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.”
“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.”
