LONDON—Roger Daltrey says “a dead dog” would have beaten Hillary Clinton in the U.S. presidential election.
The Who’s legendary frontman tells the British music news website NME that U.S. President Donald Trump “really didn’t win” the election because Democrats “threw it away.”
The British singer also is speaking in favour of his country’s move to leave the European Union. He says when the dust settles from the Brexit move, “I think that it’ll be seen that it’s the right thing for this country to have done.”
Daltrey’s comments follow those of British-born punk legend Johnny Rotten, who told Good Morning Britain earlier this week that he supported the Brexit vote. The former Sex Pistols singer said the working class has spoken and he’s “one of them and . . . with them.”
