Roger Waters slams 'a**hole' Donald Trump while performing Pink Floyd's 'Pigs' in Mexico

Pink Floyd legend Roger Waters attacked Presidential hopeful Donald Trump at his two shows in Mexico City this week.

During his performance of the Pink Floyd classic ‘Pigs (Three Different Ones)’ at Foro Sol stadium on Wednesday and Thursday night, images of Trump holding a submachine gun appeared on the backdrop.

When the song came it conclusion, the words ‘Trump eres un pendejo’ flashed across the screen – ‘Trump you are an asshole’.

During the song, the floating pig above the audiences heads was emblazoned with words of protest against Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.

Elsewhere, Roger took another dig at Trump during ‘Another Brick in the Wall, Part II’ when school children joined him on stage wearing T-shirts with “tear down the wall" written on them – an apparent reference to Trump’s proposed wall between the US and Mexico.

On Wednesday night, Roger also launched a tirade against Peña Nieto where he referenced missing civilians in the government’s war against drug trafficking.

“Your policies have failed. War is not the solution. Listen to your people, Mr. President. The eyes of the world are watching you,” Waters said in Spanish.

The highly politicised shows also saw Roger project an image of Celtic fans holding Palestinian flags during their recent Champions League qualifier against Israeli side Hapoel Be’er Sheva.

Celtic were fined £10,000 by UEFA yesterday for the fans’ actions.

Roger is playing a free show at Zocalo Square, Mexico City on Saturday night (1st October).
