Donald Trump’s massive failure as president has been cemented in a song. “The Boss” Bruce Springsteen released an anti-Trump number titled “That’s What Makes Us Great.”
The entertainment industry does not like Donald Trump. From the very beginning, most Hollywood celebrities expressed their disdain for him.
Music legend Bruce Springsteen does not like Trump either. He called the orange fuhrer a “moron” in a Rolling Stone interview.
Better yet, he loudly demanded that Trump stop using his song “Born in the USA” during his campaign events.
Now, Springsteen wrote a new song about Trump called “That’s What Makes Us Great.” Springsteen’s co-collaborator Joe Grushecky told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that the two decided to write the song in January.
In the song, there are some lyrics that refer to Trump’s dislike of reading. They are:
“And don’t you brag to me/That you never read a book/I never put my faith/In a con man and his crooks.”
And the chorus, which takes a more positive note, is:
“It’s up to me and you/Love can conquer hate/I know this to be true/That’s what makes us great.”
During his inauguration, Trump could not attract any celebrities to perform. Even those who supported him said “no,” knowing that involvement with a racist and misogynist like Trump would be career suicide.
Some of those who did perform were not happy about it. Some members of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir openly expressed their displeasure for having to participate in his inauguration ceremony.
Since his election, Trump’s narcissism, corruption, and ignorance are comedic fodder. Alec Baldwin portrays him on Saturday Night Live, which irritates Trump to the point of calling for the show to end.
Other celebrities such as Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah of the Daily Show, and Seth Myers criticize Trump nightly. The criticism pays off for them and their networks.
All three shows, as well as CNN, saw huge increases in their viewership. Ridiculing Trump is now a profitable business!
We’re glad to see Springsteen putting his voice in the Resistance.
