Sex Pistols frontman, John Lyndon, recently said President Trump has “many problems,” but he’s still a “possible friend,” not a racist.
“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,” he told Good Morning Britain. “There’s 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. And this is joy to behold.”
Then Piers Morgan, the host, called Trump “the absolutely archetypal anti-establishment character in politics.”
To this, Lydon said, “Dare I say, a possible friend.”
Lyndon also may have said Trump is the new Sex Pistols. The New York Times asked him if he though conservatism is the new punk rock.
““Aaaaaah!” he responded. “No! [laughs] Aaaaaah! There’s better analogies than that. Is Donald the new Sex Pistols? I don’t know, and I don’t think you need to tie things together that way. It’s too easy. That’s lazy intellectualism at work, that is.”
In fact, Lyndon is now an American citizen. Does that mean he came here because of Trump?
“Frankly, I came to America because, yes, [Britain] might have been the country I was raised in, but it was very fast becoming the country I was being erased in,” he said. “The censorship, the police raids, it was absurd, and America seemed to have welcomed me. I became an American a few years back. I’m one of the few that beat the wall.”
