Donald Trump either accidentally liked a tweet about an R&B singer’s “stripper” vibe, or he was up late searching for “stripper” on Twitter and came upon a tweet he decided to show appreciation for. Either way, it’s creepy.

Summer Walker is an R&B singer who has released some sexually suggestive music videos.

A fan of one of Walker’s recent songs took to Twitter in the wee hours of the morning on Friday to praise her moving song “Let It Go” and her “stripper” vibe in the next track.


There’s one fan the Twitter user and Walker weren’t counting on: The president.

That’s right. Trump’s personal Twitter account liked the tweet above in the middle of the night. And we know that Trump is occasionally on the Internet late.

Here’s a screen capture:

The Twitter user, who goes by “laila” and supports the Black Lives Matter movement, expressed shock that Trump had liked the post.

When asked why Trump would like the tweet, “laila” jokingly answered.

Why did Trump really like the tweet? We don’t know. Did he himself like it or did one of his staffers? We don’t know that either. But there were no likes before on Trump’s account and then there was one late last night. It’s like that time Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) liked a pornographic tweet.

Just like Ted, Donald or one of his staffers soon deleted the like. And why he liked it in the first place may always be a mystery. But, it’s still creepy.
