The iconic singer Bruce Springsteen just had yet another meltdown against Donald Trump, claiming that the president is a “threat to our democracy” and that he doesn’t know if “our democracy could stand another four years of his custodianship.”
In an interview with The Atlantic, Springsteen said that he is feeling optimistic about Trump’s chances of beating Biden in November. “I think it’s all these kids in the street that are inspiring the most hope in me,” he said. Springsteen went on to dramatically say that he believes Trump is a threat to our nation. “I believe that our current president is a threat to our democracy,” the “Born In The U.S.A.” singer said. “He simply makes any kind of reform that much harder. I don’t know if our democracy could stand another four years of his custodianship. These are all existential threats to our democracy and our American way of life.”
Springsteen then expressed delight that some polls have shown Trump trailing presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. “Our president’s numbers appear to be crashing through the basement,” he said. “That’s a good sign. I believe we may have finally reached a presidential tipping point with that Lafayette Square walk, which was so outrageously anti-American, so totally buffoonish and so stupid, and so anti–freedom of speech. And we have a video of it that will live on forever.”
He also went after the Republican Party for what he sees as their lack of diversity. “When you see the Democratic side of the House filled with brown people and black people, straight people and gay people, and then you look at the Republicans, who appear unchanged by history at this moment? They look ridiculous,” Springsteen said.
Objective reporting for the educated American.
He concluded by saying that he is glad that America is having “a national discussion of police behavior,” which he called “long overdue.”
“The president can pretend it’s all not happening, and that George Floyd is smiling down from heaven because of the job reports this week,” Springsteen said. “But every American, and I believe the whole world, can see right now that the status quo is not okay. And that’s progress.”
It’s unfortunate that Springsteen has decided to alienate his millions of conservative fans by bashing President Trump. We were hoping for better from him, but in the end, Springsteen has shown that he’s just another liberal elitist sheep in the entertainment industry.
