Bruce Springsteen reveals new protest song directed at Donald Trump. Well it looks like I'm buying some new music.

Courtesy of Rolling Stone: 

Bruce Springsteen bashes President Trump as a "con man" on "That's What Makes Us Great," his new protest song with longtime collaborator Joe Grushecky. "Don't tell me a lie/ And sell it as a fact/ I've been down that road before/ And I ain't going back," Springsteen sings on the track, Pitchfork reports.

The song premiered Wednesday morning on SiriusXM and Grushecky's website. At one point in the sharply worded tune, Springsteen proclaims, "Don't you brag to me/ That you never read a book/ I never put my faith/ In a con man and his crooks." 

In an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Grushecky said he'd already written the song before initiating the collaboration. "I sent it to him and he liked it," he noted. "I said, 'What do you think about singing on it?' He gave it the Bruce treatment." The singer, who formerly fronted Pittsburgh rock band the Iron City Houserockers, added that Trump "lost [him] the moment he started making fun of special needs people," referring to an infamous speech where the Republican appeared to mimic a disabled reporter. "How could a person like that be president of the United States?"

As we know Springsteen was a huge Hillary supporter, and has become known as the musical voice of the middle class, so it should come as no surprise that he is fervent critic of Donald Trump's.

And the song is pretty good too.

    Love Bruce! He's been openly liberal his entire career and very vocal about it. The haters that complain do not have to buy or listen to his music. Simple as that. I certainly would never listen to or buy Ted pooppants Nugent's music.

    yeah, speaking of the Fat Orange Fuck, this one made me shake with rage:

    On the positive side for Drumpf, 96% of the dipshits who voted for him are pleased with the results.

    We are so screwed.

      Trump Makes Total Ass Of Himself While Trying To Exploit Wounded Vet Receiving Purple Heart (VIDEO)

      Donald Trump decided that he would exploit a wounded vet to make himself look good, but as usual, all he ended up doing was making a total ass out of himself. Again.

      Trump was visiting Walter Reed Medical Center on Saturday. So he decided it would be great publicity if he personally awarded the Purple Heart to Army Sgt. 1st Class Alvaro Barrientos. Things were going pretty well until Trump congratulated him on being wounded in Afghanistan.

      You see, while the Purple Heart is indeed one of the highest honors that can be bestowed upon someone serving in the U.S. military, it also means that the recipient was either wounded or killed. As such, it isn’t exactly the type of thing you “congratulate” somebody on.

      Barrientos was one of four soldiers who was wounded when an Afghan soldier attacked their base in the Helmland province last month. As a result of his injuries, Barrientos lost his right leg, which had to be amputated at the knee. You honor that but you sure as hell don’t “congratulate” it.

      Trump, accompanied by Melania, presented Barrientos with the Purple Heart during a small ceremony at the hospital.

      “I heard about this and I wanted to do it myself,” said Trump. “Congratulations on behalf of Melania, myself, and the entire nation. Tremendous job.”

      He may not think words matter, but here in the real world, they most certainly do. Especially when you are the commander-in-chief awarding the Purple Heart to a service member who just had a leg amputated fighting your country’s wars. Next time Trump decides to use a wounded vet a photo-op, he should be just a bit more careful when choosing his words.

      You can watch Trump congratulate a wounded soldier for having his leg amputated, here:

    Trump lost the moment he exposed himself and took the elevator down to hell.

    Yesterday's March for Science was a huge deal, even a "yuuge" deal but the media has not given it much coverage. Marches took place around the world and many thousands turned out in marches all around the US. Why the silence from the media? Is it that corporate media ownership wants to silence those of us who care about the planet? How can those corporations profit as sea levels rise, weather becomes more and more unpredictable and violent, deserts spread and worse?

    KARMA: Wikileaks Turns On Donald Trump After Administration Threatens To Arrest Julian Assange

    ...Oops. Trump apparently forgot that he was in bed with Wikileaks during the election. He loved them for attacking Hillary Clinton for his own benefit. Now Wikileaks is probably regretting helping Trump because their leader is now being targeted by his administration. And Trump has to be concerned about Wikileaks digging up information on him and releasing it to the public.

    This is what karma looks like. Trump had no problem with Wikileaks when the organization was attacking Hillary. Now we get to see how Trump likes being attacked by them. This ought to be damn entertaining.

    1. Does Trump really no realize that Wikileaks is likely to have damaging stuff on him too?

    ‘Their ass is on fire all day’: Trump’s White House press office has no idea what the president is doing

    ...“Mostly they’re just reactive and incompetent,” explained one White House correspondent. “They don’t have time, man. They don’t have time. Their ass is on fire all day, every day. These are not evil geniuses. … It’s not some sort of wonderful, malevolent plot to destroy the media. These people are in a 24-7 state of panic.”

    According to CBS correspondent Major Garrett, he has found White House press staffers seem to have no idea what TRump is up to and are forced to scramble.

    “It may or may not persist, but I would be willing to give this administration some time to sort that out,” Garrett explained, “because many people arrived with no particular history or professional comprehension of the things they needed to sort out in terms of information flow.”

    Then there is the outright lying.

    One correspondent claims he was warned to question information fed to him on background.

    “They will screw with you,” the correspondent was told. “They will feed you things that are not true.”

    Another added, “I don’t trust anything I’m told by a comms person. If they’re telling me something’s wrong, I’m going to keep checking.”

    Jeff Sessions Falls Apart And Admits That Trump Is About To Break His Mexico Wall

    During an interview on ABC's This Week, Trump Attorney General Jeff Sessions fell apart and admitted that Mexico isn't paying for the wall, but that Trump will get the money, "one way or another."

    ...There are other things that we can do at the border to create revenue that would pay for the wall. There’s no doubt about that.

    STEPHANOPOULOS: But in your discussions with your counterparts in Mexico, they have given no indication at all that the Mexican government is prepared to pay a single cent for this wall (INAUDIBLE)?

    SESSIONS: Well, I don’t expect the Mexican government to appropriate money for it. But there are ways that we can deal with our trade situation to create the revenue for it. No doubt about it.

    Attorney General Sessions was lying about the math. Taking away the taking the tax credits to people who are working here illegally would not save $4 billion a year.

    According to, the actual savings would be $7.6 billion over 10 years, “It’s true that it wouldn’t save $4.2 billion a year, the figure cited by the IG, at least by official scoring of congressional tax experts. The nonpartisan staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation projected that the proposal would reduce federal outlays by $1 billion in 2014, and $7.6 billion over 10 years.”

    The estimated cost of Trump’s wall is $21.6 billion, according to an internal report from the Department of Homeland Security, so taking away the tax credits would only pay for roughly one-third of the wall.

    The Trump administration has come a long way from the promise that Mexico will pay for the wall to trying to ransom Democrats into paying for the wall to using inaccurate math to claim that immigrants will pay for the wall.

    The reality is that Trump promised that Mexico would pay for the wall, and Jeff Sessions just admitted that Mexico isn’t paying.

    Mexico is going pay for the wall is turning out to be another Trump campaign promise that was a lie.
