The “Dancing in the Dark” musician, who has long been a vocal critic of Trump, read a poem by Elaine Griffin Baker on his SiriusXM radio show yesterday (28 October).
“There's no art in this White House,” read Springsteen. “There’s no literature, no poetry, no music.”
“There are no pets in this White House, no loyal man’s best friend, no Socks the family cat, no kids’ science fairs.”
In the verse, Springsteen bemoaned the alleged lack of creativity and sensitivity in the current White House administration.
“No Obamas on the beach in Hawaii moments, or Bushes fishing in Kennebunkport,” he said. “No Reagans on horseback, no Kennedys playing touch football on the Cape. Where'd that country go?
“We are rudderless and joyless. We have lost the cultural aspects of society that make America great. We have lost our mojo, our fun, our happiness, our cheering on of others.”
The full poem can be read on Springsteen’s website.
The Boss recently released his 20th studio album to rave reviews, including a five-star write up from The Independent.
The album, entitled Letter To You, is expected to be his 12th UK No 1 record.
There is less than a week left until the US presidential election, with polling suggesting that Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are set to lose to Democratic candidates Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
