Kid Rock just made the BIG announcement that he will be running for Senate in 2018.
This announcement has been met with much praise from Trump supporters and Democrats are shaking in their boots.
But liberal rag, The New Yorker, is demonizing Kid Rock’s run for Senate, saying it’s “a terrifying new normal.”
“Kid Rock has self-styled as a patriotic iconoclast, a rebel cowboy on a rampage against anything effete, elite, or soft. He is particularly enraged by rules or customs that might be construed as infringements on personal freedom,” wrote Amanda Petrusich in The New Yorker magazine.
The article goes on to say that Kid Rock – real name Robert James Ritchie – represents a dangerous trend against the political establishment because he is “a strident supporter of Donald Trump,” and that “it’s almost too easy” to compare the two of them because they’re both celebrities and political outsiders.
Ritchie, a Michigan native, announced his candidacy for the U.S. Senate earlier this week, tweeting out a yard sign that reads “Kid Rock for U.S. Senate.”
“I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this…is real. The answer is an absolute YES,” he tweeted.
Though Petrusich insists Ritchie’s announcement is probably just “an elaborate album roll-out stunt,” she says even the notion that a “belligerent, proudly debauched rock star” could possibly run for office is a “terrifying new normal.”
