If 2020 wasn’t already bizarre enough, Donald Trump put another layer of icing on the WTF cake this year has brought us.

During an Atlanta campaign event during which the president spoke, the president gave a shout out to local rapper and producer Polow Da Don, who was apparently in attendance.

Trump noted that Polow was in the audience and acknowledged him by name. He then added, "You know Don King used to call me 'The Don.' He still does, actually."

  1. Shortly afterward Trump's shoutout hit social media and had everyone scratching their heads, both over the reason why Trump decided to make the shoutout, and perhaps more pressing, why was Polow there in the first place.

  2. Polow Da Don is most known for producing hits like Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda," "Buttons" by the Pussycat Dolls, and "Love in This Club" by Usher.
