Earlier this year, supporters of Donald Trump were ecstatic when proud conservative Kid Rock announced plans to run for Senate in his home state of Michigan. That’s why it came as devastating news this week when Kid Rock backtracked on these plans.
Fox News reported that during an interview with Howard Stern on Tuesday, Kid Rock announced that he will not be running for Senate.
“F–k no, I’m not running for Senate,” Kid Rock told Stern. “Who couldn’t figure that out?”
The rocker went on to say that considering the Senate run was “the worst advice I ever gave myself.”
“But it’s been the most creative thing I’ve ever done,” he said. “And I’ve gotten to see everyone’s true colors.”
Rumors of Kid Rock’s senatorial run began last July, when he announced a new initiative to create a “non-profit organization for the promotion of voter registration,” while he continues to explore the idea of challenging incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich, in 2018. He has become a controversial figure in the eyes of politically correct liberals because of his embrace of the Confederate flag, an expletive-laced criticism of NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and unabashed support for President Donald Trump.
“Pay NO attention to the garbage the extreme left is trying to create! (and by the way, f–k the extreme left and the extreme right!)…they are trying to use the old confederate flag BS, etc. to stir the pot,” Kid Rock wrote in a lengthy Facebook post last month.
“Pretty funny how scared I have them all and their only agenda is to try and label people / me racist who do not agree or cower to them,” he continued. “My track record in Detroit and Michigan speaks for itself, and I would dare anyone talking trash to put theirs up against mine. I am also a homeowner and taxpayer in the city of Detroit, so suck on that too!”
He’s also been a vocal critic of the NFL players who have been kneeling during the national anthem.
“To be clear – F–k ANYONE who takes a knee or sits during our national anthem! Pretty sure if Russell Wilson or Tom Brady were doing it they would have no problem finding a job playing for any team they wanted in the NFL! So cut the bulls**t,” Kid Rock said.
