We all love bacon.
It may very well be the perfect food.
But new direct messages released by a model named Melissa Stetten have revealed the level to which Donald Trump Jr. apparently adores this pig-made delicacy...
... and it's A LOT.
Donald Trump Jr. loves bacon a lot.
The oldest son of President Donald Trump, whose marriage legally fell apart this week, sent Stetten a number of messages in November of 2011, not long after his wife gave birth to son Tristan.
The DMs don't necessarily reflect any sort of inappropriate relationship between the businessman and the model.
They simply depict an odd obsession of Donald Trump Jr.'s that has been rumored about over the years.
“Surprised his marriage didn’t work out since he was sending me DMs a month after his wife gave birth,” Stetten tweeted this week, sharing a screen shot of Trump Jr.’s message to her, which read as follows:
“Well Im getting s–t 4the bacon comment glad I opted not 2send the tweet asking 4pics from ur bathroom tweet last night;) people need2chil.”
Need an explanation?
Let's turn to Stetten...
She said on Thursday that this DM came after she tweeted a “joke about pulling a muscle changing a tampon” and - to her confusion - “he replied asking if I smelled bacon?”
Once word of this exchange went viral, a spokeswoman for Trump Jr. provided the full thread of their DMs in order to prove two things:
1. There was no affair going on.
2. Both sides were clearly joking around during their online chat.
Here is the full exchange:
We're happy to grant that Trump Jr. and Stetten were not carrying on in a sexual manner.
Was the former flirting with the latter? We'll leave that up to readers to debate.
Stetten told People Magazine, though, that she had “no idea” what The Other Donald meant by the bacon reference, although she did cite other Tweets from around this time that proved Trump has “some weird obsession with bacon.”
One tweet from Trump Jr. back then read:
“Does anyone else have a Bacon fetish??? It sounds so wrong but tastes so right!”
How does Stetten know Trump?
She doesn't, not really.
“He just started following me so I followed back," she tells People, adding:
"He would favorite my tweets and occasionally reply. I always thought of the Trumps as idiots so it was entertaining to see his failed attempts at hitting on me.”
In further Tweets shared by Stetten, she responded to his initial remark by joking, “@DonaldJTrumpJr soaking my body in bacon today,” to which he replied:
“Now you’re just toying w my emotions. Why don’t women come up w bacon perfume? Seems so much better than that channel [sic] crap."
He later wrote:
“Stop that!!! I am a happily married man,” with a winking smiley face.
Okay, there's no longer a debate: Trump was flirting with her.
Trump Jr. has not publicly responded to Stetten’s tweets.
He does have other things to worry about, of course.
As previously mentioned, his wife and the mother of five children just filed for divorce.
And he's also under investigation for possibly colluding with Russian agents in order to help swing the Presidential election to his father.
