Former president Donald J Trump named Kid Rock as “one of the greatest entertainers” in a video that was played before the singer took the stage on his current headlining Bad Reputation Tour.
The video featuring the 45th president was played prior to Kid Rock singing his controversial rock-rap tune, “We The People.” A voice over the loudspeaker introduced Trump amid the cheers of the crowd in attendance.
“Ladies and gentlemen, we have a very special announcement from the 45th President of the United States of America,” the announcer 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,” Trump said. “All of you in attendance are the true backbone of our country. Hardworking, God-fearing, Rock N’ Roll patriots,” he continued.
“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,” Trump added. “Let’s all continue to love one another, fight for our God given freedoms and most of all, Let’s make America rock again!”
Former President Trump proceeded to don a red “Make America Rock Again” hat,” similar to the hats that have gained popularity during his two presidential campaigns that read, “Make America Great Again.”
“Have a wonderful time tonight, God bless you and God bless America,” he finished as Kid Rock exploded onto the stage singing “We The People.”
The screen behind Rock featured a variety of graphics/videos, including an American flag, photos of well-known news personalities such as MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and CNN’s Brian Stelter, expletives, and girls chanting ‘Let’s Go Brandon.’
Kid Rock released “We The People” back in January. The provocative tune takes aim at President Joe Biden, NIAID Dr. Anthony Fauci, Facebook, Twitter, and the mainstream media. The song also finds Kid Rock chanting “Let’s Go Brandon” repeatedly on the song’s chorus. The slogan is understood to be a less profane version of “F*ck Joe Biden.”
Kid Rock Is Currently In The Midst Of His Bad Reputation Tour & Is A Longtime Supporter Of The Former President
The “All Summer Long” singer is currently performing on his 24-date Bad Reputation tour, which kicked off on April 6 in Evansville, Indiana. The tour continues through September and features support from Foreigner, Grand Funk Railroad, Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening and Trey Lewis.
The controversial hitmaker is a long-time supporter of former President Trump. The singer appeared at a 2020 campaign rally in his hometown of Detroit to support Trump’s re-election bid. In addition, he appeared alongside the former president when he signed the Music Modernization Act into law in 2018.
Kid Rock has also golfed with the former president and gone hunting with his son, Donald Trump, Jr.
