[John Lydon—Johnny Rotten, “Sex Pistols”] said the unconventional outsider President Trump was a type of punk rock politician who was being unfairly attacked by the media establishment.

He dubbed Mr. Trump “a complicated fellow”, adding: “As one journalist once asked me, is he the political Sex Pistol?  In a way.”

When host Piers Morgan described Mr. Trump as “the archetypal anti-establishment figure”, Mr. Lydon said: “Dare I say, a possible friend.”

Liam Deacon “The Working Class Have Spoken

Punk rock icon John Lydon (“Johnny Rotten”) recently opined that President Trump is “in a way” a political punk rocker.  Before dismissing such a notion out of hand let’s see how Trump scores on a punk rock check list:

  1. Anti-establishment?  Check.
  2. Insults and ridicules elites?  Check.
  3. Gives the establishment the heebie-jeebies?  Check.   
  4. Loud and rude at timesResonates with the working classGives media the finger?  Check, check, and big check.

So, there you have it, apparently, the United States of America has its first punk rock president.  A punk rock president with the Divine Hand of Providence upon him—now there’s a sight you don’t see every day.
