"Are you fucking shitting me?"

When musician Kid Rock publicly suggested this summer that he might run for Senate as a Republican in MI, skeptics naturally wondered whether he was instead engaged in a self-promotional marketing stunt. Rock said. "Who couldn't figure that out?"

The rock star, named Robert Ritchie in real life, had started kicking around the idea over the summer, eventually launching a 'Kid Rock for Senate' website and Twitter account.

Rock/Ritchie's exact words were "Fucking no, I'm not running for Senate!"

It's a testament to the aftershock of Donald Trump's victory that a Kid Rock bid against Sen. "I'm going on tour, too-which no one's going to print".


People close to him actually thought Kid Rock was serious as the public talked about it more. Ritchie confirmed as much in an interview with Howard Stern that aired on Tuesday morning, except, because he is Kid Rock, there were a lot more curse words involved.

Rock's new album, "Sweet Southern Sugar", will be released November 3, Stern said.

"Sounding exasperated that anyone would believe his repeated deceptions, he told Stern that after someone started the rumor of his run earlier this year, he chose to throw caution to the wind and said: "'Let's get some signs made!' We started going with it". "Are you f-- s-- me?" Bannon, the former chairman of Breitbart News, was reportedly hoping that Ritchie would unseat Democratic Senator Debbie Stabenow of MI.

Rock said when he heard the rumors he was running for elected office, his response was, "F-ck it, let's get some signs made". The only candidates running for the party's nomination so far are former state Supreme Court justice Bob Young, former congressional aide Bob Carr, and Iraq War veteran John James.
