The Who's Roger Daltrey

Singer Roger Daltrey of The Who voiced support for Brexit and took a shot at Hillary Clinton in an interview published Wednesday.

In an interview with NME, Daltrey declared that withdrawal from the European Union will prove to be the right decision for the U.K.:

“We are getting out, and when the dust settles I think that it’ll be seen that it’s the right thing for this country to have done, that’s for sure.”

Daltrey attributed Brexit to “much more” than just immigration issues:

“It’s got nothing to do with any of the immigration issues or any of that for me. It was to do with much more. The majority of this country felt that their voices weren’t being heard. It would have been nice to do a deal with Europe but they didn’t want to do a deal, and they sent Cameron back with a bag.”

The singer then took the opportunity to comment on the 2016 presidential election, saying that Democrats lost the election because they put up a candidate so unpopular that “a dead dog” could have beaten her:

“On other pieces of politics, let’s put it this way: when you say that middle America and the Democrats lost it, but Trump didn’t really win it – because Democrats threw it away by putting [Hilary Clinton] up. A dead dog would have won it against [her], look at that.”

As for Trump, Daltrey used profanity to declare that the president needs to wash his mouth out in order to clean up his language – and get a haircut.
