Bruce Springsteen Prays And Sends Message To America
He Also Took A Swipe At Trump
In his recent episode of his show From My Home to Yours on SiriusXM’s E Street Radio, Bruce Springsteen couldn’t help but talk about the state of the country especially with the rising death toll from the coronavirus outbreak. Instead of just sharing music from his personal collection, he took the time to offer prayers to everyone who’s been affected by the current global health crisis.
He said, “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. Those lives deserve better than being simply inconvenient statistics for our president’s reelection efforts. It’s a national disgrace.”
He added, “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. We will be calculating what we’ve lost, sending prayers for the deceased and the families they have left behind. If you are ready for a rock & roll requiem, stay tuned.”
And then, he blasted President Donald Trump: “With all respect, sir, show some consideration and care for your countrymen and your country. Put on a fucking mask. This is Bob Dylan with ‘Disease of Conceit.'”
He spent the rest of the show playing music from Neil Young, the Sensational Nightingales, and Johnny Cash, to name a few. The Boss also thanked the health care professionals who have risked their own lives. He wrapped up the show saying, “We send our prayers out for the deceased and our families and to all of you. American citizens unite. Your country needs you. Your countrymen need your care and compassion. And this is our moment. Until we meet again, stay safe, stay strong, mask up and go in peace.”
