So Edgy. So Brave: The Boss Lends His Voice To A New Anti-Trump Tune

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

There aren’t many things more annoying than a Bruce Springsteen fan, besides The Boss himself. With a long history of being one of those acts who opines about politics while on stage to his captive audience, The Boss is an unabashed progressive Democrat.

Now, he’s lent his mediocre vocal talent to a new song bashing President Trump. So edgy. So bold. So brave.

Springsteen didn’t write the song but was asked to perform a duet with long-time friend and fellow singer/songwriter Joe Grushecky. Grushecky said he wrote the song after then-candidate Trump made fun of a disabled reporter. Fair enough, I’m no fan of Donald Trump either.

However, what is amusing is the hypocrisy of some of the lyrics after 8 years of complacency because the president was a Democrat.

In one lyric, Springsteen belts: “Don’t tell me a lie / And sell it as a fact / I’ve been down that road before / And I ain’t goin’ back / And don’t you brag to me / That you never read a book / I never put my faith / In a con man and his crooks.”

At least the song suggests “I’ve been down that road before” but I doubt he’s referring to President Obama.

May I suggest making the song bi-partisan and including a lyric with “if you like your plan you can keep it” or “it was because of a video,” or “we’ve got red lines you can cross for miles.” Every president has an encyclopedia of lies and half-truth, obfuscations, and those spurious things known as the campaign promise.

Every president has an encyclopedia of lies and half-truths, obfuscations, and spurious campaign promises. But thank you, Bruce Springsteen, for reminding everyone that there’s more than just our ears to consider in not listening to your music.
