You may not have a favorite Moby song, but you will have a favorite Moby conspiracy theory

Musician and activist Moby took to social media on Monday to lay out a series of specific, left-field conspiracy theories involving President Trump. He thinks we’re on the brink of war with Iran, and that Trump is a Russian puppet who enjoys being urinated on by prostitutes. 

The good news is that, if the musician who struck fame with 1999’s textured electronica album Press Play is to be believed, Trump’s own Republican party is actively plotting against this apparently treasonous comrade to Putin.

“[T]hese are truly baffling and horrifying times, as we have an incompetent president who is essentially owned by a foreign power,” Moby wrote on Instagram after talking to friends who “work in DC.”

Moby did not reply to a request for comment.

He also suggested that we listen to punk rock pioneers Black Flag during the “apocalypse.”

As of this writing, Moby is a trending item in the U.S. on Twitter. 

Let’s hope he’s the kind of celebrity who is narcissistic enough to believe in covert government schemes to silence the world—and is not actually on to something.
