Breaking: Kid Rock to headline Trump rally in Michigan with Don Jr.


Not all celebrities have their heads up their you-know-whats!

Kid Rock, a famous supporter of President Trump, will be headlining a Trump rally in Michigan with Don Jr.

Here’s the news on his appearance from the New York Post:

Kid Rock will headline a campaign rally for President Trump Monday night in his home state of Michigan, the campaign has announced.

The musician, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, will appear alongside the commander-in-chief’s son Donald Trump Jr. and his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle, who is also a Trump campaign senior adviser, in Harrison Charter Township, Mich., for the “Make America Great Again” event.

Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the festivities are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.

News of the event comes as the Trump campaign has begun ratcheting up public events, which were paused for nearly six months as the coronavirus pandemic turned the election into a digital operation.

Last week, the president held a rally in Freeland, Mich., attended by thousands of people.

Should be a pretty fun rally to attend!

Kid Rock’s also been known to hangout with Trump.

Just last year, him and the President went golfing together:

Here's the latest on the upcoming rally:

Kid Rock isn't the only famous musician to support the President.

Rolling Stone compiled a list of musicians that have vocally supported the President:

Ace Frehley has never been very open about his political leanings, but that changed in a recent interview with the Cassius Morris Show (via Blabbermouth) when his cover of the Cream song “Politician” from his new LP Origins, Vol. 2 came up.

“I don’t think politics and rock & roll mix — in my opinion,” said the former Kiss guitarist. “And I try to stay away from that as much as I can. I mean, once in a while, I’ll make a crack. I will say I’m a Trump supporter. All the politicians have had skeletons in the closet. But I think Trump is the strongest leader that we’ve got on the table.”

He joins a small number of musical figures to voice their support for Trump, including Ted Nugent, Kid Rock, Pat Boone, Richie Furay, Aaron Lewis and Kanye West.

Frehley’s former Kiss bandmate Paul Stanley has a very different take and has been extremely critical of Trump over the past few years. Last month, he reacted to the president’s assertion that the 2020 election would likely be rigged in the event that he loses. “Regardless of who you support, it is incendiary and abhorrent for any candidate to say ‘If I lose, the election is rigged,'” Stanley wrote. “It’s an insult to those who have fought for the free, safe elections we have and dangerously implies that citizens who don’t share your views are the enemy.”

Gene Simmons, meanwhile, has taken a more neutral stance on Trump. “Whether somebody likes it or not, he’s the duly-elected president and I think you have to respect the presidency,” he told Rolling Stone in 2017. “The only thing I can say is that, next election cycle, if people like him he’ll be voted back in, and if people don’t want him, he’s not going to be voted back in. It’s so simple. Unless he breaks the law and gets impeached, this is what it is.”
