Kid Rock and former President Trump have been close because the former first visited the latter inside the White residence in 2017, leading to a viral photo of kid Rock, Ted Nugent, and Sarah Palin flanking a grinning Trump behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval workplace. Kid Rock and Trump have become so near, the rocker advised Tucker Carlson in an interview that aired Monday night time on Fox information, that Trump sought his recommendation on an as an alternative sensitive geopolitical policy difficulty.
“We’re searching at maps and shit, and that I’m like, ‘Am I presupposed to be in in this shit?’ Kid Rock said. “I make dirty statistics occasionally. ‘What do you observe we ought to do about North Korea?’ I’m like, ‘What? I don’t think I’m certified to reply this.’”
Kid Rock also said Trump requested his opinion on a tweet about ISIS. “I was there at some point whilst he ended the caliphate,” Kid Rock said. “He desired to position out a tweet. The tweet changed into, and I’m paraphrasing, it was like in case you ever be a part of the caliphate and you try and try this, you’re going to be useless. He is going, ‘What do you believe you studied of this?’ i used to be like, ‘high-quality. Tweet that out. I’m able to upload anything better than that.’ Then it comes out and it’s reworded and more politically correct.”
Kid Rock didn’t say a whole lot else at some stage in the interview, outdoor of re-hashed, milquetoast statements approximately how he hates Anthony Fauci (“Fuck Fauci”) and may be canceled, as well as different speakme points from his proper-wing lifestyle warrior generation. “I’m uncancelable … You can’t cancel me. I really like it whilst they try,” he stated. “To you critics, haters, and trolls — pass fuck your self,” he added. This last barnburner of a statement certainly seemed to titillate Carlson, who set free with a grin as wide as his V-neck sweater.
The feedback about Trump had been eyebrow-elevating, however now not unexpected.

It looks like Kid Rock has a place near the front of the previous president’s Rolodex, as nicely. “It’s actually weird to get telephone calls from him and stuff,” he informed Carlson. “It’s a form of mind-blowing.”
