Kid Rock is set to headline President Donald J. Trump's Monday rally in Harrison Charter Township, Michigan, alongside Donald Trump Jr. and his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle. The campaign event is slated to begin at 7:00 pm Monday, with doors opening an hour before, according to the event description posted to the president’s campaign website. Kid Rock has been a fan of Trump for years. Last year, the 'All Summer Long' hitmaker went golfing with the president at the Trump International Golf Club following the completion of the Russia collusion investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller.

“Another great day on the links!” Kid Rock tweeted after the golf outing. “Thank you to POTUS for having me and to EVERYONE at Trump International for being so wonderful. What a great man, so down to earth and so fun to be with!! KEEP AMERICA GREAT!!”



 

The 'Cowboy' hitmaker appeared to hint at a potential Senate run in Michigan in 2017. At the time, the rocker blasted corporate media for “once again” being “wrong” about his potential candidacy. “I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real…” Kid Rock wrote in a 2017 tweet, sharing a link to what appeared to be a campaign website, kidrockforsenate.com. “The answer is an absolute YES,” he added. Trump also thanked McDonald's "for letting his favorite artist perform" at his rally.



 

 



 

But the coming together of the POTUS and the Detroit rocker was not taken too kindly on social media, where several users mocked the headlining act. "Kid Rock joining Donald Trump is like E.coli joining diarrhea," Author John Pavlovitz tweeted. "Having a rally in Michigan is dangerous. People could be exposed to Kid Rock's music and then spread it to others," Writer Nick Pappas added. "Chuck Woolery, Travis Tritt, James Woods, Scott Baio, Kid Rock, and Ted Nugent. How could Trump possibly lose with the support of THIS brain trust?" one user quipped.



 

 



 



 

"Here we mark the anonymous lives of those brave souls who masklessly braved a global pandemic to see Scott Baio introduce Kid Rock at an airport hangar rally in Reno, NV," wrote TV producer Michael Schur, who goes by the moniker Ken Tremendous on Twitter, alongside a tweet by the president. "Apparently, Kid Rock will "headline" a trump rally in MI. 1) When you look like Dr. Phil's grandfather, you really should drop the name "Kid"; and 2) The sound he makes is no more "rock" than shoving a spoon in a garbage disposal," anti-Trump author Howard Altman tweeted as he chimed in.



 

 



 

That said, Kid Rock has made headlines throughout Trump's presidency. He was there at the White House when the POTUS signed into law a groundbreaking music regulation bill -- the Orrin G. Hatch-Bob Goodlatte Music Modernization Act. The 'American Bad Ass' hitmaker has been a longtime supporter of the president and has consistently attacked the social justice left. “F**k ANYONE who takes a knee or sits during our national anthem!” he said of NFL anthem protesters in September 2017.
