Roger Waters of the band Pink Floyd has publicly slammed President Donald Trump as a "tyrant and mass murderer," adding that the president's supporters have turned the United States into a "fool's hell."

Waters also said that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the only Democratic presidential candidate who could beat President Trump.

The British rocker spoke earlier this week in New York at a Q&A session following a screening of his concert film, Us + Them, according a report from Rolling Stone. He launched into an unhinged rant about President Trump when asked why more Americans aren't upset about the current administration.

"This is a man who has failed at fucking everything in his life except becoming the biggest ... tyrant and mass murderer and mass destroyer of everything that any of us might love or cherish in the whole [world], only because he has the power," he reportedly said.

"Unfortunately, he has his finger on the button on it, and he's right. In 'Pigs,' when we put up that he has a bigger button and it works, it does. And it's working all over the world, murdering brown people for profit."

During the conversation, Waters called the U.S. a "fool's hell" because of Trump.

"The United States of America is not a fool's paradise; it's a fool's hell," he said.  "And watching [the film], it reminded me that the great battle is the battle between propaganda and love. And propaganda is winning. And sadly, the buttons of the propaganda machine are being pushed by people who are fucking sick. These sick, sociopathic fuckers, all of them, every single one of them. Believe it or not, Donald Trump is somewhere down here, floundering around in the muddy water at the bottom of the oligarchic pool."

Waters is preparing to embark on a North American tour this year that will take him to cities including New York, Los Angeles, Nashville, Atlanta, Orlando, Cincinnati, Raleigh, Milwaukee, and Minneapolis.

Rolling Stone reported that the audience of mostly media types cheered when Rogers said that Sen. Sanders could beat President Trump.

He said that if more Americans were passionate about politics, "you wouldn't have Donald Trump as a president, you wouldn't be having all this nonsense with the Democratic primaries, with them trying to destroy the only candidate who can possibly win against Donald Trump, Sanders."

It's baffling that people like Waters don't understand this type of unhinged hyperbole does not appeal to the average American.

MSNBC even had to concede recently that Trump's approval wasn't hurt by recent beltway scandals or even impeachment because of things like the economy, stock market gains, and 401ks looking good.

If you want to oppose Trump, you don't look at what people like about his presidency and then counter with calling him a mass-murderer who has turned America into hell on earth.


Again, this shit does not register to anyone with a rational brain.

Maybe he should sell them billions in high tech weapons. Then you'd defend him to the death.

I saw the last Wall tour he did three times. The anti Trumpism was over the top but didnt detract from the shows, which were epic. Just got tickets for the MSG shows in June, Roger's a moron but he still puts on a fantastic show.

this kind of stuff only helps Trump. Its easy to characterize the left as crazy right now and this helps.
