It’s the viral moment everyone’s talking about: During the BET Hip Hop Awards Tuesday night (October 10), Eminem , to put it politely, 'When the Shady Party called and told me there's going to be a convention, I said, it's got to be a really big one and it's got to be right here in New York,' Trump said at the start of his speech. 'Because this is the best city anywhere in the world, am I right? Of course I'm right. I'm always right. I'm Donald Trump, I'm always right.'

He continued, 'I know a winner when I see one. And Donald Trump is telling you right now, Slim Shady is a winner. He's got brains. He's got guts. And he's got Donald Trump's vote. Ladies and gentlemen, our great candidate, Slim Shady!'

In hindsight, the whole thing is a frightening look into the future — Trump’s insistence that he's 'always right' certainly hasn't wavered a bit — but we have to think he'd revoke that endorsement now.
