Classic rock-loving Republicans have always had a rough go reconciling their musical tastes with the overwhelming liberal bend of most iconic rock artists. (It can even lead to madness -- National Review's Top 50 Conservative Rock Songs of All Time list from 2006 is a tragicomic exercise in pretending bands from the Who to the Sex Pistols are tangentially aligned with Republican values.)
But even so, it's hard to imagine someone deeply loving Pink Floyd's catalog and buying a ticket to Roger Waters' 2017 concert run only to be aghast upon realizing the show is rife with imagery lambasting Donald Trump. And yet, Tuesday (Sept. 12) night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, one lonely man spent a good deal of Waters' set loudly booing the former Floyd musician's virulent anti-Trump imagery, which recurred throughout and took center stage during an ardent run-through of, naturally, "Pigs (Three Different Ones)." While his boos were audible, they were nevertheless overpowered by the overwhelming cheers from most of the audience, who relished Roger's unflattering depictions of Trump via doctored pictures and real-life quotes (many of which he road-tested pre-election at Desert Trip in 2016).
