Raury Donald Trump Diss: Artist Protests Trump On ‘Late Show With Stephen Colbert’
Raury and Donald Trump are not friends, and that was made clear during an appearance by the rapper on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert. Sporting a bright green Mexican jersey with the word Trump crossed out, Raury Alexander Tullis belted his single “God’s Whisper” moments after the politician and flamboyant billionaire had conducted an interview with host Stephen Colbert.
Raury and Donald Trump appeared on the same show, but have very different point of views when it comes to Mexicans.
On Tuesday night, the controversial author and mogul was a guest on Late Show With Stephen Colbert where he talked about building a giant wall between the United States and Mexico.
Trump, who recently declined to correct a supporter, who erroneously stated that Barack Obama is a Muslim, was asked by Stephen Colbert if he still believes that the president was born in Kenya.
To everyone’s surprise, the original birther declined to answer and went right back to pushing the storyline on how the U.S.-Mexico border will be sealed because he will make the Mexican government pay for it.
Mr. Trump’s interview was followed by an interesting performance from Atlanta-based rapper Raury Alexander Tullis, better known as Raury, who is promoting his new album, All We Need, due out on October 16.
Raury, 19, belted his southern rap song called “God’s Whisper,” which he produced and wrote. The teenager wore a green jersey in support of Mexico’s soccer team and his signature straw hat. After belting the following lyrics, Raury turned around to reveal that it had the word “Trump” crossed out with a giant red X.
“I won’t compromise
I won’t live a life
On my knees
You think I am nothing
I am nothing
You’ve got something coming
Something coming because.”
After the performance, Raury and his band yelled: This is for Mexico. He also spoke to Vice where he revealed that September is National Hispanic Heritage Month, and he is baffled by Trump’s countless insults towards Mexicans. Raury stated:
“Trump embodies separation, solving problems with anger, fear, and personal differences. I’m all about the opposite, about being inclusive and open.”
Raury, who wrote “Fly” after he learned that Darren Wilson was not indicted for shooting and killing unarmed black teenager Michael Brown last year in Ferguson, Missouri, added:
“I’ll always have something to say, especially when it affects me, like police brutality or giving the police any more power.”
