BILLY CORGAN SAYS HE IS DISAPPOINTED IN OBAMA, DOESN’T TRUST DEMOCRATS OR REPUBLICANS
Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan filmed an interview with Piers Morgan that will air on CNN on Wednesday, above is a clip of the interview. Below are a couple of quotes.
“I’m at the point now where I don’t trust either political party. I don’t see a reasonable third party independent run from anybody who is rational and is going to get there. But the choices we have are so compromised and I just don’t get it, but everybody wants the theater more than they want the reality.”
When asked what he is looking for in a leader, Billy said this.
“Moral compass. And that’s where I’m disappointed in [President Obama], he ran on a moral compass agenda but what happened? I’m sure there’s lots of good reasons, and I’m sure they’ll roll somebody out to counter thoughts like that, but I don’t see it. I travel the world, I’ve seen foreigners really shift on their view of America, and that’s hard for me to take. I still believe in my country, I know that the working class of this country is what this country is really about, that’s what I grew up in these are my people. I see them broken down, that’s hard to watch.”
