‘Picture a leader with no f*cking brains’: Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters unloads on Trump at Chicago concert
Former Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters continued his U.S. tour in Chicago Saturday night, turning it into an anti-Donald Trump rally with Floyd favorites and Waters solo songs taking pointed jabs at the president.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Waters left no doubt about his feelings for Trump during his “Us + Them” tour, flashing graphics of the president on the big screens as he sang, “Picture a leader with no f*cking brains,” from his new song, “Picture That.”
The Sun-Times points out the performance of “Pigs (Three Different Ones)” was “simply deployed as a weapon against Waters’ desired target. As Pink Floyd’s familiar inflatable pig prop floated over the hall, video screens scrolled through garish, mocking images of Trump before transitioning to a series of damning quotes. The final onscreen quote from Waters himself again left no room for misinterpretation: ‘Trump is a pig.'”
In an interview last weekend, Waters defended his attacks on Trump, saying, “What we need to [do is] survive his presidency, because it’s totally unpredictable. I don’t think he knows what he’s going to do.”
