Bruce Springsteen Predicts Re-election Win for Trump

In his recent interview with Esquire Magazine, rocker Bruce Springsteen had nothing good to say about President Trump.

[He] has no interest in uniting the country, really, and actually has an interest in doing the opposite and dividing us, which he does on an almost daily basis. So that’s simply a crime against humanity, as far as I’m concerned. It’s an awful, awful message to send out into the world if you’re in that job and in that position. It’s just an ugly, awful message. You are intentionally trying to disenfranchise a large portion of Americans. I mean, you are simply . . . that’s unforgivable. And then there’s just the rise of—whether it’s the alt-right or the folks who were marching in Charlottesville with their tiki torches and all of that coming to the fore again, you know? Which our president was more than happy to play into and to play to. So these are folks who are invested in denying the idea of a united America and an America for all. It’s a critical moment. This has come so far to the surface, and it’s so toxic. And it appears to have a grip . . . and to be so powerful . . . in a lot of people’s lives at the moment. It’s a scary moment for any conscientious American, I think.” (Esquire)

He later alludes to Trump being an "idiot," "damaged," and "dangerous."

But, despite all that about Trump's "ugly, awful message" and his division, he is still going to be president in 2020, Springsteen predicted in another interview. 

“I don’t see anyone out there at the moment...the man who can beat Trump, or the woman who can beat Trump,” Springsteen told The Sunday Times Magazine.

Other prominent liberals, like filmmaker Michael Moore and HBO host Bill Maher, who have spoken out about Trump have acknowledged that he will probably be a two-termer. Moore said Trump will pull it off because he's an "evil genius" who managed to "outsmart the smartest person to ever run for president," meaning Hillary Clinton. Maher has called Trump a "traitor," but is so afraid that 45 will win another term that he is even "hoping" for a recession.

Are they right? Well, Moore already correctly predicted Trump's 2016 win.
