Kid Rock hasn’t formally announced a run for the Senate yet but he’s talking like a candidate during some his live shows. At a concert in Grand Rapids this week, he got very political.
The Detroit Free Press reports:
Kid Rock rattles off political views in fiery ‘stump speech’ at Grand Rapids show
Kid Rock got political Wednesday night in a warm-up show ahead of his big Detroit concert run — as political as he’s ever gotten onstage.
But he still offered no definitive word about any U.S. Senate run.
Instead, playing for a high-energy capacity crowd at Van Andel Arena, the metro Detroit-born star worked up a theatrical, rhyming, profanity-filled stump speech of sorts, knocking everything from “deadbeat dads” to those who “take a knee” during the national anthem.
The speech, preceded by “Hail to the Chief” and delivered at a podium with a pair of flag-waving female dancers at his side, turned out to be prelude to a performance of his song “You’ve Never Met a Motherf—– Quite Like Me.”
The Grand Rapids crowd, many holding aloft smartphones to document the moment, cheered most of Rock’s big applause lines as he laid out his views: He applauded single moms but bemoaned those who “can’t even take care of themselves but keep having kid after … kid.” He blasted those who “call me a racist ‘cause I’m not (politically correct),” adding that they “think you have to remind me that black lives matter.” And he snarled: “Nazi f—— bigots and the KKK, screw all you ass—–, stay the f— away.”
It sure sounds like he’s planning to run. He’d probably do very well, too!
