It doesn't take much to ruffle the plumage of hate-spewing metro Detroit-born rap rocker Kid Rock these days. In fact, his list of personal offenders is growing, many of whom are women, many of whom he attacks with crudeness and condescension.
“Taylor Swift wants to be a Democrat because she wants to be in movies... period,” Kid tweeted, adding, “and it looks like she will suck the door knob off Hollyweird to get there. Oldest move in the book. Good luck girl.”
Kid's misogynistic commentary follows the recent release of the trailer for the film adaptation of the Broadway musical, Cats, starring Swift as Bombalurina and Vogue's in-depth profile on the “Bad Blood” singer, released yesterday. Swift had been widely criticized before the 2018 midterm elections for keeping her political affiliation under wraps. Last year, the 29-year-old took to her Instagram to endorse Tennessee Democrats while putting Republican incumbent Marsha Blackburn on blast for her anti-LGBTQ policies. It was later reported that Tay-Tay encouraged an estimated 65,000 people to register to vote within 24 hours of her IG endorsement.
Unlike Swift, Kid is no stranger to politics. Just last year Kid successfully dodged election violations for his fake political bid for U.S. Senate in 2017 because the Federal Election Commission deemed an investigation a waste of FEC resources. Last year also found Kid backing “pro-life” and “pro-Second Amendment” Michigan conservative John James for the same position he jokingly ran for.
Oh, he's also golfing pals with our racist president, Donald J. Trump.
