Music superstar Kid Rock is still seriously considering running for U.S. Senate as a Republican representing his home state of Michigan, and he is already fending off attacks by members of the media who are trying to damage him politically before the campaign heats up for the 2018 elections.
Rock recently took to his Facebook page to hit back at one liberal reporter who told an outright “fake news” story about the singer. Wrote the singer, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, “Just saw this latest fake news piece…
The idiot that posted it is such a bad reporter that he/she did not even check to see if this was my Twitter (which it is NOT!).”
He continued, “Of course the press will report on everything else I have said here except this fake news. Unreal. (and these are the types of stories that can not be taken back in this day and age because they go viral so quickly and the damage is done before the corrections can be made.)”
Rock started off his lengthy post by saying, “People! Pay NO attention to the garbage the extreme left is trying to create! (and by the way, fuck the extreme left and the extreme right!) They are trying to use the old confederate flag BS, etc. to stir the pot, when we all know none of this would be going on if I were not thinking of running for office. Pretty funny how scared I have them all and their only agenda is to try and label people / me racist who do not agree or cower to them!! No one had a word to say when we sold out the 6 shows at LCA back in January!”
He added, “My track record in Detroit and Michigan speaks for itself, and I would dare anyone talking trash to put theirs up against mine. I am also a homeowner and taxpayer in the city of Detroit, so suck on that too!
I am the bona fide KING OF DETROIT LOVE and it makes me smile down deep that you haters know that! Your jealousy is merely a reflection of disgust for your own failures and lack of positive ideas for our city.” Are you glad Kid Rock is speaking out against liberal smears?
