Side Note

Aubrey O’Day wrote a song that’s probably about having an affair with Donald Trump Jr.

Ever wonder what it would be like to have a torrid affair with Donald Trump Jr.? I’m guessing no, but that doesn’t matter, because Aubrey O’Day’s 2013 Between Two Evils album opener “DJT” may offer a peek into the world of a whirlwind romance with the White House’s newest bachelor. News that Trump Jr.’s wife Vanessa is reportedly divorcing him led to rumors that the first son and the pop star met and started a relationship in 2011 while O’Day was a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice and Trump Jr. was six years into his marriage to Vanessa.

Apparently, the affair ended on a sour note that left O’Day high and dry, because “DJT” (also Trump Jr.’s initials) tells of a love ended too soon and with betrayal. “I have to move on, I need your help / I can't believe that this was all a lie / You have to tell me you love me,” O’Day says in a Drake-esque recorded phone conversation skit. And while the voice on the other end seems to be some sort of Drake impersonator, the evidence is strong that it’s actually a stand-in for Trump Jr. who inspired O’Day to sing the song’s refrain: “I hate me for loving you, hate you for letting our love die.” Hopefully, five years later, O’Day has come to the realization that she dodged a major, national security-level bullet.
