“What I dislike is the left-wing media in America are trying to smear the bloke as a racist,” said Lydon “and that’s completely not true. There’s many many problems with him as a human being, but he’s not that, and there just might be a chance that something good will come out of out of that situation, because he terrifies politicians, and this is joy to behold.”

“Dare I say, a possible friend?” he laughed.

Rotten also weighed in the controversial vote for Britain to leave the European Union (aka Brexit). “The working class have spoke and I’m one of them and I’m with them,” said Lydon.
