Below is an assortment of some of the best worst tweets to use hip hop culture as an insult.
@FoxNews @POTUS now wasn’t that a classy move…insert eye roll! You’re the president, not a rapper. #buhbye

@FoxNews @POTUS You are the President at the white house correspondence dinner not battling Eminem on 8 mile. My lord.

#MicDrop vs #DropsMic. There’s a difference.
@FoxNews Just made same mistake, it should be #MicDrop, NOT, I repeat, NOT #DropsMic. That just makes the @POTUS seem a bit clumsy…

Just a guess but Tom probably hasn’t spent much time in the CPT.

Let’s just hope this man has never seen rockstar smash a guitar.
Obama’s mic drop was arrogant hip-hop disrespect. Damages the equipment. Symbolic of the way he drop-kicks the Constitution.
