Watch: John Lydon Comes Out In Favor of Brexit, Off Hand Support of Donald Trump

by VVN Music

When John Lydon, then known as Johnny Rotten, and the Sex Pistols released songs like God Save the Queen and Anarchy in the U.K., they were the epitome of anti-establishment music. Today, Lydon is still anti-establishment but with a definite bend to the right.

On Monday morning, Lydon appeared on ITV's Good Morning Britain with the discussion eventually coming around to politics. On the country's exit from the European Union, he said "Where do I stand on Brexit? Well, here it goes: The working class have spoke, and I’m one of them, and I’m with them. And there it is."

As far as the Presidency of Donald Trump, it doesn't sound like he is an all-out supporter but he does find the reactions from the rest of government amusing. "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. There’s many, many problems with him as a human being, but he’s not that, and there just might be a chance that something good will come out of that situation, because he terrifies politicians and this is joy to behold to me."

He went on to say that Trump could even be "a possible friend."

Lydon also talks about having been booked on the Lockerbie flight of Pan Am 103 in 1988 but, at the last minute, cancelling the reservation. 243 passengers and six crew members were killed when a bomb brought the plane down.

Here is the full interview:
