The Boss Releases His Latest Calling Donny Trump A ‘Con Man’


Seems pretty clear to us here at TheField Tower. Bruce has had more than enough of The Dump and has recorded a song called, “That’s What Makes Us Great”. It was written by his long-time associate Joe Grushecky.

It takes the piss out of Dump and Sean Spicer and their “alternative facts” load of cobblers. At one point Springsteen sings: “Don’t tell me a lie/And sell it as a fact/I’ve been down that road before/And I ain’t going back,” and: “Don’t you brag to me/That you never read a book/I never put my faith/In a con man and his crooks.”

Bruce has never had any time for Dump and back in September he said, “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. And it’s a very, very dangerous thing to do. Once you let those genies out of the bottle, they don’t go back in so easy, if they go back in at all.

“The ideas he [Trump]’s moving to the mainstream are all very dangerous ideas – white nationalism and the alt-right movement. The outrageous things that he’s done – not immediately disavowing David Duke? These are things that are obviously beyond the pale for any previous political candidate. It would sink your candidacy immediately.”

 The lyrics in full are:

That’s What Makes Us Great

Grushecky:

They come from everywhere
A longing to be free
They come to join us here
From sea to shining sea

Together:

And they all have a dream
As people always will
To be safe and warm
In that shining city on the hill

Grushecky:

Some wanna slam the door
Instead of opening the gate
Aw, let’s turn this thing around
Before it gets too late

Together:

It’s up to me and you
Love can conquer hate
I know this to be true
That’s what makes us great

Springsteen:

Don’t tell me a lie
And sell it as a fact
I’ve been down that road before
And I ain’t goin’ back

And don’t you brag to me
That you never read a book
I never put my faith
In a con man and his crooks

Together:

I won’t follow down that path
And tempt the hands of fate
Aw, let’s turn this thing around
Before it gets too late

It’s up to me and you
Love can conquer hate
I know this to be true
That’s what makes us great

Springsteen:

In the quiet of the night
I lie here wide awake
And I ask myself
Is there a difference I can make?

It’s up to me and you
Love can conquer hate
I know this to be true
That’s what makes us great
