First lady Melania Trump's spokeswoman hit out at rapper T.I. after he released a controversial music video featuring a likeness of the first lady giving a lap dance for the rapper, who was posing as the president.

The rapper, whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., can be seen smoking in a depiction of the Oval Office while sitting behind the Resolute Desk as the first lady's likeness dances and strip-teases, and eventually ends up on the desktop fully nude.

What did she say?

In a Saturday tweet, Trump's spokeswoman — Stephanie Grisham — wrote, "How is this acceptable? #disgusting #boycottT.I. @Tip."

Trump's own Twitter account retweeted Grisham's sentiments later that same day.

Neither Grisham nor the first lady has issued any follow-up statements to the Saturday tweet at the time of this writing.

What else?

Harris shared the video on Friday and captioned it, "Dear 45, I ain't Kanye," pointing to the president's meeting with rapper Kanye West, which took place on Thursday.

Harris was very outspoken against West's Oval Office visit, and said that he was "ashamed to have ever been associated with" West.

"I've reached my limits," Harris wrote in a Friday Instagram posting. "This is my stop, I'm officially DONE!!!!"

He added, "To all the people who follow Ye musically, socially, or even personally ... who are confused, heartbroken, infuriated ... let me make this clear ... this s*** ain't cool!!!"

The rapper also added, "You a** kissing and boot licking on a whole new level [and] I refuse to associate myself with something so vile, weak, [and] inconsiderate to the effect this has on the greater good of ALL OUR PEOPLE!!!!"

The video clip in question was a teaser for the rapper's new album, "Dime Trap."
