Is it just us, or does nothing make any sense since Donald Trump was elected POTUS? With each passing day, life in Trump’s America feels more and more like the world’s worst reality show, complete with surprising twists, over-the-top characters, and really (really) bad spray tans.
But no storyline (at least so far) has captured the nation’s attention quite like the idea that Trump colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election. And this week, the Trump-Russia saga took an even more bizarre turn. During a radio interview with WFPK in Louisville, Kentucky, vocal Trump critic and musician Moby said CIA agents asked him to post on social media about those alleged Trump-Russia ties.
And now, we don’t know what to think.
Moby was supposed to be discussing his new album Everything Was Beautiful, and Nothing Hurt. But before long, the conversation shifted to a cryptic message the DJ posted to Instagram in February 2017. It was then he originally claimed to have top-secret information about Trump’s ties to Russia.
Almost one year later, could it be Moby was telling the truth?
Talking to WFPK’s Kyle Meredith, Moby said that after “years of touring and spending time in D.C. and New York,” he managed to “make friends in the intelligence community.”
According to Moby, his CIA agent friends were “truly concerned” about the Trump-Russia issue. They even referred to Trump as a “Russian agent” before asking Moby to get the word out on social media. You know, typical CIA stuff.
And boy, did Moby indeed put it out there.
“It’s really disturbing and it’s going to get quite a lot darker,” Moby added. “Like the depths of the Trump family in business and their involvement with organized crime, sponsored terrorism, Russian oligarchs, it’s really dark. I guess we should all, like, fasten our seat belts and hold on.”
But, wait! The plot thickens…
On Saturday, January 13th, Moby took to Instagram again to clear a little something up. Namely, that the CIA did not ask him to post about Trump and Russia. Huh?
We can’t make this stuff up.
Guess it’s just another day in Trump’s America.
