Electro producer compares the Republican's popularity to the country's dirty habits: cigarettes and junk food.
Moby has written a scathing open letter to America after the country elected Donald Trump President.
An avid Hillary Clinton supporter, the electro producer frequently praised the former First Lady’s years of experience during the 2016 Presidential campaign. He also looked forward to her shattering the glass ceiling and becoming America’s first female Head of State.
During the campaign, he aimed plenty of criticism at her opponent, too, branding Trump “an actual sociopath” and releasing a pair of satirical anti-Donald Trump songs called ‘Trump Is On Your Side’ and ‘Little Failure’.
Now Moby has written an open letter for Billboard in which he likens the popularity of Trump to the country’s dirty habits: cigarettes and junk food.
In the letter, which is titled “What the Fuck is Wrong With You?”, he goes on to call Trump a “dim-witted, racist, misogynist” who “has no policy proposals”.
“Trump Is on Your Side” by Moby and the Homeland Choir //30days30songs.com “no sane person would hire an angry, inexperienced clown to fix their plumbing, so why would any sane person think of hiring an angry, inexperienced clown to run the country?”
Seeking to find a silver lining, he adds later: “I guess there will be some cold, bitter schadenfreude in spending the next four years watching Middle America wake up to the fact that Donald Trump is an incompetent con-man.”

Meanwhile, the world of music has largely responded in shock and horror to Trump’s victory in the election.
Lady Gaga even took to the streets outside Trump Tower in New York City in protest after it emerged that the billionaire businessman had defeated Hillary Clinton.
Robert De Niro has addressed previous comments he made about wanting to punch Trump in the face. “I can’t do that now. He’s the president and I have to respect that position,” he said during an interview on Jimmy Kimmel’s US chatshow.
Parks And Recreation favourite Leslie Knope has even written an open letter to Americans in a bid to help them better understand Trump’s victory.
