Moby appeared on this weekend’s Real Time With Bill Maher to discuss his new memoir, Then It Fell Apart — his second memoir after 2016’s Porcelain: A Memoir and his fourth published book overall. Maher is apparently a big fan of Moby’s music, praising his multi-platinum fifth album Play and mentioning this month marks the 20th anniversary of the album, which purportedly still holds the record for the highest-selling electronica album of all time.
They discussed Moby’s sobriety, vegan burgers, climate change, and the kids these days, specifically the music younger people are listening to now. That part comes early in the video above if you want to watch Bill Maher go full “old man yelling at cloud” about modern music.
But the most surprising part of the interview starts about four minutes in, when Maher says, “I ask this of all the guests we have on the show. Have you ever rubbed your penis against Donald Trump?” In perhaps (perhaps) a first, Moby answered yes.
“There was one night, it was about 2001, and I was out at a party and I was very drunk; I’m sober now,” Moby — who’s made it clear in the past he’s not a Trump fan — explained. “I was with some friends and they were telling me about a game they used to play in college called knob touch, and I really shouldn’t be divulging this in public, but it is in the book. Knob touch is when you take your flaccid penis out of your pants, and these days my penis is always flaccid, and you walk around a room and you brush your flaccid penis up against people indiscriminately — it’s not sexual, there’s no gender involved.”
He went on to say he “knob touched” only one person, after his girlfriend at the time dared him to. It just so happens that was Donald Trump. “So I’ve only rubbed my flaccid penis against one person in the entire world and that man is currently on a golden toilet in the White House tweeting about something.”
