NBC will broadcast a concert tonight featuring Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi and Christina Aguilera in order to benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Well, that’s what they want you to believe. According to the folks at Fox And Friends the concert is actually being held to benefit the president.
Here’s the case laid out by Steve Doocy and Eric Bolling.
- The concert comes just a few days before the election. The reasoning here seems to be that Obama created a massive storm in order to win more votes. Why can’t hurricane victims wait a week in order to get help?
- Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi and Billy Joel are all Obama supporters. The reasoning here seems to be that a person who supports Obama is not allowed to care about people in need.
Why does Bruce Springsteen all of a sudden care about the Jersey Shore?
Is it because he grew up in Jersey? Because most of his songs are about the hard-working people who live in New Jersey? Is it because he said today that that “we’re a band that cannot be separated from the Jersey shore?”
Or is it because he’s an Obama supporter and he wants to make sure that the storm gets extra media attention?
Here’s the video of the discussion from Fox and Friends.
Do you think NBC’s Hurricane Sandy benefit concert is a political event?
