Waters denounces Trump

Former Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters made his feelings about Donald Trump and Israel abundantly clear during a politically charged performance at the Desert Trip music festival Sunday night. The 73-year-old singer-songwriter also denounced war and addressed the Black Lives Matter movement in his set that closed out the three-day classic rock concert in Indio, Calif. Waters blasted the Republican presidential candidate in music and images. Trump’s face appeared on a massive video screen with the word ‘‘Charade’’ across it as Waters performed the Pink Floyd song ‘‘Pigs (Three Different Ones).’’ Meanwhile, a parade-size balloon shaped like a pig floated above the audience. It had Trump’s face painted on the side with the words ‘‘Ignorant, lying, racist, sexist pig.’’ Waters also voiced support for the Palestinian-led BDS movement, which calls for boycotts and sanctions against the Israeli government.

Tamblyn talks assault

Actress Amber Tamblyn says she was assaulted by a former boyfriend and felt compelled to speak out about it by Donald Trump’s 2005 remarks bragging about groping and kissing women. Tamblyn says on Instagram that her ex-boyfriend grabbed her by her hair and crotch and carried her out of a nightclub. She says the part of her body that Trump ‘‘described as something he’d like to grab a woman by, was bruised from my ex-boyfriend’s violence for at least the next week.’’ (AP)
