In a recent interview with the Australian press, rocker Bruce Springsteen vowed he would be packing up and leaving the United States for Australia if President Donald Trump wins re-election. Springsteen even had the gall to smear working-class Americans, who he blames for the Trump presidency. Well, that’s when poor Bruce got a brutal smackdown he never saw coming. You’ll love this.

Bruce Springsteen will pack up and flee to Australia should Donald Trump win re-election in November, he warned Thursday during a virtual interview with Down Under media outlets.

The singer-songwriter also added he thought Trump would be no match for former Vice President Joe Biden, predicting he would lose.

“I love Australia,” Springsteen gushed to the Australian press. “Every time, we have nothing but good times down there. It’s always a treat to come. Love the people, love the geography, great place for motorcycle trips, it’s close to our hearts.”

He then made his prediction about the 2020 presidential election outcome.

“If Trump is re-elected – which he will not be; I’m predicting right now he’s gonna lose – if by some happenstance he should be, I’ll see you on the next plane.”

Springsteen has never shied away from entering the political domain while offering free character assessments of Donald Trump.

The Born in the USA rocker joined fiction author Don Winslow to push the Atlantic‘s discredited report claiming Trump called American servicemen “losers” and “suckers.”

The tired allegation is repeated in their new anti-Trump ad focusing on flipping Pennsylvania for Joe Biden. The 71-year-old songwriter’s contribution to the piece appears to be his Oscar-winning song “Streets of Philadelphia,” from the 1993 movie Philadelphia, which plays on the soundtrack.

Springsteen was also caught blasting working-class Americans. 

The aging rocker said that he found the last few years under Trump to be a “very disturbing time” and that “overall, as somebody who was a born populist, I’ve got a little less faith in my neighbors than I had four years ago.”

Springsteen was referring to New Jersey which many of his songs reflect on his middle-class roots growing up in the mill-town of Freehold. Springsteen claimed his Catholic upbringing rather than political ideology most influenced his music.

Those mill-town workers in Freehold, who are likely Trump supporters, he now can’t stand. Springsteen admits to being a “populist” his whole life, and he is struggling with his need to deny the biggest populist president we have ever seen in America.

Springsteen also referred to the Republican National Convention (RNC) as “horrific,” claiming that it was “just seeded with constant lies and total distortion of the American idea.”

Bruce got his clock cleaned by those same middle-class Americans on social media. 

“So, another celeb, Bruce Springsteen says he might move to Australia if @realDonaldTrump wins a second term… GOOD. the average IQ of the U.S. would immediately increase!” tweeted Twitter user “Sonnywadsworth.”

“Political illiterates Bruce @springsteen and Tommy Lee @MrTommyLand promise to flee to Australia and Greece respectively if Trump is reelected, not realizing that both nations currently have right-wing conservative governments. #Trump2020Landslide,” Tweeted Dr. Steve Turley.

“Hey Bruce ….. ANd Australia is WORSE in terms of regulations, curfews, fines and shutdowns for Covid19 so good luck with that Springsteen,” tweeted David James Guidice.

“@springsteen don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out to Australia,” tweeted “Honey Badger.”

“Bruce Springsteen said he’d move to Australia if Trump wins. Pack your bags another lefty gone that is great for us!!!” tweeted Rocky Muszynski.

“Hey Springsteen I’ll buy your one-way ticket to Australia if you leave now. Trying to convince your fans not to vote for Trump not cool. From your ex fan,” tweeted Twitter user “Jim.”

“@springsteen get your reservations made to Australia!! You’re going to need them!!” tweeted Phil Wolfe.

“⁦@springsteen Oh please, please, please leave. We have no need here for some geriatric singing songs from his heyday back in the 80’s. Take all your shit with you too. Take ⁦@johnlegend as well. Flaunt your rich celebrity lifestyle and go!” tweeted “Personal Jesus.”

“@springsteen when @realDonaldTrump wins the election, I hope you make good on your promise to move to Australia. And don’t let the sweet door of freedom smack you in the ass on the way out. I’m sick of you #hasbeens flapping your gums. #buhbye #ByeFelicia,” tweeted “The Real Tommy Dee.”

In June, the E Street Band frontman called President Trump a “threat to our democracy” and worried if “our democracy could stand another four years of his custodianship.”

All of which means nothing for Springsteen given the outcome of next month’s vote and a Trump win when the joke could be on him. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison is an avowed conservative politician and a huge fan of Donald Trump and his politics.

Makes ole Bruce look rather ignorant. 

“There are many larger, I suppose, more powerful friends that America has, but they know they do not have a more sure and steadfast friend than Australia,” Morrison said when he arrived last year for an official visit.

Poor Bruce Springsteen. Is he so out of touch with the facts and truth? His entire career he sold himself as this blue-collar rocker who was telling the story of the working man in America. Then, when America finally elects a president who puts the working-class first, Springsteen rejects him.

It seems like Bruce has a huge problem with himself and his Hollywood buddies, not with the man currently residing at 1600 Pennslyvania Avenue.
