In an interview on Good Morning Britain, Sex Pistols’ band member Johnny Rotten had nothing but good things to say about both Brexit and President Trump. On the daytime program, the host attempted to grill Johnny on President Trump with the same tired and unsubstantiated claims of racism; Johnny immediately shut down these accusations and went off on the current liberal narrative in America, VIA Spin:
“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 added. “There are many, many problems with him as a human being but he’s not that, and there just might be a chance something good will come out of this situation because it terrifies politicians. This is a joy to behold for me.”
When Morgan pointed out that Trump’s anti-establishment streak mirrored the Sex Pistols’ approach to music, Rotten replied: “Dare I say, [Trump could be] a possible friend.”

Rotten also described former UKIP leader Nigel Farage and his Brexit movement as “fantastic.”
“The working class have spoken and I’m one of them and I’m with them,” he said.
