Donald Trump is clearly desperate to fill the gaping holes in his inaugural ball celebrity line-up. He’s even reached out to the apparent last person who would support him, the über-liberal Moby. Moby, unlike the hoards of other celebrities who laughed at Trump’s offer, agreed to play the inauguration, under one condition: Trump provide his tax returns.
“Hahahahaha, I was just asked by a booking agent if I would consider djing at one of the inaugural balls for #trump…,” Moby wrote on Instagram.
“Hahahahaha, wait, Hahahaha, really? I guess I’d DJ at an inaugural ball if as payment #trump released his tax returns… So #trump what do you think, I DJ for you and you release your tax returns?”
It’s so bizarre that the Trump camp would have reached out to Moby in the first place. He was a Hillary Clinton supporter during the election and he said this Donald Trump (emphasis added):
In past elections, I’ve vehemently disagreed with people’s political orientation or the policies they are proposing, but with Trump, I actually find myself disagreeing with his humanity. I think there is something seriously broken inside him where he’s an actual sociopath and on the spectrum pretty close to being a psychopath. He’s done nothing to indicate that he’s even capable of feeling empathy [for anyone] except for himself.
[A Trump presidency would be] death by 1,000 Republican cuts. It basically gives the NRA the ability to write gun policy. It gives the coal industry and the oil industry the ability to write energy policy. It’s handing the keys to people who want to advance policy measures that are just — again, I try and be diplomatic, but they’re trying to advance policy measures to protect their corporate interests or protect their personal interests but to the egregious detriment of our country.

Trump has been turned down by nearly every celebrity he’s asked, including Elton John, the Rolling Stones and Vince Neil. Even the Rockettes are snubbing the President Elect. For a man who prides himself with surrounding himself with leggy women, this has to be the ultimate insult.
Surprisingly, Moby did agree to play the inauguration, but only if Trump releases his tax returns, which won’t happen. Moby does have a theoretical playlist, though. It includes Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power,” Green Day’s “American Idiot,” and well, you get the idea. Of course, Trump, with no apparent irony, used the Rolling Stone’s “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” at his rallies and at his convention, so he might not get the meaning of those songs either, Moby, and you know that his followers won’t.
