Singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen, whom everyone used to believe was a die-hard patriot, has revealed his true colors — and, boy, are they icky.
During a performance Thursday at a concert in Melbourne, Australia, Springsteen shamelessly told the crowd that he was essentially embarrassed to be an American, as reported by Fox News.
“We stand before you embarrassed Americans,” were the exact words he spouted.

This was not the loudmouth singer’s first attack on America. According to ABC News (Australia), Springsteen made a similar statement during another concert in Adelaide, Australia, on Monday but added to it a rant about President Donald Trump’s moratorium on immigration from terror-prone nations.
“Tonight, we want to add our voices to the thousands of Americans who are protesting at airports around our country the Muslim ban and the detention of foreign nationals and refugees,” he said. “America is a nation of immigrants, and we find this anti-democratic and fundamentally un-American.”

So not only did Springsteen reveal himself to be “Ashamed in the U.S.A.” (a play off his song “Born in the U.S.A.”), but he also took a swipe at his country’s president while speaking to foreign audiences. What an ignorant and ungrateful has-been — one too dimwitted to realize that Trump’s moratorium is not even a “Muslim ban.”
Springsteen was also an unabashed supporter of failed Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton. During the election last year, he both repeatedly predicted Trump would lose to Clinton and slammed the businessman candidate for being a “moron” and “toxic narcissist.”
But what then would you call someone who uses his platform at a concert in another nation to proselytize about his political beliefs? Perhaps a “moron” or “toxic narcissist”? Oh, the irony.
