Former Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters appeared live on CNN and set about dismantling the network’s propaganda claims one by one.
During the Smerconish episode, which is hosted by commentator Michael Smerconish, Waters lands a series of body blows and exposes the CNN audience to the kind of truth they are not usually allowed to hear.
The interview took place a month into the North American leg of Waters’This Is Not A Drill tour, and saw a wide-ranging number of subjects covered, include the war in Ukraine, Taiwan’s relationship with China, and Biden’s war crimes.
Smerconish began the interview by asking Waters why he included Joe Biden in a montage of “war criminals” that feature in his current live set. Watch part one of the interview below:
“Well, he’s fuelling the war in the Ukraine,” Waters responded. “That is a huge crime. Why won’t the United States of America encourage [Volodymyr] Zelensky to negotiate, obviating the need for this horrific, horrendous war?”
Smerconish countered that Waters was looking at the situation backwards, blaming Ukraine for being invaded, but the singer disagreed, referring to the “action and reaction of NATO pushing right up to the Russian border,” comparing the situation to a hypothetical one in which China put nuclear missiles into Mexico or Canada.
After Smerconish responded to suggest that China are currently “too busy encircling Taiwan” to consider such a move, an agitated Waters took the host to task.
“They’re not encircling Taiwan!” he exclaimed. “Taiwan is part of China. And that’s been absolutely accepted by the whole of the international community since 1948 and if you don’t know that, you’re not reading enough. Go and read about it.”
