Rock legend Bruce Springsteen took aim at President Trump in a new interview Friday, saying the president doesn't "grasp" the meaning of being an American. In an interview on "CBS This Morning," host Gayle King asked Springsteen about a recent Trump rally in which the president bragged that his election victory in 2016 was accomplished without the support of celebrities like Springsteen, Beyoncé and Jay-Z. "You surprised that he's trash-talking you after all this time?" King asked. "Not really. Anything's possible," the New Jersey musician responded. King noted that "a lot of people are very concerned about the direction of the country," with Springsteen agreeing that it's a "very frightening time" in America.

Comments:

Another star, richer than 99.999% of the U.S., lecturing us on what it is to be an American. Bruce, you are so far removed from the daily life of the rest of us you can't even remember what it was like. Go enjoy your money and STFU.

Dittos to the OP’s comments. And.... Bruce “Da Moose” Sprungstone is quite the piece of work, as they say in Jolly Ole Angleland where he fits in much better! A true-blue American he ain’t.

Living proof that wealth, fame and a huge adoring audience does not bring one iota of political insight or common sense. Springsteen also called for Bush's impeachment in the middle of the War on Terror, which we're sure endeared him to al-Qaeda (even if they never listened to his music). Sad that close-minded political correctness is stifling what Springsteen could have accomplished as an artist, had his heart been braver.

Oh Dear!, now I'm totally confused. FTA: president bragged that his election victory in 2016 was accomplished without the support of celebrities like Springsteen, Beyoncé and Jay-Z. "You surprised that he's trash-talking you after all this time?" King asked. Is she saying that saying Brucie is "like ... Bouncie and JZ" is trash talking?

When I want political insights with gravitas my first thought is 'what do celebrities think'? s/ Sorry Brucie! Millions of Americans have decided they like the direction the President is taking us. It is most like the America they recognize. Not some fever swamp fantasy from some jumped up pop singer. You are insulated from the struggles of millions of Americans as well as common sense and reality.

He has a new album, "Western Stars". I watched part of the interview with King. He's singing country music and wearing a cowboy hat at times. I do not remember this about Bruce, not at all. I remember he's a commie. Perhaps he had to pretend to be an American before he came out and lectured Trump. These people..............

Bruce Springsteen is a rock singer. What the heck does he know about geopolitics and running the country? Trump has done business all over the world and was a quick study on how geopolitics works, not to mention him being freaking brilliant at it, give or take a couple minor details. And as a bonus, he loves the country and its people whom he does NOT consider to be deplorable. So shut up and sing, Bruce. You're punching above your weight.

Mr. Springsteen, if you feel this strongly, you should run for office and see how much support you have. Trump did that, marshalled enough support to win the presidency, so he gets to decide.

I don't believe Mr. Springsteen and I could agree on much of anything including his music. I don't think he would like for me to suggest to him what it means to be a musician.....

Seems like it's mostly white, liberal Democrats (i.e. Hollywood types) who see "a frightening time" in America. What I sense, they see the liberal control, and containment (many inner-city areas), strategy slipping away.

In the past he's bragged about keeping close to the street (maybe that was before he began buying million dollar horses for his daughter, horses that others discovered and trained to greatness). I don't know, these celebrities all sing the same political tune. They'd be afraid to sing any other tune, the media would quickly destroy them (with its 90% negative coverage of President Trump). Besides the sameness of their PC/SJW message, the other commonality is their ignorance about actuality and the American people.

Bruce Springsteen, white trash with money. My main memory of him is standing proudly on a balcony in Rome, clad only in his skivvies for the entire world to see his shortcomings. Way to humiliate your first wife too Bruce. At least she had a smart attorney who didn't let you and your nasty mistress try to cheat her. I do wish she would write that book as she threatened you with. She has all her money by now.

So anyone who doesn't embrace a Democrat-supporting celebrity is a trash-talker, is he? That is the inherent assumption in Gayle King's question. You have to wonder if they think before they speak or whether they're simply reading from a script. I'd say the latter.

Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib told Detroit’s chief of police that he should hire only black people as analysts to run their facial recognition software because, she claimed, non-black people think they all look alike. The suggestion came Monday as Chief James Craig gave Tlaib a tour of the Real Time Crime Center, where the department uses facial recognition technology to find suspects. Craig was showing Tlaib how the software works, and how analysts use it to identify and locate individuals. But the tour quickly turned contentious as the freshman Michigan congresswoman made repeated requests that were shot down by the chief.

There appears to be no significant movement to move the U.N.

This is predicated on them being an important ally in the region, and the only democracy in the Middle East.

A photograph from the Mexican side of the river showing the body of Oscar Martinez and his daughter, Valeria, lying face down with Valeria's arms still wrapped around her father’s neck shocked the world late last month amid an already heated debate about illegal immigration in the US.

Clinton was comparing Cummings to his namesake, the Biblical prophet Elijah, who stood up against wicked King Ahab and Queen Jezebel. Clinton said, “Like the prophet, our Elijah could call down fire from heaven — but he also prayed and worked for healing.” She added, “Like that Old Testament prophet, he stood against corrupt leadership of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel.” The crowd roared in acknowledgment.

Students will be taught "how technology and/or science have been and continues [sic] to be used to oppress and marginalize people and communities of color." The framework, the final draft of which is scheduled to be completed by September 2020, will also attempt to "explain how math dictates economic oppression." That's correct: math.
