In a pre-taped segment, the band performed its brand new song, “ Get Out Of Your own personal Way, ” in which frontman Bono sings:
Don’ t take it lyin’ lower, you got to bite back
The face of Liberty’ s starting to crack
She had a plan up to she got smacked in the mouth area
And it every went south
At the end of the song, Bono pulled out a bullhorn and stated, “ Blessed are the shithole nations, for they gave us the United states dream. ” Trump reportedly used that term to describe Haiti and some African countries while meeting with congress to discuss immigration.
Before the portion, U2 was introduced by Cuban-born singer Camila Cabello , who shared her family’ h immigration story plus called for viewers to support young unrecorded immigrants, also known as Dreamers.
