Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters aims uniquely Scottish insult at Donald Trump during Glasgow gig

PINK FLOYD'S Roger Waters has used the Glasgow leg of his European tour to lambaste President Donald Trump, doing so in typically Scottish fashion.

On Saturday night, during the second of two shows in the city, Waters used some Scottish vernacular to describe the US President.

On the Battersea Power Station stage display, inspired by the cover of the band’s album Animals, the musician beamed the phrase ‘Trump is a Bawbag’.

The word bawbag, slang for scrotum, is used as an insult in Scotland.

The jibe was reportedly met with applause from the audience at the SSE Hydro.

In 2017, ‘bawbag’ featured on signs during an anti-Trump protest in Scotland.

Following that, West Wing actor Richard Schiff helped start #PresidentBawbag trending on Twitter.

President Trump is due to visit Britain on July 13 for a three-day trip.

It is not yet known if he will visit Scotland, where he owns two golf courses, during the trip.

Waters meanwhile is no stranger to activism, having previously voiced his support for the BDS movement against Israel.
