Roger Waters on Presidential Election: 'The Choice Is Graphic'

Pink Floyd architect visits Eric Ripert's 'On the Table' show

By |

In a new video released yesterday, Pink Floyd mastermind Roger Waters pays a visit to Chef Eric Ripert's On the Table series to learn to cook langoustines. The nearly nine-minute clip starts with the two of them sharing some wine and discussing the food, but it quickly evolves into the kind of thought-provoking conversation you'd expect to share with Waters over dinner.

Among the highlights, Waters reminisces about childhood meals and his mom being a communist, which leads that into his thoughts on this year's presidential election. "The choice is graphic," Waters says, contrasting President Obama's self-made story with Republican challenger Mitt Romney, "a guy who was born into privilege." Talking further about the financial divide in America Waters says, "The sewers are clogged with the greed of powerful men."
