Donald Trump Opens Kid Rock Concert With Video Message

Donald Trump Opens Kid Rock Concert With Video Message

Trump praised Rock's fans as 'hard-working, God-fearing, rock-and-roll patriots'

Kid Rock kicked off his latest gig with a video message from Donald Trump.

The 'All Summer Long' singer, a longtime supporter of the former POTUS, recently played for fans in Evansville, Indiana.

As he took to the stage, cheering fans were soon greeted with Trump's face on the concert's screen, met with applause from the audience.

In the video shared to TikTok by @tammyraber, Trump said: "Hello everyone, I love you all. I know you're all having a great time at the Kid Rock concert tonight.

"Quite frankly, he's amazing. All of you in attendance are true backbone of our country: hard-working, God-fearing, rock-and-roll patriots.

"Bob [his real name is Robert Ritchie] 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.

"Let's all continue to love one another, fight for our God-given freedoms, and most of all, let's make America rock again."

Trump also sported a red hat with the altered slogan at the end of the video. "Have a wonderful time tonight, god bless you, and god bless America," he said.

Rock then began singing 'We the People', a pro-Trump song which criticises President Joe Biden and Dr. Anthony Fauci.

The lyrics open: "We the people in all we do, reserve the right to scream 'f**k you'... wear your mask, take your pills, now a whole generation’s mentally ill."

It continues: "But COVID’s near, it’s coming to town, we gotta act quick, shut our borders down. Joe Biden does, the media embraces. Big Don does it and they call him racist."

Kid Rock.

Bar Trump's supporters, the video has been mostly mocked online. The Washington Post's Paul Waldman tweeted: "Nothing captures the rebellious spirit of rock 'n roll quite like a corrupt 75-year-old plutocrat with a fake tan talking about golf."

Another user wrote: "Imagine going to this concert. You drink a lot of really bad beer and Everclear. You see this on the jumbo screen. You assume you have just entered hell."

The musician earlier claimed Trump was 'proud' of him over the lyrics to 'We The People', and that there's loads of celebrities who support Trump - just not publicly.

He told Tucker Carlson: "I’m not going to talk out of school on these people, they obviously don’t want to be out in the open for whatever reasons they have, but yeah there’s a ton of ’em."
