Johnny Rotten

LONDON — Count punk pioneer Johnny Rotten among President Donald Trump’s supporters.

The former Sex Pistols front man, whose real name is John Lydon, told ITV’s “Good Morning Britain” that “there’s many, many problems” with Trump as a person, but he’s not racist. Lydon said Trump “terrifies politicians and this is joy to behold.” He said he looks at Trump as “a possible friend.”

Lydon is a U.S. citizen, but also weighed in on the politics of his native Britain, saying he’s in favor of the UK’s vote to leave the European Union last year. He said, “the working class have spoke, and I’m one of them and I’m with them.”
