Legendary rock star Bruce “The Boss” Springsteen has been a loud and outspoken critic of President Trump long before the election was decided. After the news broke last night that a “tired and fatigued” Trump yelled at the Prime Minister of Australia and then hung up on him halfway through the call, Springsteen decided to publicly mock our President’s disgraceful faux-pas and apologize to the nation of Australia at the same time.
Set to play a concert in the city of Melbourne, Springsteen decided to open his show with a cover of the 1962 pop hit “Don’t Hang Up” by the Orlons. “We stand before you, embarrassed Americans, tonight. We’re gonna use this to send a letter back home” said Springsteen to a roaring crowd.
We appreciate Springsteen taking the time to personally apologize to the people of Australia. It’s going to take a long time for us to live down the shame that these divided states of embarrassment have brought upon ourselves.
