The guitarist in Roger Waters’ solo band, Jonathan Wilson, pointed out that the former Pink Floyd member’s political stance angered fans who also happen to support President Donald Trump, but few of them actually went as far as to walk out of the shows.
Soon after Trump’s election, Waters said he hoped the president would be “removed from office.” His recent run of Us + Them shows featured visuals during the song “Pigs (Three Different Ones)” of Trump as a cross-dresser, a Klansman and a pig. “I find it slightly surprising that anybody could have been listening to my songs for 50 years without understanding,” Waters later said. Asked about his message to attendees who hopes for an escape from politics, he replied, “Go see Katy Perry or watch the Kardashians. I don’t care.”
