Russian Pop Star Behind Trump Tower Meeting Releases Wacky Music Video Starring 'Trump'

Emin Agalarov, who helped organize the infamous meeting involving Donald Trump Jr. and several Russians, is apparently "trolling everyone" with this new clip.

The Trump-Russia scandal just took another bizarre turn — this time in the form of a head-scratching music video created by the aspiring Russian pop star who helped arrange the infamous Trump Tower meeting involving Donald Trump Jr. and several Russians.

Emin Agalarov, son of Russian oligarch Aras Agalarov, released the baffling clip on Tuesday. It features actors depicting several figures involved in Robert Mueller’s special investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, including Donald Trump, his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner. Actors portraying Hillary Clinton, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un also make appearances.

Agalarov and President Trump have a history of friendship. Back in 2013, Agalarov and his father partnered with the real estate magnate to bring the Miss Universe contest to Russia. During a visit by Trump to Moscow that year, Agalarov was reportedly his “primary companion.” It was during that trip that the alleged “pee tape” was filmed at Moscow’s Ritz-Carlton Hotel. As The New Yorker’s Adam Davidson noted on Tuesday, “Emin Agalarov is one of the only people in the world who might have firsthand knowledge of what Trump did or didn’t do” during his time in the Russian capital.

The video Agalarov released this week, accompanying a song called “Got Me Good,” has been interpreted as a humorous, though ham-fisted, nod to that Moscow visit. In one scene, Agalarov and a Trump impersonator are seen exchanging a briefcase in a hotel hallway.

“I wish you at least could be honest. I wish that you told me the truth,” Agalarov croons to the Trump stand-in, before the pair walks into a hotel room with several bikini-clad models.

A hacker-type figure is seen watching surveillance footage of the scene before he erases Trump from the video. The words “TRUE_FAKE” then appear on the screen.

The music video, at first, appears almost incriminating. But as the clip continues, it degenerates into absurdity.

More briefcases and envelopes are shadily exchanged by the various characters in the clip ― though, for what purpose, it’s never made clear. At one point, an actor portraying Hillary Clinton is seen knocking back shots at a club with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner impersonators. Later, actors playing Mark Zuckerberg, Stormy Daniels and Donald Trump are seen partying together.

At the very end of the video, the mysterious hacker figure is revealed to be none other than an actor playing Kim Jong Un.

Agalarov is trolling “everyone,” TheWrap concluded after watching the clip.

Agalarov has been an important figure in the Russia investigation because of the role he played in facilitating the meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian delegation at Trump Tower in June 2016.

Agalarov had told his publicist Rob Goldstone to contact Trump’s eldest son to relay a “very interesting” message from his father, Aras.

“The Crown prosecutor of Russia ... offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father,” the email, which Trump Jr. himself released to the public, said. “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump ― helped along by Aras and Emin.”

Trump Jr. responded with apparent enthusiasm to the suggestion. “If it’s what you say I love it,” he replied.
