On Monday, the “American Bad Ass” himself, Kid Rock, took the stage with Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle to perform at a Michigan campaign rally for President Donald Trump.
Don Jr. took to Twitter to promote the American rocker’s performance in advance of Monday’s Make America Great Again event at a boat club in Macomb County.

Kid Rock: America Is “The Greatest Country In The World”
The artist performed a number of his hits from a barge to get the crowd’s energy up after speeches by both Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle.
During the rally, Kid Rock also passionately defended the president in his role as rally hype man.
“If you believe in the leadership of Donald Trump, if you believe in more leadership of Donald Trump, that you will live and always live and support and stand for the greatest country in the world,” he said. “Make some d*** noise!”
The rock star took the stage to perform after Trump Jr. addressed the crowd at Bumpers Landing Boat Club in Harrison Township.
While the crowd loved hearing from Trump Jr., the party really got started when Kid Rock appeared to play some of his greatest hits, like “Born Free” and “All Summer Long.”

Kid Rock Pumps Up The Trump Rally Crowd
“You should probably hit record on your phone right now, because goddamn fake media will say it didn’t happen,” Kid Rock yelled, referring to the media’s frequent claims that few people support Trump.
“I’m not going to get too political, but god**** I kinda want to,” he later added “I want to see everybody do well in the country, everybody, but I don’t believe you make the poor rich by making the rich poor.”
“F*** that,” he continued. “I guess I’ll stick to my day job.”

Kid Rock Gets Steroid Shots To Perform
Earlier in the day, Kid Rock posted a photo to Facebook of himself getting steroid shots so that he could perform at the Trump rally.
He wrote in the caption of the image, “In case anyone is not clear on how much I support our President…”
“I have been dealing with neck issues for years (from performing like I do for the past 30 years) and spent the morning at the Dr’s office getting 2 Steroid shots, one in my ass and the other in my neck, etc, etc.,” he explained.
Kid Rock went on to say that while it would “make sense” to cancel his appearance, his love for Trump made it impossible for him to do that.
“That is how important getting POTUS re-elected is too me and I could care less about the continuous attacks from the left wing media, etc, that have been going on for over 4 years now,” the singer explained. “It’s the reason I have turned down countless interviews and TV appearances as I refuse to be their click bait.”
Kid Rock concluded his post by taking what appears to have been a swipe at liberals, saying, “I said years ago that TIME OUTS AND LAST PLACE TROPHIES would come back to haunt us!”
It Takes Guts To Be Famous And Support Trump
Regardless of how you feel about Trump, it’s hard not to respect an entertainer who is willing to risk his career to support him.
Unsurprisingly, not everyone supported the artist’s choice to perform at the Michigan rally.

The entertainment industry is so radically liberal that Kid Rock really is taking a big risk to perform at a rally supporting President Trump’s re-election.
One thing is for sure: Kid Rock has a mind of his own, and nobody is going to tell him how to think or what candidate to support!
