Sex Pistols’ John Lydon is Voting for Trump

Never one to shy away from controversy, Sex Pistols’ frontman John Lydon a.k.a. Johnny Rotten has recently said that he would “be daft as a brush not to” support Trump in the upcoming election.

Talking with The Observer, Lydon says Trump is the clear choice for him. “He’s the only sensible choice now that Biden is up – he’s incapable of being the man at the helm,” claims Lydon.

Lydon went on to cite Trump’s handling of the economy as well as remarking on accusations of racism. “I’ve been accused of the very same thing,” says Lydon. “So I’m offended for anybody who’s called that.”

Lydon hails from the U.K., but became a U.S. citizen in 2013 and claims residence in California.
