Stephen Colbert mocks Moby's dirt on Trump with fake celeb tweets

The electronic artist isn’t the only ‘random celebrity’ with the goods on POTUS.

Moby isn’t the only “random celebrity” who has dirt on President Trump. On Friday’s The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert unearthed more “totally real, actual tweets that we definitely did not just make up” from celebrities with even more scandalous details.

The electronic artist, whom Colbert joked looks like a “baby in graduate school,” earlier claimed to have sources confirming Trump’s ties to Russia before posting some of these allegations on Instagram.

“After spending the weekend talking to friends who work in dc i can safely(well, ‘accurately’…) post the following things,” Moby wrote on Instagram, claiming “the russian dossier on trump is real” and Trump is “being blackmailed by the russian government, not just for being peed on by russian hookers, but for much more nefarious things.”

after spending the weekend talking to friends who work in dc i can safely(well, 'accurately'…) post the following things: 1-the russian dossier on trump is real. 100% real. he's being blackmailed by the russian government, not just for being peed on by russian hookers, but for much more nefarious things. 2-the trump administration is in collusion with the russian government, and has been since day one. 3-the trump administration needs a war, most likely with iran. at present they are putting u.s warships off the coast of iran in the hope that iran will attack one of the ships and give the u.s a pretense for invasion. 4-there are right wing plans to get rid of trump. he's a drain on their fundraising and their approval ratings, and the gop and koch brothers and other u.s right wing groups are planning to get rid of trump. 5-intelligence agencies around the world, and here in the u.s, are horrified by the incompetence of the trump administration, and are working to present information that will lead to high level firings and, ultimately, impeachment. i'm writing these things so that when/if these things happen there will be a public record beforehand. these are truly baffling and horrifying times, as we have an incompetent president who is essentially owned by a foreign power. -moby

“Now, random celebs claiming to have dirt on the President seems crazy,” Colbert said during his opening monologue, “until you remember that the President is a random celeb.” Referring to Tom Arnold’s claim of possessing “all the outtakes of Trump saying the n-word on The Apprentice,” Colbert added, “Things are so weird right now that Moby and Tom Arnold seem more reliable than [Trump counselor] Kellyanne Conway and [White House Press Secretary] Sean Spicer.”

Colbert then posted fake tweets from other celebrities who are “coming out of the woodwork with their own Trump scoops.” He joked about Coolio reporting about Trump “planning a ground war with China. I heard it from my cousin, who dated a Chinese girl once. She was nice, her name was Helen.”

“If you’re wondering when Moby’s Instagram became the public record,” Colbert said, “it was shortly after Trump’s Twitter feed became the Library of Congress.”
