But his latest appearance in Emin’s music video for his song “Got Me Good” is raising eyebrows for a different reason. A look-alike Trump stars alongside versions of his daughter Ivanka, his rumored fling Stormy Daniels, Facebook head honcho Mark Zuckerberg, and, just for good measure, Hillary Clinton.
And no joke, the video concludes with them all playing a game of poker.
Emin, a deadringer for Seth MacFarlane, is a Russian pop singer with a connection to Trump that stretches back several years. His father, Aras Agalarov, collaborated with Trump to bring the Miss Universe contest, which Trump once owned, to Moscow in 2013.
Emin and Trump have had a cozy relationship for years now, and in 2015 Trump even sent Emin birthday wishes via YouTube.
Fast forward to 2016, when Donald Trump Jr. met with a Russian lawyer in NYC’s Trump Tower seeking damaging information about Hillary Clinton. Who set up the meeting? None other than Emin’s publicist, Rob Goldstone.
So, it’s undeniably intentional that Emin’s new music video for “Got Me Good” spoofs Trump. And if you listen closely, it sounds like their relationship is on ice. “I wish you at least could be honest,” he croons to Trump’s look-alike. “I wish that you told me the truth.”
The music video’s story, if you can call it that, seems to follow shady dealings involving a package between Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Mark Zuckerberg. But at one point that intrigue is interrupted by a model-filled pillow fight.
That scene seems like a direct reference to the alleged “pee tape” — an unverified accusation that Trump once watched two prostitutes urinate on a bed in Moscow. Trump has, many times, called the dossier that contained this allegation a fraud.
Never seen such Republican ANGER & UNITY as I have concerning the lack of investigation on Clinton made Fake Dossier (now $12,000,000?),….

Workers of firm involved with the discredited and Fake Dossier take the 5th. Who paid for it, Russia, the FBI or the Dems (or all)?

As for Emin, this isn’t the first time he has featured Trump in a music video. In 2013, he actually managed to book the real deal (jump to the very end of the video).
