Surprise! Bruce Springsteen wants to go on the record about his dislike for Donald Trump:
The “Born to Run” singer, who has candidly expressed his disapproval of the president-elect before, discussed his fears regarding Trump’s presidency in a wide-ranging conversation on an episode of Mark Maron’s “WTF” podcast released Monday.
“I’ve felt disgust before, but never the kind of fear that you feel now,” Springsteen said. “It’s as simple as the fear of, is someone simply competent enough to do this particular job? Do they simply have the pure competence to be put in the position of such responsibility?”
I’m always amused by folks who have supported Obama all this time suddenly worried about things like incompetence.
I was a huge fan of Springsteen’s music while I was growing up. It resonated with me on many levels and I believe that it influenced me as much or more than any other music I listened to.
It’s too bad that his vocal political stance has sucked most of the enjoyment out of it. And makes me question the values that were used to create the music in the first place.
