Roger Waters Takes On Donald Trump In New Footage From ‘Us + Them’ Tour Rehearsal

first_imgRoger Waters has always been clear about his feelings about President Donald J. Trump. The Pink Floyd bassist has a long history of speaking out against political corruptness, and since before Trump was elected, Waters has been very clear expressing his anti-Trump stance. In October of last year, Waters performed in Mexico City and used the song “Pigs (Three Different Ones)” as a vehicle to express his outrage at the then-presidential candidate. During his Mexico City performance, Waters released hundreds of thousands of inflatable pigs onto the crowd while he performed to a backdrop of images of Trump giving the Nazi salute and surrounded by members of the KKK—Waters famously reposted the footage from that performance on Inauguration Day.Pink Floyd-Inspired Flying Pigs Will Block Chicago’s Trump Tower For A Day This SummerA few months ago, Roger Waters announced a massive world tour dubbed Us + Them, which will see the bassist travel extensively across the United States with over forty dates. Now, footage from tour rehearsals of Waters’ Us + Them tour has been leaked, and the outspoken musician has no plans to stop taking shots at Donald Trump. Again, the song “Pigs (Three Different Ones)” off Pink Floyd’s 1977 Animals was used as the medium to carry out Waters’ Trump takedown. During the eleven-minute performance of the song, neon pop-art images of Trump appeared, depicting the president with breasts, in a Klan hood, wearing lipstick, exposing a micropenis, with the head of a pig, and finally, with the word “charade” written across his face.During the rehearsal performance at Meadowlands Arena in East Rutherford, New Jersey, the screen also showed a giant robotic flying pig as well as some of Trump’s quotes on record about women, his daughter Ivanka, his border wall, 9/11, taxes, and more. The video also projected images of Donald Trump with dollars signs over his eyes and saying the word, “I won!” and ended with the words “Fuck Trump” across the screen. The Trump-themed imagery continued in the songs “Money” and “Us and Them” as well.
