DEBBIE HARRY has branded U.S. President DONALD TRUMP an idiot.
The Blondie frontwoman lashed out at the American leader, who has continued to divide opinion since taking over at the White House in January (17), during a chat with London’s Evening Standard newspaper.
One of Trump’s most controversial orders since coming to power was banning citizens of seven different Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States, which the federal courts have since struck down, and Debbie is unimpressed with his actions so far.
“I don’t want to go backwards in time; I don’t think isolationism is a good thing at this time in history. I think he’s an idiot,” Debbie fumed to the publication.
“I don’t like the idea of promoting fear to gain popularity. It’s so ugly.”
Debbie believes that music plays a part in protest, though “no one has written an anthem yet” about Trump’s divisive leadership.
Debbie was speaking as it was announced Blondie will be returning to London’s famous Roundhouse stage, 39 years after their gig at the iconic venue helped launch the band to super stardom. They’ll take to the stage on 3 May (17), with tickets going on sale on Friday (24Feb17).
