Conservative musician Kid Rock claimed that Hollywood is loaded with prominent Trump fans that prefer to remain in the “closet” about supporting the former president.
In a Monday night interview with Fox News, host Tucker Carlson asked Rock, who has been a vocal Trump supporter, if there are any like minded conservatives in the entertainment industry.
The “We The People” singer reported that the former president’s aides would gossip about powerful Hollywood players, who wished to remain “in the closet.”
“I’m like, ‘those people are all gay? That’s nuts!’” Rock initially misconstrued. “They’re like, ‘no no no no, they’re closet Trump fans!’
He was shocked by how many famous supporters Trump has in liberal Hollywood, but refused to share any names.
“That was kind of mind-blowing. I’m not going to talk out of school on these people, they obviously don’t want to be out in the open for whatever reasons they have, but yeah there’s a ton of ’em,” the “Devil Without A Cause” performer remarked.
“Me and Trump talk about them a lot. They have no idea how many of us there are,” he continued. The vocal ones, sure, you know who you are, you see ’em, but they have no idea how many of us there are out there that are either Trump fans or just more conservative.”
Rock still plays golf with the former president, who he described as “so much fun,” but the interview wasn’t all about praise, particularly when the subject turned to Dr. Anthony Fuaci and extreme pandemic lockdown measures.
“F–k Fauci,” he exclaimed. “I believed all the bulls–t at the beginning,” he said. “I’m spraying off UPS packages and spraying on the door knobs, and a couple of months of that s–t, I was like, ‘what? So this is pretty much knocking out overweight, unhealthy people? I’m good.’”
“Most of my friends, after people start getting it, it was nothing, you know? And I don’t want to throw any [criticism] at people who had a bad time or passed away with it,” he concluded. “It’s horrible when anyone’s lost. But to me, I was like, ‘this is some bulls–t’.”
