Another season of Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta is headed to WE tv on January 7. According to a new trailer, the latest batch of episodes contains a storyline that involves the 2020 presidential election and lame-duck President Donald Trump.
“I f### with Trump!” Deb Antney can be heard saying in a trailer for the show. Antney, an industry veteran and mother of rapper Waka Flocka Flame, apparently shocked her castmates with that announcement.

In another 90-second trailer posted by The Jasmine Brand, other members of the reality show’s cast can be seen reacting negatively to Antney’s support for Trump. In particular, the video teases a tense scene between Nicki Minaj’s former manager and Waka Flocka’s wife.
Tammy Rivera tells the family matriarch, “I would hate to have to disown my own mother-in-law.” Antney fires back at Rivera by insisting, “Damn it, you don’t know s###.” Her son seems to be caught in the middle.
Waka Flocka has apparently changed his opinion on Trump over the years. In 2015, the “No Hands” rhymer blasted the Republican politician by calling him a “#patheticman” for his controversial comments directed at Mexican immigrants. Two years later, Waka literally wiped his butt with a Trump jersey live on stage.
However, during the final weeks of this year’s campaign, the 34-year-old Atlanta resident implied that Trump was a better president than Barack Obama. Former Vice President Joe Biden ended up defeating Donald Trump in the 2020 election 306 to 232 in the Electoral College and 81.3 million to 74.2 million in the popular vote.
