Rocker Kid Rock apologizes for 2017 Senate run publicity stunt. He says it was initially “fun and games” until people started taking it seriously. One of the people who wasn’t dismissing it as a joke was Pocahontas herself Senator Elizabeth Warren possible 2020 front-runner to get demolished by President Trump.
Warren said at the time. “I know a lot of people are thinking: this is some sort of joke, right?” “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.”
Kid Rock whose real name is Robert Richie said in his apology. ”
“You know, I was hearing from the White House weekly,” he said. “There were governors and senators that endorsed me. There were people who wrote me letters from all over … So to those people, I apologize.”
He also said: “I hope you’ll accept that apology, and I hope you’ll also trust me when I say I’m 100% here to endorse and do everything I can to make sure John James gets into the U.S. Senate.”
Kid Rock apologizes he said “he didn’t factor in letting down his supporters.”
Donald Trump has been very successful thus far in his presidency. But let’s be clear he is more than a reality TV star. He has been very successful for many years as a real estate tycoon. He also has followed politics and been a part of the political process throughout his lifetime having fought bureaucracy in New York City and throughout the world. So he was an outsider but not as much of an outsider as Kid Rock. He made a wise choice.
