Russian pop star linked to Trump releases music video trolling us all

Just like Law & Order plots were ripped from the headlines, Russian pop star Emin Agalarov's music video for his new song "Got Me Good" appears to be based on information found inside the bombshell Steele dossier.

The Steele dossier dished on an encounter that allegedly took place between President Trump and some Russian women in a Moscow hotel room, and in the "Got Me Good" video, a fake Trump is seen cavorting in a gilded hotel with bikini-clad beauty pageant winners. That's just the beginning — there are also stand-ins for Stormy Daniels, Hillary Clinton, Ivanka Trump, and Mark Zuckerberg; the exchanging of briefcases; a pillow fight; a poker game; surveillance footage; and oh yes, "Kim Jong Un" eating popcorn. As for the song, it sounds like something you'd hear during happy hour at a suburban lounge known for its purple mood lighting.

Emin Agalarov and his billionaire father, Aras Agalarov, have several ties to President Trump, with Aras Agalarov hosting the Miss Universe competition in 2013; Trump appearing in one of Emin's earlier videos; and Emin's publicist Rob Goldstone arranging the meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and Russian lawyers at Trump Tower in 2016.
