Kid Rock on Trump: He’s ‘Doing a Great Job with His Policies’

Musician had kind words for the president — but some vulgar ones for Joy Behar of 'The View'

During a Friday appearance on “Fox & Friends,” rocker Kid Rock didn’t mince words.

When asked about the president’s job performance, Rock responded, “I think the president’s doing a great job with his policies. I wish, you know, I heard you earlier in a bumper asking people what was their biggest concern, and mine would be just, you know, the division in the country right now.”

“It’s so hard for people just to get past that we can disagree and still be cordial with one another,” he said.

The musician is an open conservative and even recently flirted with the idea of running for public office in his home state of Michigan.

Rock continued by talking about the growing division in America. “You know, and just talk about things without going for each other’s throats and protesting everything and — God forbid you say something a little bit wrong — you’re racist, homophobic, Islamophobic. This, that and the other. People need to calm down, get a little less politically correct. And I would say, you know, love everybody.”

He then added a strong insult of Behar by saying, “Except I’d say screw that Joy Behar b****. Everybody but that.”

The interview was on live TV, so “Fox & Friends” co-host Steve Doocy quickly apologized for the language and Rock himself jumped in and tried backpedaling.

“I mean lady. I mean lady,” the musician said.

“Maybe we’ll go on and I’ll hash it out with her and we’ll talk about it. But, aside from joking, which I was, is just go out and hash it out with people and have your thoughts and ideas but, be able to still go have a beer with somebody and just say, you know, hey, we all love this country.”

“And you know, let’s have different ideas, but try to move forward and be more together and realize at the end of the day, we’re all Americans.”

He concluded, “I did apologize for the language. Not the sentiment.”

Behar has caused quite a bit of controversy during her time on “The View.”

She’s had to apologize to the vice president for insulting his religion and she’s often the most left-leaning on the already extremely leftist show.

The “Fox & Friends” interview was meant to promote Rock’s new restaurant and bar in Nashville, Tennessee, called Kid Rock’s Big A** Honky Tonk Rock & Roll Steakhouse.

Other musicians who own restaurant-bars in Nashville include John Rich, Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley, Blake Shelton, and many others.
