‘He Went There!’: During Concert, Springsteen Gives Trump An Epic ‘F*ck You’ And Fans Are PSYCHED

Bruce Springsteen had an understandably political message on the anniversary of 9/11 that has his fans roaring with cheers – and Chris Christie probably quietly weeping.

At a concert in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the Boss took a moment in between songs to call Donald Trump out for trampling on the Constitution. He even got a little present for the Republican nominee – a song in his honor. Addressing the crowd, Springsteen explained:

“Somebody gave me a copy of the Constitution of the United States…it says ‘Fuck Trump’ on the front. This is for him.” The crowd reportedly went wild.

He then launched into a rendition of “Long Walk Home,” a song about an economically ravaged town with failing businesses. (Perhaps a pointed reference to Trump’s financial failures in Atlantic City?). Moreover, the title could also be interpreted as an overt call out to Trump’s electoral future.

If Trump and Chris Christie were heartbroken, Springsteen’s fans weren’t. Even as the concert went on, attendees lit up social media with praise for the decision to give Trump the middle finger.


Springsteen has been a long-time Democrat, and has frequently clashed with Republicans who try to exploit the working class people he often sings about. Ronald Reagan infamously misunderstood Springsteen’s “Born in the USA” to be a patriotic anthem rather than a scathing critique of America’s failing institutions. When Reagan tried to use it in his campaign, it led to one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll moments in political history. A showdown between a rock star and a politician who not only didn’t “get it” but represented everything the song meant criticize. Reagan lost.

He called Ronald Reagan out. At a concert. In Pittsburgh. Sometimes history repeats itself.
