Former Sex Pistol Johnny Rotten might be a purveyor of anarchy in the UK, but it seems he’s pretty chill with… fascism in the US?
The punk trailblazer has just revealed he’s planning to vote for Donald Trump in the upcoming election, saying he’d be “daft as a brush not to”.
“He’s the only sensible choice now that Biden is up – he’s incapable of being the man at the helm,” Rotten, real name John Lydon, told UK newspaper The Observer.
“Bad person or not. I don’t want a politician running this world anymore,” he added to the BBC.
“He’s an individual thinker, I’ll give him that for a start. He’s not the most lovable fellow on God’s earth, but I cannot see the opposition as offering me anything by way of a solution.”
To boot, it seems Rotten, who became a US citizen in 2013, also sympathises with Trump for being branded a racist?
“I’ve been accused of the very same thing so I’m offended for anybody who’s called that.”
