Billy Corgan Brands Donald Trump as “Cool”


Separated at birth? Only their hairdressers know for sure…

Love me some Smashing Pumpkins. The Rolling Trump Thunder Revue? Not so much. But if you mashup the two, I am fascinated. Rock ‘n’ roll and politics is never boring.

Rolling Stone reports:

During a Q&A with fans before a Cincinnati concert earlier this month, Corgan was asked what he thought about the first Republican debate, at which point the rocker lauded the mogul’s ability to take the political spectrum and “fuck it up.” “I think what’s cool, and I’m not saying I agree politically, but I think what’s cool is Trump’s running chaos theory,” Corgan said (via Alternative Nation). “He’s forcing a lot of things out into the open, so they can’t control this, whatever that control is,” Corgan continued. “It’s like the music business: everybody gets controlled, and somebody comes along that fucks it all up. So I think it’s good that he’s fucking it up, because whether or not he’s the guy, obviously the political class doesn’t want him there, it’ll open it up to a bigger dialogue.”
