After Donald Trump kind of ruined Election Night by winning the whole thing, political careers have been floated by everyone from Kanye West to The Rock. Kid Rock was even rumored to run for Senate, but just before we could assume Joe Rogan from Fear Factor would take over the Supreme Court, Kid put icy cold water on his political ambition.
The Hill reports Kid was on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show this morning, where he was asked about his possible bid…y’know, the one where he made T-shirts and even tweeted about the authenticity of his run? But Kid has changed his tune:
“Fuck no, I’m not running for Senate. Are you fucking kidding me? Who couldn’t figure that out? I’m releasing a new album. I’m going on tour, too. Are you fucking shitting me?”
A new Kid album instead? Ewwwww I would have rather seen him wrassle for a committee chairmanship with Dianne Feinstein.
Kid had reportedly pondered running against Senator Debbie Stabenow from his home state of Michigan. He hawked those shirts and criticized her (and other politicians) because people were tired of their horsey shit. Debbie’s campaign has kind of made bank fundraising with the threat of Republicans actually sending another one of their own to the gator barrel that is Washington. Debbie hasn’t said much since Kid never announced he was running.
Kid then took back his “Fuck no, I’m not running for Senate” by saying that he will run if they keep fucking with him and he’ll go over to DC to smack ’em all down.
“If they keep fucking with me in the papers and everything, I’m going to run. And I’m going to go to fucking DC, I’m going to beat the shit out of Debbie — whatever the fuck her name is — and then I’m going to go to D.C. and I’m going to smack the living shit out of all of them motherfuckers on the Hill.”
I’m sure the Secret Service totally isn’t booking it to Michigan right now to give him a talking to. Actually, considering how things go today, they’re probably too busy looking in their telescope making sure Kathy Griffin stays in Australia. Even though he is a fan and was part of the hillbilly trinity of Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent to visit Trump at the White House earlier this year, Kid still thinks Donny boy needs to lay off the tweets:
“I say dumb shit, but I’m like fucking in a band.”
Now that’s some smart bawitdaba reasoning!
