President Trump angered fans of music icons Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Bruce Springsteen (AKA The Boss) on Thursday after he threw shade at them during a campaign rally in Minneapolis.


Bragging about the size of his 2016 campaign rallies to the crowd gathered at the Target Center in downtown Minneapolis, Trump attempted to belittle Hillary Clinton, a constant focus of his wrath since the election, by dragging the high-profile musical acts that performed at her campaign events.

Trump told the cheering crowd:

"I didn't need Beyoncé and Jay-Z. And I didn't need little Bruce Springsteen and all of these people."

Little Bruce Springsteen?

Check out his Greatest Hits, available here, to see how big The Boss is.

Seriously.

Trump then went on to claim that the musicians would "come in because she couldn't get a crowd."

He added:

"[Springsteen] would do about two songs and leave. What happens is they leave and then everyone leaves with them, and she's still speaking in front of the same lousy crowd. Craziest thing I've ever seen!"

Trump then proceeded to throw Jay-Z under the bus while complaining about being criticized for using bad language, saying:

"The other day I used the word 'hell'–I got hell–they said 'he used terrible language!' I used the word 'hell', it was so bad. But you gotta hear Jay-Z, the words he was using. He was using the f-word all over the place, and then the next day they said I used bad language. The word 'hell' is a terrible word. These people are sick."

But "hell" isn't the only bad word Trump has been chastised for using recently. He used an all-caps "BULLS–T" in a tweet slamming Democrats for "wasting everyone's time" by pursuing impeachment, which is arguably a much worse word than "hell."

Needless to say, people were upset by Trump's dig at the musicians.

Even presidential hopeful Cory Booker got in on the action.

Trump might be in for a world of hurt.

Being in the service industry is an incredibly difficult career. It is not for the lazy or faint of heart. In fact it has been scientifically proven that it takes an emotional toll on the soul, the body and most especially the mind.
