Johnny Rotten defends Populism, Donald Trump, Brexit and Nigel Farage
The Sex Pistols and PiL frontman talked up the POTUS as a ‘possible friend’ in an interview on British TV.
Sex Pistols and PiL frontman John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten) has endorsed The Donald and supports Brexit, Nigel Farage and UK independence. The punk rock pioneer appeared on ITV’s Good Morning Britain to promote his new book Mr Rotten’s Songbook. In the interview, he told his interlocutors Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid that he had a “fantastic” encounter with Farage after the ex-UKIP leader and Bob Geldof both led opposing flotillas up the Thames. “I wanted to shake his hand because it was silly beyond belief,” Lydon said.
On Brexit, he had this to say: “The working class have spoken and I’m one of them and I’m with them.” He also characterized Trump as a “complicated fellow”, saying that “what I dislike is the left-wing media in America are trying to smear the bloke as a racist and that’s completely not true. There are many, many problems with him as a human being but he’s not that and there just might be a chance something good will come out of that situation because he terrifies politicians.”
He added: “This is a joy to behold for me. Dare I say, (he could be) a possible friend.” Peep the interview below.
