Appearing on “The Late Show” on Monday with Stephen Colbert, to promote his new book with Obama, singer Bruce Springsteen took a shot at Republicans Governor Ron DeSantis and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Colbert asked Springsteen to explain his book stating “these are treacherous times with much at stake.”
The “Born in the USA” singer replied “Do you want Marjorie Taylor Greene, Matt Gaetz, Ron DeSantis and our ex-fearless leader deciding the fate of the American experiment?”
“That’s what I define as treacherous,” Springsteen said, a close ally of Obama and critic of Trump.
Springsteen later told Colbert “I have to remain optimistic and seeing them — my kids were out at the George Floyd, Black Lives Matter protests — seeing the diverse group of young people in the streets the day after the election.”
“It’s a cliche, but I think that’s what keeps me optimistic,” the 72 year old singer added.
Meanwhile, during an awkward joint interview with Springsteen, Obama said Bruce Springsteen’s primarily white fans may have loved the band’s saxophone player Clarence Clemmons “on-stage” but if they ran into Clarence at a bar, they’d call him “the n word.”
Springsteen went along with Obama, and said “oh yeah.”
WOW. Barack Obama can't Help Himself. He says BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN FANS loved Clarence Clemmons but only "on-stage"–if the "primarily white audience" ran into Clarence at a bar, they'd call him THE N-WORD. Barack–you don't have a damn CLUE about this country. pic.twitter.com/X4xwQU5ld8
