[See NewsBusters for more.] For the second time in two days, CBS This Morning managed to twist a light segment into something political. Co-host Gayle King interviewed Bruce Springsteen, but decided to goad the liberal singer into discussing 2020. After playing a recent clip of Donald Trump King, King pressed, “So he's going back to 2016. This is now 2019. Are you surprised that he's trash talking you after all this time?” The journalist prompted, “I mean, a lot of people are very concerned about the direction of the country.”  Springsteen replied, “It's just frightening. We're living in a frightening time. The stewardship of the nation has been thrown away to somebody who doesn't have a clue as to what that means.”
