The MAGA party at its core is punk, being a generic liberal that toes the line isn't punk.

It is 2017*, that photo. Why are the media suddenly picking it up again and running with it as if it is a new story?

PS

Correction, October 2018 and here is the proof: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6275077/Sex-Pistol-Johnny-Rotten-sports-Make-America-Great-t-shirt-puffs-cigarette.html

Even Wikipedia are reporting that it is from 2020!

He can show support for Trump all his wants. But vote for him? When did Johnny become American citizen? That's news to me. Do you know anything about it?

Thanks, I'm gonna check more about it

He joined the American race because he liked Obama haha.

I think Rotten just hates politicians. He is supporting Trump now because Trump is a ''non-politician'' politician. He fundamentally knows deep down it is a swizz but Rotten is like this - he flip-flopped on Brexit also - and there is an element of British humour and (punk rock) rebelliousness about the whole thing, playing with people's mind - one could say ''trolling'' in modern parlance. 

Let's face it, the only way to be punk is to support Trump as Biden has the entirety of celebritydom and the mainstream media on his side. 

But @Len Cnutis your Mr Lydon expert.

Trump is litterally a celebrity.

Biden is litterally a politician.

Also, I don’t think you’ve watched the video. I decoded Lydons pro Trump stance handily just above. Lol

Merely my interpretation, and I do not claim to be the forum's resident Rotten expert.

This is bullshit.  I just heard about this and didn't believe it but here it is.  I can't vote in person.  Democrats are definitely stealing this election.  Game over.  You fuckers win.  Confirm Barron to the Supreme Court and hopefully Republicans keep the majority in the senate or these scumbag democrats will change the rules and pack the court.  This is the beginning of socialism.  We're fucked.

Yes, John Lydon's picture with the MAGA t-shirt is old. I suppose, as it often happnes, someone on twitter remembered it, then the media picked it up and then tweeter picked it up back.

The interviews are recent though. In this one he says he supports Trump because he himself was accused of racism so he stands by everyone else who is accused of it:

https://www.theguardian.com/music/2020/oct/11/john-lydon-interview-i-could-be-wrong-book-nora-wife-carer-trump-brexit

So, according to Johnny, no one should be accused of being racist (even if they really are, I guess) :lol:

Well I agree with that. There are a few who like to throw the racist accusation around on here. The left's current method of political discourse I believe: when in doubt, shout ''racist''.

So why can't you vote by mail?

I literally posted a mail in ballot from the UK last week so it's not that hard. :shrugs:

Fun fact. Kanye is actually on the California ballot paper as a Vice Presidential candidate. I almost ticked the box for him when the missus wasn't looking. :lol:

I can walk into Home Depot, Lowe's, or go have dinner indoors.  Churches are open indoors.  I want to pull the lever and know my vote counts.  If we all wear masks why can't we vote in person?  Voter fraud that's why.  A guy I work with got two mail in ballots for himself and one for his dog.  I'm not kidding.  How can anyone trust this flawed system?  Anyone who isn't afraid of the .0001 chance of dying from covid should not have their right to vote in person taken away by a liberal governor.

So you can't vote by mail? Also assuming what what you're saying is true how does this disadvantage Trump? Are they only sending ballots to pets of Democrats? :lol:

Vote by mail should be optional, not mandatory.  If liberal pussies are afraid to go vote in person let them mail it in.  I don't trust a liberal governor to put people in a position to accept or deny a vote if they don't verify a signature.  I should be able to see my vote go through when I pull that lever on election day.  When I track the mail in vote it'll tell me where it is and if it's denied but it won't tell me who it counted for.  How do we know those people doing the counting aren't putting Trump votes down as Biden instead?  There's no way to ever know if we don't see it go through in person.

Mail in voting has been a thing in every election for decades. There has never been any evidence that it leads to significant voter fraud. Trump even set up a commission to investigate voter fraud after the 2016 election to substantiate his excuses for losing the popular vote by a couple of million. Surprise surprise it was disbanded with little fanfare because he was talking bollocks. Now he's sowing the seeds of doubt to excuse getting his arse kicked in November with no factual basis whatsoever. Anyway, what do you care? We posted my wife's ballot to California to vote for Biden which will have about as much of an impact as your Trump vote in New Jersey surely? Is it that close? :shrugs:

It's not only about Trump.  Trump's chances of winning New Jersey are slim to none but other seats are on the ballot as well.  New Jersey does vote red from time to time.

But even on the down ballot candidates your mail in vote will be received and counted along with all the rest. I mean what actual evidence can you cite that makes you think your vote won't be counted? The only issue I can think of is that it might not get where it needs to go as Louis DeJoy has been doing everything he can to hobble the postal service at your boy's behest.
