Few conservative entertainers will voice their views in public. Making a living in an uber-liberal environment like the entertainment industry, and declaring support for Republicans or even more shocking, Donald Trump, is rare in the extreme.
Then there’s musician Kid Rock. He’s unabashedly conservative, a staunch Trump supporter, and he doesn’t care who knows it. His millions of fans know his views, and they are ok with it too.
On Monday night, Kid Rock sat down with Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson to talk about chatting with Trump about foreign policy, golf, and other topics facing the nation.
I never realized I was such a Kid Rock fan until I watched him tonight on Tucker Carlson. Gotta love a real man who speaks his mind and isn’t afraid of being canceled. In fact, he says he’s “uncancelable”and loves it when they try. A true patriot. #KidRock #TuckerCarlson

The interview ranged a whole host of topics with the affable Kid Rock.
Tucker Carson asked Rock about his relationship with the former president, “You are still playing golf with them down in Florida?” He also asked how Trump was doing, “How’s he seemed?”
“He seems great! He seems great. You know, after the election it was, you know a little different there, but he’s still the same guy. He sits down and just cuts it up. You start cutting it up, how sharp he is, it’s incredible.”

The contrast between Trump and Biden is stark, Kid Rock says.
“See now, if you watch a Joe Biden interview, and you watch a Trump interview, there’s no comparison. And Trump speaks off the cuff.
“I understand what it’s like, sometimes you get it wrong. But I would way rather hear somebody come from here [the heart] and get it wrong once in a while.”
Perhaps one of the most memorable moments in the interview with Tucker Carlson has Kid Rock telling of how he helped – or didn’t – Trump with messaging on the terrorist group ISIS.
“I was there with him one day at the end of the caliphate. He wanted to put out a tweet, and it was like … I don’t like to speak out of school and I hope I’m not, but it was something like, he was like, the tweet was and I’m paraphrasing, ‘If you ever joined a caliphate and tried to do this, you’re gonna be dead.”
When Trump asked his opinion of the tweet, Rock gave him a thumbs up sign and said, “Awesome! Tweet that out! I can’t add anything better than that!” He did say that Trump did clean it up a bit, making it more “politically correct” before posting it.
Kid Rock told Tucker that he and Trump were looking at maps, with Kid Rock wonder if that’s something he should be doing, when Trump ask him, “‘What do you think we should do about North Korea?’ I’m like ‘What? I don’t think I’m qualified to answer this!’”

Trump Supporter From The Beginning
Kid Rock was a Trump supporter from the beginning of the 2016 campaign. In an interview with Rolling Stone that year, when asked what he thought about the field of candidates, Kid Rock may have been ahead of his time, and described what many are feeling now about elected officials.
“I’m digging Trump. I feel like a lot of people, whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican, feel like if you get Hillary or Bernie, or you get Rubio or Cruz or whoever, there’s going to be the same sh*t.”
He added, “My feeling: let the m***erf**king business guy run it (the country) like a f**king business.”
“We’re looking at maps and sh*t, and I’m like, ‘Am I supposed to be in on this shit?’ the rocker told Tucker Carlson. https://t.co/DFnhNonaGx

Tucker Carlson also asked about Kid Rock’s latest album “Bad Reputation.” Carlson asked, “So if there was a message behind the album, what would it be?” Without hesitation, Rock answered, “To my fans, I love you dearly. To [the] critics, haters and trolls – go f— yourself.”
“I love the trolls and the haters and the critics who’ve been trying to, you know, knock me down for 20, 30 years. And I just, I’m still standing, [and] still operate at the highest levels.”
Carlson asked, “So why haven’t you been canceled?” Kid Rock gave the answer more artists should be giving:
“I’m uncancelable, because I don’t give a f—. I’m not in bed with any big corporate things. At the end of the day, there’s nobody I’m beholden to. No record companies, no corporate interests, no nothing. And you can’t cancel me. I love it when they try.”
