The Who Singer Said ‘A Dead Dog’ Could Have Beaten Hillary Clinton In The Election
Roger Daltrey, longtime lead singer of The Who, said that Democrats lost the presidential election when they gave Hillary Clinton the nomination.
In an interview with NME on Wednesday, the British rocker spoke about the Brexit decision and took a little bit of time to weigh in on Donald Trump and how he ended up in the Oval Office.
“Let’s put it this way,” Daltrey began, “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 [Hillary Clinton] up. A dead dog would have won it against [her], look at that.”
As for the Brexit decision, Daltrey didn’t want it to happen, but he has a positive outlook on it now.
“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,” the London native explained.
“I’m sad we voted how we voted, but I think we have to go with it now,” he continued. “This country will always be all right, I don’t worry about it. You know it’s going to be bumpy on the way — we expected that; the ones that voted to get out. But Iceland had it a bit bumpy when they went bankrupt, but oh not now.”
Daltrey and The Who are preparing for a string of benefit concerts at the end of March on into April at the famed Royal Albert Hall in London. The band will be performing several nights for the Teenage Cancer Trust, an organization that Daltrey has supported which seeks to help teenagers diagnosed with the awful disease.
