened to him, something happened to him and he’s in pain, and he’s like expressing it in this sort of way.”

Jay-Z, a supporter of Hillary Clinton, caused a stir in November by saying there’s more sexism than racism in America.
