Why are we talking about Bruce Springsteen on this website—well he and Jay Z did campaign for Barack Obama back in 2012. But more recently, the Boss candidly expressed his feelings on Cheeto Jesus aka Donald Trump and they are pretty accurate, and worth sharing. 

The Rock & Roll icon called Trump a moron. Tell everyone, especially if they’re undecided about who to vote for.

Says Rolling Stone:

What do you make of the Trump phenomenon?

Well, you know, the republic is under siege by a moron, basically. The whole thing is tragic. Without overstating it, it’s a tragedy for our democracy. 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. The ideas he’s moving to the mainstream are all very dangerous ideas – white nationalism and the alt-right movement. The outrageous things that he’s done – not immediately disavowing David Duke? These are things that are obviously beyond the pale for any previous political candidate. It would sink your candidacy immediately.

Salute to Bruce Springsteen.
