Bruce Springsteen on Trump

He's still one of my favorite all-time artists. He has a new XM Sirius radio program (so costs $$$), covered in this CBS News article. Here he makes a insightful point:

"[There's] no time when the president takes off his blue suit, red tie uniform and becomes human, except when he puts on his white shirt and kaki pants uniform and hides from the American people to play golf," Springsteen continues — going on to note the lack of "images of the first family together enjoying themselves together in a moment of relaxation," like the Obamas in Hawaii or the Bush family in Kennebunkport.

"Where'd that country go? Where did all the fun, the joy and the expression of love and happiness go?"

When Springsteen wrapped up the reading, he added his own final line: "On November 3rd, vote them out."
I've always been surprised that not one Trump kid ever told their daddy to shove his money and went off to do what they wanted, whether it was become a stockbroker or computer programmer or build kayaks in British Columbia. The likelihood is that they were as beaten and cowed by their pathological father as he was by his.
