During a new interview with CNN, former Pink Floyd frontmanRoger Waters he defended himself against calling the president of the United States, Joe Biden, a “war criminal”.
Waters is currently touring North America with his latest stage show, This Is Not A Drill, having played 15 dates in the region since the beginning of July. for the show, Waters’s stage is filled with giant screens that they show a slideshow of people that Waters has rated as “war criminals”.
Talking with Michael Smerconish CNN, Waters was asked why do you think Biden is suitable for the presentation of slides during your show.
“Okayhe is fueling the fire in Ukraine, to begin with, that is a great crime. Why won’t the United States of America encourage Zelenskyy, the president, to negotiate, ignoring the need for this horrible, horrendous war that is killing we don’t know how many Russians?
Appalled by his perspective, Smerconish implores Waters to consider the role of the United States as “liberators” in the war between the Ukraine and Russia, to which Waters replies: “You have no role as liberators!What are you talking about?”
Smerconish mentions World War II as an example, which Waters is quick to refute: “You (the United States) entered World War II because of Pearl Harbour. You were completely isolationist until that sad, devastating, horrible moment in 1941.”

Pointing out that Waters lost his father in World War II, Smerconish offers a rebuttal of his own: “I would say we were always going to get involved in World War II, and Pearl Harbor pushed us. But thank God the United States got in, right?” ?”
Again, Waters is quick to refute Smerconish’s defense: “But thank God the Russians had already won the bloody war, almost, by then. Don’t forget, 23 million Russians died protecting you and me from the Nazi threat.” .
Smerconish uses Waters’ response as an opportunity to bring the conversation back on topic, opining that “You would think the Russians would have learned their lesson from the war and they wouldn’t have invaded Ukraine, right?”
Waters still seems to disagree, replying: “With all your reading, I would suggest, Michael, that you go away and read some more.and then try to figure out what the United States would do if the Chinese put nuclear-armed missiles in Mexico and Canada.”
“The Chinese are too busy surrounding Taiwan as we speak,” Smerconish chimes in, to which Waters immediately replies, “They’re not surrounding Taiwan, Taiwan is part of China. And that has been absolutely accepted by the entire international community.”international since 1948, and if you don’t know, you’re not reading enough. Go and read about it! You’re believing the hype on your site.”
This is not the first time that Waters has made waves with his views on Biden’s ethical conduct. In April 2020, months before Biden won Trump in the last presidential election, the former Pink Floyd called him a “fucking ball of slime” who is “so weak and has no appeal to anyone.”
