Legendary singer and songwriter says he isn’t surprised the president is trash-talking him
Bruce Springsteen said the president “doesn’t have a grasp” on what it means to be American. But what about all these liberals? They have been very unAmerican by not supporting our fairly elected president. They have been divisive and hateful towards Americans that don’t agree with them. They are fighting to limit out freedom of speech and right to bear arms. They put illegals before Americans. They are the ones that are unAmerican.
Legendary singer and songwriter Bruce Springsteen says Americans are living in “a frightening time” because of the country’s leadership. In an CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King, Springsteen responded to President Trump’s comments at a earlier this month on how he “didn’t need little Bruce Springsteen” and other celebrities like Beyoncé and Jay Z, who supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.with “
King asked, “So he’s going back to 2016. And this is now 2019. You surprised that he’s trash-talking you after all this time?” Springsteen laughed.
“Not really. Anything’s possible,” he said.
“I know. I mean, a lot of people are very concerned about the direction of the country,” King said.
“It’s just frightening, you know? We’re living in a frightening time,” Springsteen replied. “The stewardship of the nation is — has been thrown away to somebody who doesn’t have a clue as to what that means … And unfortunately, we have somebody who I feel doesn’t have a grasp of the deep meaning of what it means to be an American.”
