The prospect of having Kid Rock rocking the Senate sent Elizabeth Warren into panic mode on Friday when she emailed fellow Dems warning them of what could happen.
“I know a lot of people are thinking: this is some sort of joke, right?” she wrote in a fundraising email with the subject line, “Senator Kid Rock (R-MI),” according to the Boston Herald.
“Well, maybe this is all a joke — but we all thought Donald Trump was joking when he rode down the escalator at Trump Tower and announced his campaign, too," she continued.
“And sure, maybe this is just a marketing gimmick for a new album or tour — but we all thought Donald Trump was just promoting his reality show, too,” she added.
The famed rock star, notable for songs like "American Badass," hinted at running for the Michigan Senate when he posted a link to a new campaign website, kidrockforsenate.com, on his Twitter account Wednesday.
Rock assured fans in a follow-up post that this was “not a hoax” and criticized Democratic incumbent Michigan Sen. Debbie Stabenow.
Stabenow responded on her personal Twitter account Wednesday.
“I know we both share a love of music. I concede he’s better at playing guitar and I’ll keep doing what I do best: fighting for Michigan,” she wrote.
Rock then responded to Stabenow on Facebook Thursday.
“Senator Stabenow and I do share a love of music, although probably not the same kind. I concede she is better at playing politics than I am so I’ll keep doing what I do best, which is being a voice for tax paying, hardworking AMERICANS and letting politicians like her know that We the People are sick and tired of their bullsh*t!” he wrote.
