Small 'C' Conservatism Is The New Punk: Lydon Voting For Trump
Former Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon, aka Johnny Rotten, confirmed he will vote for President Trump in November, reasoning that he does not ‘want a politician running the world’, and angering leftists in the process.
While Lydon is British, he also has US citizenship, meaning he is eligible to vote next month.
The ‘Pretty Vacant’ singer told the BBC, in a brilliant and often touching interview, he’s “definitely” voting for Trump, noting “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,” Lydon added.
In a further interview, this time with The Guardian newspaper, Lydon said “I’d be daft as a brush not to” vote for Trump, claiming that the President “really is making the country a bit better,” and adding that “He’s the only sensible choice now that Biden is up – he’s incapable of being the man at the helm.”
“Joe Biden is, in all practicality, senile, and delinquently senile. My wife has Alzheimer’s — I know the symptoms,” Lydon said in the BBC interview. When the BBC host countered Lydon and suggested there is no evidence that Biden is senile, Lydon's response effectively destroyed the interviewer's argument.
When Lydon announced he would definitely be voting for Trump the interviewer could almost not believe it, sounding shocked that anyone could think of Trump as being worthy of voting for, in typical BBC fashion.
On the lockdowns Lydon was also on the money, suggesting: “I don’t think lockdown is doing any good for anybody.” before adding “Wrecking an economy is not the smartest move to cure any illness or virus or disease"
Lydon previously expressed support for Trump back in 2016, after the election, saying “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’s a total cat amongst the pigeons … [He’s] got everybody now involving themselves in a political way. And I’ve been struggling for years to get people to wake up and do that,”
