Rolling Stone reports on Roger Waters latest cunning stunt:
The Wall singer slammed the wannabe wall builder and “Mexicans are rapists” spouter throughout the performance of Animals‘ “Pigs (Three Different Ones),” a song that points a damning portrait of the ultra-wealthy like Trump. During the song, Waters’ large video screens showed artist-made images of Trump toting a machine gun outside the White House, giving the Nazi salute and surrounding himself with KKK members.
Waters also projected several of Trump’s more controversial quotes in Spanish on the large video screens, including the mogul’s assertions that he saw people celebrating 9/11 and his memorable 2011 quote, “I have a great relationship with the blacks. I’ve always had a great relationship with the blacks.”
The Pink Floyd rocker closed out his savaging of Trump by coopting a phrase that’s gone viral in Mexico: “Trump Eres Un Pendejo.” Translation: “Trump, you’re an asshole.”
I am no huge fan of Donald Trump, but let’s be fair. Roger Waters is a huge hypocrite and, yes, a-hole, to invoke the fact that Trump has unsavory supporters.
Not to mention the “great relationship” quote.
