Roger Waters Worries Hillary Clinton Might "Drop a F---ing Nuclear Bomb"

Englishman Roger Waters gave Rolling Stone the gift of some commentary on American politics, and it either did or didn't disappoint, depending on your nonsense threshold. While the Pink Floyd cofounder advocates for Bernie Sanders on the Democrat side of the current presidential race, he's happy to share conflicted thoughts about Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The magazine writes that Waters finds Hillary to be "far better alternative than any of the Republican candidates by a long, long way," but it's not all feel-good vibes:

"Hillary worries me. I have an awful worry that she might become the first woman president to drop a fucking nuclear bomb on somebody. There is something scarily hawkish about her, and she has that politician look down of, 'You are never going to get a word of truth out of me.'"

While you parse through that quote and debate whether it's misogynist, across-the-board anti-politics, both or neither, revisit T.I.'s messy, also nuke-referencing comments about Hillary ("I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally"), which he almost immediately recanted.
