Trump and Putin fall in love at the gay club in parody

real life boyfriends play the political figures

President Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin embark on a steamy affair at the gay club in the Shirtless Violinist’s latest project.

Matthew Olson, known as the Shirtless Violinist, portrays Putin who is performing a violin cover of “Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga. Trump is drowning his sorrows at the bar before feeling overcome by the music and bursting into a choreographed dance routine. He even rips off his shirt to reveal a “Make America Gay Again” T-shirt.

Trump and Putin lock eyes and fall in love at first sight. However, during their final dramatic kiss Melania Trump catches them in the act.

The video description reads: “They say only fools rush in, but when you’re Russian the rules don’t apply. Welcome to ‘Vlad’s Romance’ (some might call it a ‘Bad Romance’) set in an alternate, queer universe where politicians (left, right, and center) all hang out at the same gay night club.”

Other familiar faces spotted at the club include Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders. Olson’s boyfriend Paul Castle portrays both Donald and Melania.

Olson explains in the video description that the idea came to him after the release of his “Beauty and the Beast” parody.

“Back in March, when Paul and I released our gay twist on Beauty and the Beast, we got a lot of comments and feedback. One comment in particular really made us laugh. Referring to Paul’s transformation into Belle, it stated ‘ … at first I thought that was Melania Trump!'” Olson writes. “It was like a lightbulb went on over both of our heads. We turned to each other and agreed ‘We’ve gotta do a political satire!'”
