First there was Snoop Dogg's assassination of a clown version of Donald Trump. Then there was Kathy Griffin's picture holding a bloodied, decapitated Trump head. Now, singer Moby's new music video for his song "In This Cold Place" features an image of a cartoon Donald Trump transforming into a swastika, before being blown up.
The video features social commentary on a multitude of issues, from politics, to the food industry, to prisons, to the treatment of animals. (Moby is a committed vegan.) Care Bear-type figures are depicted building a wall and trying to attack other bears who are different colors, and female superheroes are sexually harassed by male superhero figures.
During the election, Moby supported Hillary Clinton and even wrote a scathing letter to America following Trump's victory.
Watch the video here:
It's kind of a sad state of affairs when it's viewed as a step up to only depict the death of the president in cartoon form rather than in real-life form. And while Moby is free to criticize Trump in any way shape or form, it's still rather tasteless and faux-"edgy" to blow him up and call him a Nazi.
At this point, it's all getting kind of tired.
