The rock star Bruce Springsteen let loose on President Donald Trump in a profanity-laced rant about the coronavirus pandemic.
In the latest episode of his “From My Home to Yours” series on SiriusXM’s E Street Radio channel, Springsteen blasted President Trump for the way he has handled COVID-19 deaths, ignoring the fact that the Democratic mayor of his beloved New Jersey has been hit with backlash for forcing nursing homes to accept coronavirus patients.
“With 100,000 plus Americans dying over the last few months and the empty, shamed response from our leaders, I’ve been simply pissed off,” Springsteen began. “Those lives deserve better than being simply inconvenient statistics for our president’s reelection efforts. It’s a national disgrace.”
“Instead of celebrating the joys of summer today, we will be contemplating our current circumstances with the coronavirus and the cost it has drawn from our nation,” he added. “We will be calculating what we’ve lost, sending prayers for the deceased and the families they have left behind.”
Not stopping there, Springsteen then sarcastically dedicated a song to Trump. “So, if you are ready for a rock & roll requiem, stay tuned. I’m going to start out by sending one to the man sitting behind the resolute desk,” he said. “With all respect, sir, show some consideration and care for your countrymen and your country. Put on a f**king mask.”

Springsteen conveniently ignored the fact that under the leadership of Governor Phil Murphy, New Jersey has the second-highest COVID-19 death toll in the country, behind only New York. Murphy has come under fire for an executive order he signed in March that forced nursing homes to accept patients who had tested positive for coronavirus, which only served to lead to even more deaths.

It’s unfortunate that Springsteen has ignored the facts to instead focus solely on his own hatred for President Trump, a truly disturbing pattern to witness.
