Bruce Springsteen SLAMS Donald Trump in Epic Fashion

by at .

Donald Trump has been campaigning for the highest office in the land for the past 15 months, but according to everyone's favorite New Jersey native (sorry, Chris Christie) Trump is anything but born to run.

Yes, the Boss himself, Bruce Springsteen, has come out in full-throated opposition to Trump, and the rock legend is definitely not mincing words.

Springsteen first made his feelings known during an interview with Rolling Stone published earlier this week:

"The republic is under siege by a moron, basically," Springsteen said when asked about Trump.

"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."

Yeah, Bruce didn't really beat around the coarse, yellow, combed-over bush on that one.

The rock legend was widely criticized by right-wing pundits who presumably went home and took a hammer to their Darkness on the Edge of Town vinyls.

But Bruce ran out of f--ks to give around the time he told Ronald Reagan to stop using "Born in the U.S.A." on the campaign trail (a song about a disaffected 'Nam vet is kind of a strange choice for a rally, anyway), and he's definitely not backing down from the Donald.

Sadly, reports that Springsteen doubled-down on Trump with the most savage of mic-drop disses is erroneous.

Fake Springsteen Tweet

Several media outlets have posted the above screenshot, which, while epic, is not from an account that's not actually linked to Springsteen in any way.

The tweet comes from a handle reading "@Boss49," and as obsessive Springsteen acolytes know, Bruce actually dislikes the nickname that's followed him throughout his career.

So it's the kind of thing that we can all imagine Springsteen saying, but that he didn't actually tweet.

But hey, if you're a fan of Trump vs. celebrity feuds, there's still plenty to keep you entertained.

During Monday night's debates, Trump took another shot at Rosie O'Donnell (for reasons that we're sure made perfect sense in his head).

Earlier today, Trump fat-shamed Kim Kardashian (again, the trolls that live in his cotton candy toupee must've whispered a convincing argument into his ear, but we can't imagine what it was).

So yeah, Springsteen didn't personally call Trump an a--hole on social media.

But so, so many others have.

No word on what Jersey governor and outspoken Trump supporter Christ Christie thinks of his state's biggest entertainment icon bashing Trump...

...but we're gonna guess that you won't see Christie rockin' out at any future Springsteen shows.

Which is a shame, really, because Dancin' Christie is probably the only political story of the past year that everyone can get behind.
