Musician Kid Rock has been on Fox News Channel more than once, and is not coincidentally a Trump supporter. In his latest FNC appearance on "Fox and Friends" on Friday, the rocker took a low-brow shot at co-host of "The View" Joy Behar.
"I think the president's doing a great job with his policies," said Kid Rock. He mentioned that host Steve Doocy had asked people earlier in the segment what was their biggest concern at the moment. "Mine would be just, you know the division in the country right now, that it's so hard for people just to get past that we can disagree and still be cordial with one another.
"You know, just talk about things without going for each other’s throats, and protesting everything," he said, "And God forbid you say something a little bit wrong, you’re racist, homophobic, Islamophobic, this, that and the other. People need to calm down, get a little less politically correct. And I would say, you know, love everybody except, I'd say, screw that Joy Behar b**ch.”
Later that morning, Behar responded on "The View", saying she'd be happy to have him on the show and share a beer.
But there were consequences for him, as he lost the chance to be the Grand Marshal at this morning's Christmas Parade in Nashville, TN.
Instead, James Shaw Jr., who was a hero in the Antioch Waffle House shooting, was invited to replace him. Shaw agreed, and rode at the head of the parade in a horse-drawn carriage on Saturday morning.
Early in the morning, Rock addressed the situation on his Facebook page, expressing his intent to still enjoy the parade.
"Well folks, it is official…My parade has been rained on," he wrote. "But in the end, it is not about me. It is about the kids and the wonderful work they do at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital. Either way, myself, family and especially my granddaughter, are gonna enjoy today."
During the Waffle House shooting in April, which took place in the Antioch area of Nashville, James Shaw Jr. wrestled the gun away from the shooter, who then fled. His actions likely saved the lives of many more people in the restaurant, as the shooter had already killed four people and was about to shoot more.
Shaw was grateful for the opportunity, he said. He tweeted about the change.
@standupfangirl Thanks for speaking it into existence https://t.co/EjpSYAPDZk— James Shaw Jr. (@James Shaw Jr.) 1543621902.0
He also posted an instagram photo as he prepared to depart and lead the parade.
