The White House is calling for a boycott of T.I. after he posted a video of him appearing on an Oval Office look-alike set with a naked Melania Trump look-a-like performing a striptease
TIP posted the 60-minute clip on Twitter and addressed it to the 45th President, commenting, “Dear 45, I ain’t Kanye.”
The video begins with President Trump entering a helicopter, as an announcer says, “Melania Trump did not go to Mar-a-Lago with the president this weekend, which has a lot of people wondering.”
As the helicopter leaves, we see T.I. in a replica of the Oval Office in the White House. The Melania look-a-like enters, wearing a jacket with the words “I Really Don’t Care Do U?” written on the back. That of course refers to the controversial jacket the first lady wore in June when she visited a Texas holding center where undocumented children were placed after being separated from their parents.
As the rapper lights a cigar, the woman removes the jacket, revealing herself to be naked as she jumps on the desk and grabs T.I.’s tie. They then walk out of the office, as the Melania look-alike uses lipstick to deface a portrait of the president on a wall.
The video ends with a clip of President Trump riding away in a golf cart giving a thumbs up.
Mrs. Trump’s communications director, Stephanie Grisham, tweeted, “How is this acceptable? #disgusting #boycottT.I. @Tip.”
T.I. has been a constant critic of the president. In a lengthy, blunt Instagram post, he called out Kanye West for meeting with Trump last week.
“This is the most repulsive, disgraceful, embarrassing act of desperation & auctioning off of one’s soul to gain power I’ve ever seen,” T.I. wrote, revealing that Kanye had asked him to attend the Trump meeting, which he declined to do.
