Michigan native and legendary rocker Kid Rock described 2012 GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney as a “mind boggling great man” to Fox News Channel’s “America Live” host Megyn Kelley on Wednesday afternoon.
When one thinks of Romney, straight-laced, button down and every hair in place comes to mind. The the last image would be the loud, pulsating excitement that defines rock ‘n’ roll. Yet Kid Rock was one of Romney’s biggest fans.
Is the rocker a closet conservative? Is it a Michigan thing? Kelly wanted to know.
The answer was pretty simple. It was the same reason a lot of people — albeit not enough — came to the Romney camp. He grew to like the guy — a lot.
“It was mind-boggling how great of a man that guy is,” he said, adding, “I can’t say I would do that for too many people.”
Yeah, but for a rocker? He admitted to receiving a certain amount of “blow-back” for being “the only righty in the lefty industry.”
Kelly and the Rockster also discussed government scandals, media bias and his friendship with far-left loon Sean Penn.
As for 2016, he really likes what he’s seeing in Dr. Ben Carson.
“Watching him speak, his views on political correctness… I dig where that guy’s coming from.”
