While it may seem like the worlds of Hollywood and politics are colliding much more frequently these days, stories like that one you’re about to read aren’t ordinary by any means.
When we think of celebrities possibly being involved with covert intelligence agency operations, our minds envision something like the basement bar scene from the Quentin Tarentino film Inglorious Basterds, in which a pretty German actress, (played by pretty German actress Diane Kruger), is assisting a platoon of American spies posing as Nazis.
Or, perhaps we think of the old story about celebrity chef Julia Childs whose earlier career feats included a stint in spy-dom during World War II.
On the other end of the believability scale, however, is the idea that a nerdy, aging electro-pop musician would somehow be connected to a CIA scheme to disparage a sitting U.S. President.
Yet, that is exactly what Moby would have us believe.
“Singer Moby claimed his friends in the CIA asked him to spread the word that President Trump has ties to Russia because he has a larger social media following than the government agency.
“Moby, whose birth name is Richard Melville Hall, told Kentucky radio station WFPK in an interview this week that he has friends in the CIA who asked him for his help.“The subject came up after the host, Kyle Meredith, asked the electronic singer about his cryptic Facebook post he wrote in 2017. The post stated that after he spent time with friends who ‘work in D.C.’ he could ‘accurately post’ that the Fusion GPS Dossier was ‘100% real. He’s being blackmailed by the Russian government.’ The post also claimed Trump has colluded ‘with the Russian government, and has been since day one,’ wants to go to war and there are ‘right-wing plans to get rid of Trump.’”
Once again, the left is pushing all sorts of strange Russian narratives in the direction of the general public, for the sole purpose of training the Trump presidency.
Not only are Moby’s claims quite difficult to believe on their face, but they fit nicely into the liberal singer’s own narrative. One of the artist’s recent music videos portrayed Donald Trump as an evil robot that transformed into the shape of a swastika.
