The Sex Pistols singer, aka Johnny Rotten, defended President Donald Trump against the "left-wing media" during a blistering interview with Piers Morgan on ITV's Good Morning Britain on Monday (27Mar17).

Lydon, who became a U.S. citizen in 2013, said, "What I dislike is the left-wing media in America are trying to smear the bloke as a racist, and that's completely not true. There's many, many problems with him as a human being, but he's not that, and there just might be a chance something good will come out of that situation, because he terrifies politicians."

The Anarchy in the U.K. singer went so far as to suggest the President is a "political Sex Pistol" because he's shaking up Washington, D.C. politics.

"(He's) a possible friend," the 61-year-old rocker added.
