Listen to loudmouth Johnny Rotten say Trump is NOT a racist, support Brexit

It’s no secret that Johnny Rotten has a provocative mouth.

Listen to loudmouth Johnny Rotten say Trump is not a racist, call him a “possible friend” and say he supported Brexit in a interview on Good Morning Britain.

Morgan then called him “the absolutely archetypal anti-establishment character in politics,” where Lydon added, “Dare I say, a possible friend.”

At the beginning of the interview, Lydon also called his experience meeting UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage ‘fantastic’. He also said of Brexit: “The working class have spoke, and I’m one of them, and I’m with them. And there it is.”
