The Boss began the latest episode of his radio show "From My Home to Yours" by explaining to his "fellow travelers" that he initially had a different program in mind. Bruce Springsteen then pointed out to the US' rising cases of Covid-19 and the Black Lives Matter raging across the country.

"But with 100,000-plus Americans dying over the last few months and the empty, shamed response from our leaders, I've been simply pissed off," Springsteen said. He added that those lives deserve better than just being "inconvenient statistics" for President Trump's attempts at re-election, calling it "a national disgrace."

Bruce Springsteen to President Trump: "Put on a f**king mask."

Continuing his lament and instead of celebrating summer, Bruce Springsteen invited his listeners to contemplate the current circumstances, such as the coronavirus pandemic, and "the cost that it has drawn from our nation. The Boss continued that the show would continue to calculate what was lost and send prayers to the deceased and their families.

Next in Springsteen's commentary was President Trump himself. He began: "I'm going to start out with sending one to the man sitting behind the Resolute Desk." Before The Boss put on his first track for the episode, he said, "With all respect, sir, show some consideration for your countrymen and your country. Put on a f**king mask."

The remark follows reports showing the President's activities where he does not wear face masks during his visits. Trump has been criticized for the act, including his media-covered visit to Honeywell's mask-making plant in Arizona last May. CNN reports that the President did wear a mask, but not in the presence of cameras.

Back at the Oval Office, President Trump explained that he had a mask for some time. "I had it on back -- backstage. But they said you didn't need it, so, I didn't need it. And by the way, if you noticed, nobody else had it on that was in the group."

His statement was corroborated by a spokesman for Honeywell, saying that they allowed the President, as with other dignitaries, not to wear a mask.

The Boss' "Reason To Believe"

Bruce Springsteen has recently revisited his archives, unearthing a live performance of "Reason to Believe" from his 2005 Stockholm performance.
