Should Tea Party Endorse Kid Rock If He Runs For Senate?

Just call him Senator “American Badass.”

Musician Kid Rock confirmed on Twitter that he plans to run for a U.S. Senate seat from Michigan in 2018.

Rock, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, dropped the bombshell Wednesday afternoon when he announced: “I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real … The answer is an absolute YES.”

Rock linked to the website “KidRockForSenate.com” and told fans to stay tuned for “a major announcement in the near future.”

In 2012, Rock stumped for Mitt Romney for president (we’ll forgive him for that). In 2015, the “American Badass” rocker revealed he’s a fiscal Republican, but a social libertarian.

“I am definitely a Republican on fiscal issues and the military, but I lean to the middle on social issues,” he told the Guardian. “I am no fan of abortion, but it’s not up to a man to tell a woman what to do. As an ordained minister, I don’t look forward to marrying gay people, but I’m not opposed to it.”

There have been rumors for months that Republicans in Michigan had been courting Kid Rock to run against Democratic incumbent Debbie Stabenow. Rock’s Twitter announcement set off a flurry of skepticism among liberals, who said all this is a PR stunt.

That seems unlikely, since PR stunts are not exactly Rock’s style. He’s not Kim Kardashian or some C-list liberal celebrity who’s virtue-signaling for brownie points in Hollywood.

Some noted that Rock has not filed any paperwork with the Federal Election Commission, so technically, none of this is official yet. But given Kid Rock’s longtime interest in politics, a senate run would not be surprising.

Time will tell whether the news is real, but many Kid Rock supporters already loved the idea:

Hell Yaa. Rock On! 

"Not opposed to "gay" (homosexual) marriage??

Sounds like a Christian In Name Only (CINO), in other words, someone who makes up his own right and wrong. Better than an anarchist commie, but only by one degree.

"As an ordained Minister I don't look forward to marrying gay people, but I am not opposed to it."

Nuff for me.

By the way, who ordained him?

And then, this.  " I am no fan of abortion, but it's not up to a man to tell a woman what to do."

Once again, who ordained this guy?   Demons? Or is he just an idiot.

If the latter is the case then he would fit right in as a U.S. Senator.

LIGHTER SIDE

Donald Trump Fuels Viral ‘Loser CNN’ Meme

ALERT ALERT

Congressman Calls Trump ‘Psychopath’
For Saying Out Loud What Rational-Minded Americans
Are Thinking About FBI

Democrats have become so unhinged over their hatred for President Donald Trump that they think nothing of calling the commander in chief a “psychopath.”

Case in point, U.S. Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., who took great exception to Trump saying out loud what most rational minded Americans are already thinking when it comes to the FBI.

The president took to Twitter on Saturday to state the obvious, that it’s unacceptable that the FBI failed to follow up on a credible tip about the Parkland, Fla., high school gunman who killed 17 people, and that the bureau has been too distracted in “trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.”

“Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign – there is no collusion. Get back to the basics and make us all proud!,” Trump tweeted.

 The FBI released a statement acknowledging that protocols were not followed when the tip that may have saved 17 lives was recieved.

“On January 5, 2018, a person close to Nikolas Cruz contacted the FBI’s Public Access Line (PAL) tipline to report concerns about him,” the bureau said in a statement. “The caller provided information about Cruz’s gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting.”

As for the “signals” the president referenced, the killer could not have screamed his intentions any louder than he did in the weeks leading up to last week’s shooting.

But this proved to be inconsequential to Congressman Gallego, an Iraq War veteran who responded to the president’s post by declaring “America will regret the day you were ever born.”

“You are such a psychopath that you have to make even the death of 17 children about you. America will regret the day you were ever born,” he tweeted. 

You are such a psychopath that you have to make even the death of 17 children about you. America will regret the day you were ever born.

Gallego, who announced in 2016 he was divorcing his wife while she was pregnant with their first child, criticized Trump is a second tweet for commenting on a news conference held by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who said that no Americans had knowledge of the efforts of 13 Russian nationals indicted last week for allegedly meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

The lawmaker noted that “children are being buried today.”

Of course, that didn’t stop the hypocrite from tweeting his support for pro-abortion Democratic women running for office on the same day “children are being buried.”
