There’s no denying that the inauguration of Donald J. Trump has caused a controversial response in America, and there’s also no denying that Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters has been an outspoken voice against political corruption for decades. Thus, it’s no surprise that Waters would react to the Trump inauguration, much like he reacted the Trump’s candidacy many months ago.
In late September of 2016, Waters held a performance in Mexico City that came packed with a politically charged message. During the song “Pigs (Three Different Ones)” from Animals, Waters shows incendiary images of Trump, with messages like “Trump es un pendejo” (Trump is an asshole) to rally the Mexican fans. He also released inflatable pigs over the crowd of 300,000, and used Trump’s own direct quotes to complement the song’s refrain of “charade you are.”
On Inauguration Day, hours after Trump was sworn into office, Waters shared official footage of the “Pigs (Three Different Ones)” performance. The caption simply reads “A note from Roger: The resistance begins today.” Watch the official video below.
