Kid Rock is at the White House and is not playing political games with reporters.
Captured on video walking up to the White House Thursday, the 47-year-old musician was met with a shouted question by a reporter.
“Kid Rock, should President Trump fire Jeff Sessions?” the off-camera reporter asked as the singer made his way to the West Wing.
“He should fire you,” the singer quipped without missing a beat.
From @johnrobertsFox at the WH “As Kid Rock walked into the West Wing, someone shouted a question asking whether POTUS should fire Jeff Sessions. Kid Rock responded back ‘he should fire you.’ “. It’s Thursday in Washington.

This is absolutely awful. The only reason Kid Rock should ever be at the White House is with a tour group.

According to White House spokesman Hogan Gidley, the lunch with the president, which was to include Kanye West as well as White House senior advisers Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump and football great Jim Brown, was to be “centered on President Trump’s historic work to benefit all Americans such as urban revitalization, the creation of Opportunity Zones, new workforce training programs, record highs in African-American employment, the creation of manufacturing jobs, ideas from his meeting with African-American pastors, potential future clemencies, and addressing the massive violent crime surge in Chicago.”
