Bruce Springsteen's Broadway show took a break from the script on Tuesday to denounce the Trump administration's "inhumane" immigration policy of separating children from parents who try to enter the country illegally.
The Boss said that "senior people in government" had blasphemed in suggesting they had a duty to separate families. Attorney General Jeff Sessions had used a bible quote to defend the policy.
Springsteen continued, telling the sold-out audience, "For 146 shows, I have played pretty much the same set every night. Tonight demands something different," and then began playing "The Ghost of Tom Joad."
Before awarding Springsteen the Tony award for "Springsteen on Broadway" last week, actor Robert De Niro launched into an expletive laden tirade against President Trump.
