Sex Pistols’ Johnny Rotten Likes Trump ‘Because He Terrifies Politicians’ (Video)
Sex Pistols singer Johnny Rotten said Donald Trump could be a “possible friend” while defending the president Monday on ITV’s “Good Morning Britain.”
Rotten said that Trump is a “complicated fellow” but blamed the “left-wing media” for dubbing the president a racist.
“One journalist once said to me, ‘Is he the political Sex Pistol?’ In a way [he is],” Rotten said of Trump. “There are many, many problems with him as a human being but he’s not that [racist] and there just might be a chance something good will come out of that situation because he terrifies politicians.”
He continued: “This is a joy to behold for me. Dare I say, [Trump could be] a possible friend.”
Good Morning Britain co-host and outspoken Trump supporter Piers Morgan chimed in, saying that Trump mirrors the Sex Pistols’ anti-establishment roots.
Despite representing the GOP, Trump is hardly a conventional politician. The Sex Pistols were an English punk rock band that rose to fame in the ’70s, in part, for their anti-establishment message — which explains Rotten’s comparison of Trump to his band.
During the interview, Rotten also backed Brexit and called former UKIP leader Nigel Farage “fantastic.”
