What could make Kid Rock’s already anti-Fauci, anti-Biden message even better? How about a message from former President Donald Trump? Sounds good to me!
Fortunately for all of us, that’s just what happened: Kid Rock kicked off his new tour with an awesome message from the former president, a president whose base shares quite a few members with Rock’s audience. In the message, which can be viewed here, Trump said:
“Hello everyone. I love you all. I know you’re having a great time at the Kid Rock concert tonight. Quite frankly, he’s amazing. All of you in attendance are the true backbone of our great country. Hardworking, God fearing, rock and roll patriots.
Bob is truly one of the greatest entertainers of our time. Not the best golfer by any means. His golf game could use a little work. But a great, great entertainer. And that’s why you’re there.”
Newsweek, reporting on the video message and the situation surrounding it, notes that:
Video of the concert in Evansville, Indiana, on Wednesday, that showed Trump greeting the audience at the concert has been viewed more than 500,000 times on TikTok by Saturday. Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, has been a longtime supporter of the former president.
Beyond that, Trump has good reason to associate himself with Kid Rock.
For one, Rock is one of Trump’s golfing buddies: the two were photographed playing together while Washington went crazy waiting for the release of the Mueller report, with rock posting the photo of the duo on his Instagram, a photo made all the funnier by the ridiculous American flag pants he was wearing.
Additionally, Rock has proven quite popular with the MAGA base, as was seen when Tucker Carlson interviewed him and Rock declared himself “uncancelable” because he doesn’t rely on woke corporations for his income.
All in all, it was a hilarious message, one that’ll both help Rock out and keep Trump in the minds of many Americans as expectations of him announcing a 2024 run mount.
