"The Boss" weighs in on Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Rolling Stone: What do you make of the Trump phenomenon? 

Bruce Springsteen: Well, you know, the republic is under siege by a moron, basically. The whole thing is tragic. Without overstating it, it's a tragedy for our democracy. When you start talking about elections being rigged, you're pushing people beyond democratic governance. And it's a very, very dangerous thing to do. Once you let those genies out of the bottle, they don't go back in so easy, if they go back in at all. The ideas he's moving to the mainstream are all very dangerous ideas – white nationalism and the alt-right movement. The outrageous things that he's done – not immediately disavowing David Duke? These are things that are obviously beyond the pale for any previous political candidate. It would sink your candidacy immediately.

The interviewer noted that while Springsteen clearly dislikes Trump that he has not exactly come out strongly in favor of Hillary either. Springsteen answered that partially by suggesting that he does not think he has been approached by her campaign, but then he answered a follow up question with a little more certainty.

Rolling Stone: Is there a lack of enthusiasm for Hillary on your own part? 

Springsteen: No. I like Hillary. I think she would be a very, very good president.

You know that right now super Springsteen fan Chris Christie is thinking "Oh God, I've made such a terrible mistake."

Yes I know that the opinions of celebrities are not supposed to matter, but I also know that they most certainly do.

    As an indie, myself, I'm not coming out strong for Hillary either but will vote for her and NOT as a "lesser of two evils."

    I trust you'll live blog the debate Monday with wine, Gryph? I just can't bring myself to watch.

      I'm not watching either. I have already made up my mind who I'm voting for so nothing that happens at this so-called debate is going to change my mind. I'm probably the only one who thinks this way.

      I'm not sure if i'm going to watch the debate.But there is nothing either one of them could do to change my mind.I really admire Hillary.She has spent her life trying to make things better for people.But if they were running a ticket of Werewolf / Frankenstein I would vote for them before trump.

      I'm gonna watch. I've never watched one before so I think this might be the one to see. My first vote ever was cast in 1984 while at college voting absentee and I voted for Mondale/Ferraro.

      What's the point?

      Each camp will proclaim their candidate the winner and list the weaknesses of the loser opponent.

      I'll wait for Colbert to recap and read the "unbiased" reviews.

    Christie never makes mistakes, or rather, never admits them. He still thinks that if he can throw just the right lie out there, and get the Massah elected, he will be made Attorney General and make his bridge problems go away forever. Pitiful. Anyone who thinks Trump is in any way fit to be POTUS need only look at the thugs and criminals he's surrounded himself with, as well as the creepy women he lets speak for him on TV. And then there are his delusional entitled children.

      All is takes is a little research online to debunk the crap he spews. How lazy is this country and the media.

      The nightmare that won't go away.

      Sigh, here's how. Talked at an anti Hillary yesterday. Tina's illogic was off the charts. Tina: We shouldn't be policeman to the world, but Hillary was wrong to say we shouldn't put boots on the ground. I think Obama's a secret Muslim trying to destroy the US. Me: (in shock) why do you say that, because of his skin color? Tina: No look what he's done. Me: you mean cut the unemployment rate in half, gotten health insurance for millions more, pulled u. Out of a massive recession, reduced the deficit? If that's destroying to you try, give me more of it. Tina: sputter, sputter, well, deductibles are still high.

    I hear Gennifer Flour is looking for a new gig. She's trying to make a move for Mark Cuban. Isn't he married?

      She's 66 years old! I seriously doubt that she's "making a move" for anything except her handy cane :-)

    The look on Christie's face in that pic made me laugh loudly enough to scare my cat. It looks like an over the top sitcom reaction shot.

      Trumplethinskin is all about retaliation and settling scores in everything he does, just like the Mistake by the Like in Wasilla.

    2. Anonymous2:21 PM

      Mistake By Tke Lake indeed. Reminded of the fair video with the teacher holding up the "Worst Governor Ever" sign being berated by Mini-Me and $arah because education is NOT important. Fleecing! That's where the $$ are!

      That won't work on Hillary.

      But that strategy works great on Trump.

      Too bad Hillary couldn't get Marla Maples for the front row.

    Just when you think trump couldn't get any lower he does.This was a vicious move on his part.Also really dumb. He is going to piss off every woman who has ever been cheated on. I will only maker her more sympathetic. Also if he thinks this woman from over 25 years ago will rattle Hillary then he never saw her being grilled by a bunch of partisan misogynists at the 11 hour Bengazi hearing.Trey Gowdy had flop sweat and HRC was unfazed.

    Bruce Springsteen must be the least of Chris Christie's problems at the moment with the new revelations concerning Bridgegate. He may not be charged with anything but his goose is cooked in the court of public opinion.

      Get out the drip pans. That's a load of rendered fat.

    May I ask where Christie's left hand is in that photo, and why is Donald wearing his "union jack" suit,? Poor Christie, a state disaster hits his state and he's looking for some Bruuuuuuce time. The look on his face behind Comrade Trump is almost as priceless as "Baseball Uniform" bridge clogger Christie.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
