Donald Trump Jr. calls Bruce Springsteen’s dropped charges ‘liberal privilege’

Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter Thursday to slam Bruce Springsteen over his dropped DUI charges, saying the singer’s left-leaning political views got him off the hook.

I’d say it’s #WhitePrivilege but we all know it’s really #LiberalPrivilege,” Trump Jr. tweeted.

Springsteen, who was arrested in New Jersey in November for driving under the influence, reckless driving and consuming alcohol in a closed area, is an ardent supporter of President Biden. 

The “Born in the U.S.A.” singer faced backlash after news of his arrest, including having his Jeep Super Bowl commercial pulled from YouTube.

Springsteen pleaded guilty to the charge of drinking in a closed area after reportedly telling the judge he had only consumed two shoots of tequila. His other two charges were dropped Wednesday, and he was fined $540.

Springsteen and former President Obama launched a podcast on Monday called “Renegades: Born in the U.S.A.”
