Bruce Springsteen Has Never Been Afraid More Than He Is Now That Trump Will Be President
If you thought that Donald Trump had no one else to offend, scare off, or just generally piss off, you were wrong.Credit
The Boss himself, Bruce Springsteen, has vocalized his genuine concern for the future state of the union under the president elect during an interview on Marc Maron’s podcast “WTF” this past Monday. The 67 year old rock star and rock & roll hall of famer had been seen with with Hillary Clinton during her campaign. He must have had a Long Walk Home after election day.
Springsteen said how he felt that he had previously “felt disgust” towards specific elections before, “but never, never the kind of fear that you feel now.” Among those that voted for the first time this cycle, and those that chose not to vote, it seems fairly agreeable that there is plenty of fear to go around, and for different reasons. Many people in the United States felt that neither party that had reasonable chance of winning put forth a candidate that represented them in a way worthy of running a country of 300,000,000 people.
Aside from his considerable liberal bias, Springsteen that not all Trump supports share some of the same observably negative qualities as the one they follow, that there are “plenty of good, solid folks that voted for Donald Trump”, and that the American public realized post-election that there are millions of others that live in the same country that have differences in political preference, and separate ways of processing the election results.
And Trump hasn’t even taken office yet. Springsteen commented on the fact that the president elect hasn’t even been inaugurated yet, and that uncertainty and anticipation of what will take place during Trump’s next four years as the leader of the most powerful country in the world is truly an insight worthy of fear.
Springsteen primarily questioned Trump’s ability, saying that, all ideologies aside, “It’s simply a fear of, ‘is someone simply competent enough to do this particular job… Do they simply have the pure competence to be put in a position of such responsibility?” All in all, Trump can’t be blamed for trying to run for office in the first place; He was Born In The USA, too!
