Multimillionaire liberal rock and roller Bruce Springsteen has made millions singing songs about the plight of the working class which would seem to some to be more than a bit hypocritical considering his own lifestyle.
Springing from humble roots in a working-class New Jersey home, “The Boss” became a cultural icon and is still rocking after over four decades. He has also increasingly shown his preference for the corrupt modern incarnation of the Democratic party and has rubbed elbows with heavy hitters like former President Barack Obama.
But despite his overt liberalism, Springsteen still lives in the reality-based world and fessed up that President Trump will likely be reelected due to the dearth of viable Democratic party candidates which he lamented in an interview with the UK Times.

Rock legend Bruce Springsteen said in a recent interview that he thinks President Donald Trump can win a second term, saying that Democrats have no “obvious, effective” candidate to beat him in 2020.
“I don’t see anyone out there at the moment… the man who can beat Trump, or the woman who can beat Trump,” Bruce Springsteen said in an interview with The Sudnay Times.
“You need someone who can speak some of the same language [as Trump] … and the Democrats don’t have an obvious, effective presidential candidate,”
Springsteen also expressed some displeasure with the results of the 2018 midterm elections, saying, “Yeah, it was nice to get the House back, but I’d like to have seen a much more full-throated [rejection] of the past two years.”
The Grammy-winner also defended Trump supporters, saying, “I think that there are a lot of reasons people became Trump voters.”
Springsteen told The Times:
You had severe blows to working people in the 1970s and 1980s as all the steel mills shut down. Then you had an explosion of information technology. These are life-changing, upsetting occurrences. You can find yourself in a country that you may not feel part of, or you feel that your [concerns are] being dismissed. So [you’ve had] an enormous amount of insecurity and instability. Add to that, someone comes in and plays on your racial anxieties, and blames an enormous amount of this on the ‘other’ from the southern side of the border, and you’re going to have an audience for those views. I basically think that [the problem] is the incredibly rapid pace of change that’s occurred in the United States that’s gone unaddressed by both administrations, Democrat and Republican.
However, Springsteen also expressed skepticism that tariffs might not work to get jobs back into the United States.
The “Born to Run” singer, who campaigned for Barack Obama, has not hesitated to rip President Trump.
In an interview published this week, Springsteen accused President Trump of committing a “crime against humanity” by “dividing” Americans.
The UK Times article is HERE but it’s behind a paywall so pony up if you want to read it.
He’s absolutely right because the Democrats don’t give a rat’s ass about the white working class. Instead, they are totally fixated on identity politics and opening the borders to millions of illegal aliens which isn’t going to EVER sell in those critical Rust Belt areas that went for Trump and drove a dagger through Hillary’s heart.
It’s a freaking clown show and it takes someone like Springsteen to point out that the emperor has no clothes.
