Author Don Winslow is teaming up with rocker Bruce Springsteen on his next anti-Trump campaign video aimed at torpedoing his chances at winning reelection in November.
Bruce Springsteen, meanwhile, has made no secret of his disdain for Donald Trump. Earlier this year, he suggested that American democracy could not survive a further four years of this administration.
“I believe that our current president is a threat to our democracy,” he said in an interview with The Atlantic. “He simply makes any kind of reform that much harder. I don’t know if our democracy could stand another four years of his custodianship. These are all existential threats to our democracy and our American way of life.”

“His song “Born in the USA” is a anti-American anthem trashing America.
Bruce and his anti-American “songs” are pure garbage. It’s time to take
out the trash.”
“This phony constantly sings about being for the working man but parties with the Obamas aboard David Geffen’s yacht. A hypocrite and a total sell out.”
“He has been a big supporter and friend of John Kerry for years.”
“In his interview with Rolling Stone, Springsteen said “white privilege and white supremacy run through the heart of America”. I’m sick of this crap… I’m sick of these leftist, mega-rich, opinionated morons blasting their own country because it’s the popular thing to do.”
“Bruce Springsteen millionaire rebel. Hey Bruce, why don’t you write a song about how to dodge taxes in NJ by claiming your mansion is a farm?”
“I continue to be saddened to witness that so many musicians from the “Peace, Love and Understanding” era are anything but peaceful, loving or understanding towards anyone not of their like-minded ways.”
“I never fell for his schtick. I remember when “Born in the USA” came out and people were saying ‘Oh, yeah, man, what a great song about being proud to be American.” Listen to the words…it’s negative…not one good thing does he sing about . The ‘boss’ my ass.”
“Screw you and that phony anti-American and his phony working class hero shtick. He’s brought a lot of shame on many, many of us Jerseyites. Believe it.
We’re not all libs here. In fact I live in the same county that hatched that dirtbag and its a county that votes red consistently.”
“It’s funny how the left idolizes Springsteen’s vision of America while simultaneously telling us all how racist and evil America’s past and present is. It’s even funnier when they tell us all how horrible Trump is and he plans to destroy America…despite America being evil and racist. Which is it? If it’s so bad them D-Trump deserves a medal for destroying it. If it is so wonderful and Trump will destroy everything, then MAYBE it isn’t as evil as you say it is.”
