Bruce Springsteen, The Boss, just dropped a smoking hot diss track against President Donald Trump in which he refers to the Commander in Chief as a “con man.” Someone call the fire department because our Pres just got burned.
Springsteen, one of the most universally beloved music icons in the whole friggin’ world, worked on the song with Houserockers frontman Joe Grushecky. The song will debut on SiriusXM this week.
And it doesn’t pull any punches.
The track is a clear take down of President Trump and his administration, covering everything from Trump’s travel ban to his “alternative facts.”
Lyrics include: “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.”
Springsteen was never shy with his opinion of Trump during the election last year, referring to him as a “moron” in an interview with Rolling Stone.
“The whole thing is tragic. Without overstating it, it’s a tragedy for our democracy,” he said.
“When you start talking about elections being rigged, you’re pushing people beyond democratic governance.
“And it’s a very, very dangerous thing to do. Once you let those genies out of the bottle, they don’t go back in so easy, if they go back in at all.”
Agree or disagree, you can’t argue that Springsteen is anyone’s puppet. The guy speaks his mind with absolutely Zero F—- Given. Gotta respect that about him.
