Looking for another brick on the wall? Well you might fall flat after Roger Waters, formerly of Pink Floyd, stated that President Donald Trump is a "tyrant and mass murderer" whose supporters have turned America into "fool's hell." He also said that Bernie Sanders could beat Donald Trump in an election.
Not sure if he's writing lyrics to a song for the darker side of the moon or he's venting.
Either way, he's British and won't be voting in an American election (unless he sneaks one in for a Democrat).
Hope you're ready to get deep inside Roger Waters and his unhinged political rant...
The British rocker spoke earlier this week in New York at a Q&A session following a screening of his concert film, Us + Them, according a report from Rolling Stone. He launched into an unhinged rant about President Trump when asked why more Americans aren’t upset about the current administration.
“This is a man who has failed at f-cking everything in his life except becoming the biggest … tyrant and mass murderer and mass destroyer of everything that any of us might love or cherish in the whole [world], only because he has the power,” he reportedly said.
“Unfortunately, he has his finger on the button on it, and he’s right. In ‘Pigs,’ when we put up that he has a bigger button and it works, it does. And it’s working all over the world, murdering brown people for profit.” (Breitbart)
Oh good Lort, Roger, calm down.
Maybe more Americans aren't upset with the current administration because they are actually pointing out all the corruption that's been going on and revealing to Americans all the shady business that politics really is. Politicians don't really care for people one way or the other - it's just a job to them. Politicians do and say whatever they must to keep their job, and the average American believes in their nonsense and eats it up. It's another reason why we need term limits - so the really good liars in politics can stop blabber-mouthing their way to becoming a lifelong politician.
But no, Roger Waters continues and he has a potty mouth.
During the conversation, Waters called the U.S. a “fool’s hell” because of Trump.
“The United States of America is not a fool’s paradise; it’s a fool’s hell,” he said. “And watching [the film], it reminded me that the great battle is the battle between propaganda and love. And propaganda is winning. And sadly, the buttons of the propaganda machine are being pushed by people who are f-cking sick. These sick, sociopathic f-ckers, all of them, every single one of them. Believe it or not, Donald Trump is somewhere down here, floundering around in the muddy water at the bottom of the oligarchic pool.”
Waters sounds angry and bitter and it's unclear why.
Maybe his clothes came out of the dryer still wrinkled - who really knows what triggers the celebrities when they get all huffy-puffy about politics.
And honestly, who cares?
