Uncancellable Kid Rock sat down with Tucker Carlson on Monday night to discuss cancel culture, Dr. Fauci, and Donald Trump.
Unremarkably, Fox News canceled several F-bombs during the interview as the Kid puffed away incessantly on a fat cigar and blew it all in Tucker’s face.
Of course Fauci, 81, has faced threats to his security and that of his family as nearly one million people in the U.S. alone have died of COVID-19.
The interview with Tucker was timed with the release of a new Kid Rock album, but seemed to highlight Kid Rock’s political views as much as his musical insights. Kid claims to be Republican on fiscal and military issues, but leans middle on social quagmires.
“I am no fan of abortion,” he said, “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.”
Kid also said he was excited to perform at President Obama’s inauguration even though he 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.”
And speaking of division, Kid told Tucker about the time he spent with TFG.
The first time was when Sarah Palin invited Kid and Ted Nugent to the White House because, as Palin said, “Jesus was booked.”
“I was there with [Trump] one day when he ended the caliphate,” said the Kid. According to Kid, “He wanted to put out a tweet … I don’t like to speak out of school. I hope I’m not. But … the tweet was, and I’m paraphrasing, but it’s like, you know, ‘If you ever joined the caliphate, you know, trying to do this, you’re going to be dead.’” Of course, Trump cleaned it up and tweeted out something equally absurd.
Kid also described a day when he and Trump looked at maps together — IKR??
‘Am I supposed to be in on this shit?’ Like I make dirty records sometimes. I do.
Trump asked Kid what he thought he should do about North Korea, but Kid admitted he didn’t think he was qualified to answer.
If there’s anyone who thinks they can stomach listening to more of the interview, here’s almost eight minutes of it. It may be eight minutes of your life you never get back. Just saying.
