Roger Waters Calls Joe Biden a War Criminal

Amidst his ongoing “This Is Not a Drill Tour,” Roger Waters sat down with CNN’s Michael Smerconish to discuss the overly political themes and messages presented at his concert.

Smerconish began the interview by asking Waters why he labeled President Joe Biden a “war criminal.” “Well, he’s fueling the war in the Ukraine,” the former Pink Floyd member responded. “That is a huge crime. Why won’t the United States of America encourage [Volodymyr] Zelensky to negotiate, obviating the need for this horrific, horrendous war?”

When Smerconish pointed out that Waters was “blaming the party who got invaded,” Waters countered by criticizing NATO for forcing Russia’s hand.

“Well, any war, when did it start? What you need to do is look at the history, and you can say, ‘Well, it started on this day.’ You could say it started in 2008… This war is basically about the action and reaction of NATO pushing right up to the Russian border, which they promised they wouldn’t do when [Mikhail] Gorbachev negotiated the withdrawal of the USSR from the whole of Eastern Europe.”

Waters also dismissed Smerconish’s argument that the US has a role of “liberators.”

Roger Waters is a far left democrat socialist who should be loving all the defunding of police and high inflation we have.

For some fans who went to see Roger Waters perform for his first time in New Orleans in nearly five decades Saturday (July 8), the opportunity to see the former Pink Floyd band-member came with a little political disappointment. As both WBRZ and The Advocate reported, Waters wasn't shy about sharing his distaste of President Donald Trump.

The Advocate reported that, during "Pigs (Three Different Ones)," Waters' onstage display showed various "profane images" of Trump, including one image of him "as a baby, being held aloft by Russian president Vladimir Putin." At the song's finale, the display featured the phrase, "Trump is a pig."
