Paul McCartney on Trump: ‘We’ve Got a Mad Captain Sailing This Boat We’re All On’

Sir Paul McCartney is weighing in on  Trump, telling People that his new song “Mad Captain” is about the president.

“So, I just wanted to make a song that would talk about that and basically say, ‘Occasionally, we’ve got a mad captain sailing this boat we’re all on and he is just going to take us to the iceberg [despite] being warned it’s not a cool idea.’”

And just who could the “Mad Captain” be?

“Obviously it’s Trump,” McCartney says before adding, “but there’s plenty of them about. He’s not the only one.”

He also addresses climate change on his new album and says the song “Despite Repeated Warnings,” scolds climate change deniers.

“People who deny climate change… I just think it’s the most stupid thing ever,” McCartney said.

McCartney is no stranger to taking on politics, earlier this year he was at the anti-gun March for Our Lives and said that “One of my best friends was killed in gun violence right around here, so it’s important to me.”
