What Fresh Hell Is This?

The Boss, In Adelaide Australia

Bruce Springsteen tweeted this:
It's from a concert in Australia.  Here's what he said:
Tonight we want to add our voices to the thousands of Americans who are protesting in airports around our country. The Muslim ban, the detention of foreign nationals and refugees — America is a nation of immigrants and we find this antidemocratic and fundamentally un-American.
He then played this song, originally written during the Seeger Sessions, though released a few years later in 2012:

I hope I'm not overstepping by bounds here but I'd add that "antidemocratic and fundamentally un-American" is a good description of Donald Trump, his presidency and all the enablers in the GOP who once denounced him but are now on board with his racism, bigotry and sexism.
