Best Reactions To Kid Rock Hinting That He Make A Run For U.S. Senate In 2018
To his credit, Donald Trump personified and demonstrated the old adage that anyone can become President of the United States. Now Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kanye West are considering a presidential run and Kid Rock hinted that he may make a run for U.S. Senate in 2018. Yes, that Kid Rock. Who in their right mind wouldn’t vote for Kid Rock if he promised to open up a Keystone Light Pipeline?
Robert Ritchie, better known as Kid Rock, teased that he may throw his hat into the ring for political office. He went so far as to set up the website kidrockforsenate.com with catchy slogans such as “WELCOME TO THE PARTY,” “IN ROCK WE TRUST,” “YOU NEVER MET A POLITICIAN QUITE LIKE ME,” “PIMP OF THE NATION.” The site even sells “Kid Rock for US Senate” T-shirts, trucker hats, and bumper stickers.
“I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real…” Ritchie tweeted. “The answer is an absolute YES.”
The “American Badass” does comment on political topics from time to time and was a guest of President Trump’s at the White House where he visited the Oval Office with Ted Nugent and former governor of Alaska Sarah Palin. Ritchie even went on the campaign trail for Mitt Romney in 2012 and endorsed Trump in 2016.
Is this a publicity stunt for the Detroit city cowboy’s new album or for him to sell more American Badass Grills? Or is he really running for Senate where he could appoint Ted Nugent as Chief of Staff? Entertainers becoming politicians has been done before, besides President Donald Trump, there was Ronald Reagan, Sonny Bono, Jesse Ventura, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Al Franken.
However, Ritchie is not registered on the Federal Election Commission website. Plus, the Michigan Republican Party said they have no knowledge of a Kid Rock campaign against Democratic incumbent Senator Debbie Stabenow in the 2018 midterm elections. Another sign this is all a hoax is that “Bawitdaba” singer’s new website is connected to Warner Bros. Records, which is Kid Rock’s record label.
The internet was bewildered, amazed, and confused by Kid Rock’s announcement. Here are some of the best reactions on Twitter.
At this point, Kid Rock needs to take his own advice and holler or shut up.
