Given the nature of the liberal “resistance” to President Donald Trump’s time in the Oval Office, it comes as no surprise that a controversial hip hop figure would take pot shots at POTUS.
Snoop Dogg, hip hop legend and television reality star, had previously decided to take on Trump with a series of incendiary images, including a number of assassination insinuations; one in a music video and the other in a bit of album artwork.
Now another major rap superstar is jumping aboard the anti-Trump bandwagon, but has decided that merely depicting the President as a targeted man was not enough…and that’s why T.I. went after First Lady Melania Trump instead.
First lady Melania Trump’s spokeswoman on Tuesday went after rapper T.I., whose most recent music video features a Trump lookalike dancing without clothes in a fake Oval Office.“Like it or not, she is the first lady and this is the White House,” Stephanie Grisham, Trump’s communications director, told CNN in a statement. “It’s disrespectful and disgusting to portray her this way simply because of politics. These kinds of vulgar attacks only further the divisiveness and bias in our country — it needs to stop.”
T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, stars in the video as himself, seated at a fake Resolute Desk in a setting made to look like the Oval Office. Video footage of President Donald Trump taking off from the White House in Marine One plays, and shortly afterward, a woman enters the “Oval Office.” The woman is wearing only a jacket, which reads: “I really don’t care do u?,” a clear nod to the controversial Zara jacket the first lady wore during a June trip to Texas.
The woman in the video, who has a clear resemblance to Melania Trump, then proceeds to strip off the jacket and dance atop the desk.
To add insult to injury, T.I. made a personal point when sharing his latest creation.
On Friday, T.I. tweeted the video with the accompanying statement: “Dear 45, I ain’t Kanye.”
The Atlanta-based rapper is, of course, referring to fellow hip hop star Kanye West, whose admiration of President Trump was on full display last week in a bizarre appearance at The White House.
