Country Star John Rich Bets Journalist $10k That Trump Gets SCOTUS Win
Celebrity Apprentice winner John Rich bet a Rolling Stone writer $10,000 that Donald Trump will get a SCOTUS win and be re-elected.
Country singer John Rich is putting his money where his mouth is. The Celebrity Apprentice winner challenged music writer Adam Gold to a $10,000 bet over how the Supreme Court will rule in regards to the presidential election.
Gold and Rich had been sparring over the singer’s belief that the Supreme Court will out the election in the hands of the state legislatures or the House of Representatives.
John Rich is a Trump supporter who believes the President will be in the White House for four more years.
Rolling Stone Writer Calls Him ‘Nostradumbass’
Adam Gold, a Rolling Stone writer, taunted Rich, of Big & Rich fame, after the Supreme Court rejected a Trump ally’s case regarding election fraud in Pennsylvania.
Gold even got personal with Rich. The country star dismissed the journalist’s insult.
“Still feeling good about your SCOTUS prediction, Nostradumbass?,” Gold tweeted.

Despite that Supreme Court blow, Rich is still confident and he’s willing to put a bundle of money on it.
After all, the Supreme Court had just been given another case where Texas (and now multiple other states) have sued the four states with election fraud claims.
John Rich’s Trump Bet Will Benefit Folds Of Honor
The Big & Rich singer replied to Gold’s taunt by proposing a bet.
If Trump wins, Gold would have to donate $10k to Folds of Honor which provides scholarships to family members of deceased or disabled service members.
If Biden wins, Rich would donate $10k to the charity of Gold’s choice.
.@goldadam VERY confident! Let’s make our bet official. We both put 10k into an escrow account and if Biden is sworn in as POTUS, I lose my 10k, but you have to DONATE it to @FoldsOfHonor. If Trump wins, I’ll donate your 10k to a charity of your choice. Deal? #PutUpOrShutUp https://t.co/f9cTtsjdPO

That’s putting your money where your mouth is! No matter what, one charity is going to be a big winner as Gold agreed.
Deal. It’s on.
