Kid Rock Drops Racial Barack Obama Bombshell


Popular musician Kid Rock is one of former President Trump’s most vocal supporters. The Grammy Award nominee has been one of Trump’s most prominent supporters, making visits to the White House in 2017 and 2018. However, this time around, on an episode of Bill Maher’s podcast “Club Random” released Sunday, he recalled coming face-to-face with Obama alongside Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, in 2009 after performing at an inaugural ball geared toward young people.

Kid Rock talks about meeting Barack Obama

When he was invited to meet Obama backstage after the performance, Kid Rock said the Secret Service barred him from bringing along his teenage son to shake hands with the country’s first Black president.

“[Obama’s] a big deal, you know? It was a big deal for me too. I’m, like, ‘F—ing hope this motherf—– gets it right because I ain’t voted for him,’” he said. “Michelle looked beautiful. Barack’s cool as a cucumber in a bowl of hot sauce,” Kid Rock recalled.

“We say hello. [Obama’s] like, ‘Tell me what going on, Rock.’ I’m like, ‘I’ll tell you what’s going on. My son is sitting out the door who’s mixed. His mother’s Black. I’m, like, kinda big deal, like, you know, if you’d like to say hi to him for a second.’”

“He’s like, ‘Sure, bring him in,’” Kid Rock said Obama told his security detail. I look at the Secret Service guy. I’m like, ‘F— you.’”

He further said that he’s itching to reach across the aisle for a beer with former President Obama.

“I want to hang out with Obama and drink beer,” Rock said. “I mean there’s not a cooler — all the presidents that I’ve, you know, [been] able to meet, from Jimmy Carter up,” Kid Rock, who was born Bob Ritchie, told Maher. “He can get down,” the performer exclaimed of his desire to grab a cold one with the 44th president. “I want to drink beer with him.”
