The frontman behind one of England’s most successful rock bands got candid on his thoughts about Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
When NME asked The Who’s Roger Daltrey for his opinion on President Donald Trump, he chose to focus on his looks over his political stance.
“His f--king haircut! He needs it cut and as my mother would say, ‘wash your f--king mouth out,'’’ said the 73-year-old singer. “On other pieces of politics, let’s put it this way: when you say that middle America and the Democrats lost it, but Trump didn’t really win it — because Democrats threw it away by putting [Hillary Clinton] up. A dead dog would have won it against [her], look at that.”
But Daltrey didn’t just focus on American politics. He also spoke to NME about the impact of Brexit on his native England, adding that it is “the right thing for the country to do.”
“We are getting out, and when the dust settles I think that it’ll be seen that it’s the right thing for this country to have done, that’s for sure,” he explained.
British Prime Minister Theresa May has started the formal process that will divorce the United Kingdom from the European Union, overturning four decades of integration with its neighbors.
While many disagree with the controversial move, Daltrey said it will help the country be better heard.
“It’s got nothing to do with any of the immigration issues or any of that for me,” he explained. “It was to do with much more. The majority of this country felt that their voices weren’t being heard. It would have been nice to do a deal with Europe, but they didn’t want to do a deal, and they sent [David] Cameron back with a bag.
“I’m sad we voted how we voted, but I think we have to go with it now,” he added. “This country will always be all right, I don’t worry about it. You know it’s going to be bumpy on the way — we expected that; the ones that voted to get out. But Iceland had it a bit bumpy when they went bankrupt, but oh not now.”
The Who is currently gearing up to perform at London’s Royal Albert Hall for Teenage Cancer Trust from March 29th to April 2nd.
