    Okay, but that's not what you wrote.

    Not during the setlist, during Pigs 3DO. An attack on Trump/Putin/Un would not have been confusing or incoherent. I thought it was a missed opportunity and overkill by just targeting Trump (and then again during Money). Just my opinion, no right no wrong.

    .
    Aiming for maximum impact is fine, but catering to the lowest common denominator and being so juvenile about it? While it says a lot about our society and many of those in attendance I simply expected a higher road from Roger.

    Trump, Putin and Un.. 3 dictators with differing ideologies Trump is envious of the control that Putin and Un have. that's why he calls them strong and his allies weak. I agree that would seem more balanced and I would personally prefer more politics with deeper insight but I am willing to give Roger the benefit of the doubt as to whether he has full input and total control on the visuals (beyond initial outline), or it is largely handled by the art directors with Roger having it run under his nose before production. I have heard him say in the past that he trusts his staff choices (with regards to artwork) and rarely dislikes the outcome or makes changes. not saying that is the case or to make excuses as this is slightly complacent but I wouldn't let it bother me in the grand scheme of things as the music is his main craft and his top priority. the scenery might constantly change but the songs remain the same (no Zepp).

    There we go a little bit of peaceful agreement.. now lets have a hug

    Me: "Yes! one day I will die just like all the rest".
