Springsteen Mocks Trump’s Call With Australian PM By Covering “Don’t Hang Up” In Melbourne
Our idiot-in-chief managed to piss off Australia, of all places, in a reportedly disastrous phone call with the country’s Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. Vocal Trump critic Bruce Springsteen happened to be performing a show in Melbourne as the fallout from that call was being dissected by the media, and he mocked the President’s latest terrifying blunder by playing “Don’t Hang Up”: “We stand before you embarrassed Americans tonight,” he said before playing. “This was a song from 1965 by the Orions, we’re gonna use it to send a letter back home.” Watch video below.
E Street guitarist Steven Van Zandt also apologized for our country’s national embarrassment:
Australia is, was, and always will be one of the USA's best friends and closest allies. Apologies for today's temporary embarrassment.
