Kid Rock can’t decide if he’s running for U.S. Senate or president. But he’s most certainly having fun promoting the notion.

In Grand Rapids this week, the Michigan-born rocker “worked up a theatrical, rhyming, profanity-filled stump speech of sorts, knocking everything from ‘deadbeat dads’ to those who ‘take a knee’ during the national anthem,” said the Detroit Free Press.

(Hint: Rock’s a Republican.)

The crowd cheered most of the 46-year-old’s big applause lines as he laid out his views, the “Freep” said.

“He applauded single moms but bemoaned those who ‘can’t even take care of themselves but keep having kid after … kid.’ He blasted those who ‘call me a racist ‘cause I’m not (politically correct),’ adding that they ‘think you have to remind me that black lives matter.’ And he snarled: ‘Nazi f—— bigots and the KKK, screw all you ass—–, stay the f— away.’”

Near the end of his speech, he said: “If ‘Kid Rock for Senate’ has got folks in disarray, wait ’til they hear ‘Kid Rock for President of the U.S.A.’!”

Ultimateclassicrock.com added: “Elsewhere during the show, he performed Rod Stewart’s ‘Maggie May’ and ‘Midnight Rider’ by the Allman Brothers Band. And even though Ted Nugent has said that Kid Rock ‘ain’t running for squat,’ Rock honored his fellow Michigander with a version of ‘Cat Scratch Fever’ that segued into Stevie Wonder’s ‘Superstition.’

“Kid Rock hasn’t officially announced if he’ll be seeking the Republican nomination for Sen. Debbie Stabenow’s seat in Michigan, but the watchdog group Common Cause is taking him seriously. They recently asked the Department of Justice to see if the ‘Kid Rock for Senate’ merchandise he’s selling violates campaign finance law. His answer to them was “go f— yourselves.”

In the meantime, his upcoming Detroit concerts are the target of outrage.
