Rock star and possible Michigan candidate for U.S. Senate, Kid Rock, rocked the Iowa State Fair last weekend with a mostly politics-free performance that wowed his audience. However, as the show neared its end, the singer apparently couldn’t resist telling the crowd what he thought of former San Francisco 49ers player Colin Kaepernick and his anthem protests.
From the stage, Rock said, “Football’s about ready to start. You know what? F*ck Colin Kaepernick:”
Rock regaled his audience with a trip through several musical genres including country, southern rock and rap, a music reviewer for The Des Moines Register reported. Rock also talked abut the solar eclipse, mocked Justin Bieber, and mentioned a host of other topics.
There was a brief image of President Donald Trump that flashed across the giant TV screen at one point during the show. And “Kid Rock for Senate” t-shirts were on sale, too. Though politics did not have much of a presence on stage on Sunday night.
