INDIO, Calif. (AP) — Roger Waters made his feelings about Donald Trump abundantly clear during a politically-charged performance at the Desert Trip music festival Sunday night.

The 73-year-old singer-songwriter blasted the Republican presidential candidate in music and images. As Waters performed the Pink Floyd song "Pigs (Three Different Ones)," Trump's face appeared on the massive video screen above the stage.

Meanwhile, a parade-sized 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 followed up with "Another Brick in the Wall (Part II)."
