Elizabeth Warren Scared Of Kid Rock Senate Run
"This is some sort of joke, right?”
Senator Elizabeth is taking Kid Rock's proposal to "rock the senate" seriously and she's warning her fellow Dems to do the same. In an email last Friday, the Senator exclaimed that Kid Rock's senate run must not be taken for a joke.
“I know a lot of people are thinking: this is some sort of joke, right?” she wrote in a fundraising email with the subject line, “Senator Kid Rock (R-MI),” according to the Boston Herald.
“Well, maybe this is all a joke — but we all thought Donald Trump was joking when he rode down the escalator at Trump Tower and announced his campaign, too," she continued.
“And sure, maybe this is just a marketing gimmick for a new album or tour — but we all thought Donald Trump was just promoting his reality show, too,” she added.
Earlier in the week, Kid Rock, whose birth name is James Robert Richie, flirted with a Michigan Senate runwhen he posted a link to a new campaign website, kidrockforsenate.com, on his Twitter account Wednesday.
In a follow-up post, Kid Rock said this was “not a hoax” and took a shot at his potential challenger Democratic incumbent Michigan Sen. Debbie Stabenow.
Stabenow responded on her personal Twitter account Wednesday.
“I know we both share a love of music. I concede he’s better at playing guitar and I’ll keep doing what I do best: fighting for Michigan,” she wrote.
Rock shot back on Facebook.
“Senator Stabenow and I do share a love of music, although probably not the same kind. I concede she is better at playing politics than I am so I’ll keep doing what I do best, which is being a voice for tax paying, hardworking AMERICANS and letting politicians like her know that We the People are sick and tired of their bullsh*t!” he wrote.
he many slogans that Kid Rock's site has floated included fun rock puns like "I'll Rock the Party," "You Never Met a Politician Quite Like Me," "Born Free," "Party to the People," "In Rock We Trust," and "Pimp of the Nation."
"Rock has become famous for his unapologetically patriotic performances. He's also unapologetically Republican," reports DW. "He performed at the Republican National Conventions in both 2016 and 2012. Though he initially backed Ben Carson during the 2016 Republican primaries, he wholeheartedly endorsed Trump when he took command of the race."
Celebrities going into politics have been the trend since Ronald Reagan showed it can lead you to the Presidency, which became solidified under President Trump, and will be sent into overdrive with Senator Kid Rock, which is a step in the right direction if you ask me, considering the clownship of Al Franken.
Though Kid Rock had no policy prescriptions on his site, his stances on social issues, including abortion, are not as kosher. From LifeNews:
In 2014, LifeNews reported on Kid Rock’s surprise visit to a man with Down syndrome on his 30th Birthday. He showered the man with gifts, including tickets to his next concert. And according to 99.5 WYCD, the “Devil Without A Cause” artist also brought a hat, a photograph and a custom guitar as gifts.
Kid Rock’s generosity and kindness was “liked” on YouTube by over a million people and was a refreshing reminder of how society should treat people with disabilities. However, unfortunately, in an interview with The Guardian Kid Rock opened up about his reluctant support for legal abortion.
“I am definitely a Republican on fiscal issues and the military, but I lean to the middle on social issues. I am no fan of abortion, but it’s not up to a man to tell a woman what to do. Kid Rock continued, “I played Barack Obama’s inauguration even though I didn’t vote for him. I didn’t agree with his policies, but there was an exciting sense of change in the air. That promise hasn’t been fulfilled – the country is more divided than ever.”
As President Trump has shown, however, being a private citizen and a politician are two separate things, and if Kid Rock does seriously want to become Senator, he may have a change of heart on the issue as he meets with members of the GOP who sway pro-life and realizes their support will be instrumental.
We can hope.
