Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon has expressed his support for Donald Trump, asserting that the President is the only sensible choice.
The endorsement came as a shock given that the singer, stage name Johnny Rotten, previously revealed that he’d backed Democratic hopefuls Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in past US elections.
John Lydon told a news outlet that he now backs Donald Trump because of the President’s policy to the economy.
The London born musician became a US citizen in 2013 and presently lives in Los Angeles and he said that he’d be as daft as a brush not to because Donald Trump was the only sensible choice now that Joe Biden was up, and that he was unfit of being the man at the helm.
The paper suggests that John Lydon started supporting Donald Trump after the President was accused of racism and he said that he’d been accused of the same thing himself, so he was insulted for anybody who was called that, and he went on to add that of course, he was anti-racism.
In 2008, members of John Lydon’s entourage were accused of being racially offensive during a backstage brawl at a reunited Sex Pistols gig, and when asked about the murder of George Floyd, John Lydon replied that it was awful but that it didn’t mean that all police were hostile or that all white folk were racist and he summed it up by saying that all lives mattered.
When asked if he would be voting for Donald Trump on 3 November, he produced a MAGA cap and stated that he would be.
The 64-year-old, who’s also been verbal in his backing of Brexit, has previously been photoed sporting a red MAGA T-shirt.
Reading the article, I was expecting there to be a valid explanation, but I was so disgruntled, but then it’s Johnny Rotten, it was never going to make any sense – he’s a Trump supporter, there is no reasonable explanation.
And it does seem pretty tragic that he’s so despairing to stay relevant and solvent that he’ll say anything to get the hype and it seems that it’s been determined that we should listen to what celebrities have to say about politics, but it seems that we’ve already listened to what celebrities and the elites have to say and believed it.
However, celebrities, including Johnny Rotten are also human beings and citizens and some of them, not necessarily including Johnny Rotten are highly educated, savvy, knowledgeable and considerate people, whose views on important matters can be valuable.
But then, Johnny Rotten has always been a bit off the wall and there’s certainly an attention-seeking facet to his personality, so it’s not surprising to read this, and he’s entitled to his opinion, although many will not agree with him in the slightest, but then I wouldn’t expect anything else from an anarchist and those people agreeing with him should remember that Johnny Rotten isn’t supporting Donald Trump, he’s supporting anarchy.
Donald Trump has some impressive supporters it seems and Johnny Rotten has obviously taken to many drugs, poor soul – we should be so grateful that a washed-up, drug-addled punk rocker from Great Britain has finally shown us the way out of this debacle.
And it’s such a shame that Johnny Rotten has literally assumed his character’s surname and sold out his original intent which was to be anti-establishment, and as Freddie Mercury once said, ‘another one bites the dust’.
