Democratic Senator Warns Party not to dismiss Kid Rock Senate bid as a joke
Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) issued a grave an urgent warning about the potential Senate run from pro-Trump musician Kid Rock, and that is to take the matter more seriously.
In a party that includes Al Franken and in the house Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters how could the Democrats dismiss Kid Rock?
“I know a lot of people are thinking: this is some sort of joke, right?”
According to the Boston Herald, her comments appeared in a fundraising email that was sent out to Democratic Party operatives and subscribers.

“Well maybe this is all a joke — but we all thought Donald Trump was joking when he rode down the escalator at Trump Tower and announced his campaign, too.”
In the Summer of 2015, the announcement that Donald Trump would be a serious contender for the office of the presidency was taken as a joke by many political pundits on the Left and the Right.
However, when Trump defeated more than a dozen challengers in the Republican primaries, some began to take notice and became more concerned.
Still, the Trump campaign did not appear to worry the Democrats. Clinton made relatively few campaign appearances, went over 180 days without giving a press interview, and seemed to be taking the entire campaign for granted.
Even her allies in the media assured her that she was on a pathway to victory with CNN and the New York Times giving her a 90% chance of victory as of the week preceding the election.
Very few Leftists even thought that the all-powerful Clinton Machine could be defeated, especially by a man with no political experience, which might explain why Democrats spent many months being unable to cope with the staggering defeat of Hillary Clinton.
Warren told the Democratic Party operatives to not fall into the same trap that they had fallen into during the 2016 election.
“…And sure, maybe this is just a marketing gimmick for a new album or tour — but we all thought Donald Trump was just promoting his reality TV show, too.”
Kid Rock is planning on running for a Senate seat in Michigan. He made his official announcement using Twitter, the same social media platform that Donald Trump took advantage of during his political campaign and beyond.
