Uh, I don't really know where to begin with Kid Rock. He is generally irrelevant as a musician but is making a run at the Senate. Yes, the federal legislative body that helps run the country. He hasn't announced an official campaign but is making campaign speeches at concerts and is already under investigation for illegal campaign finance practices. While performing a concert in Grand Rapids, Kid pulled out a podium bearing a modified presidential seal and gave a rhyming rocking stump speech that got his crowd going.
Nothing says "I'm a United States Senator," like a Facebook post that tells a group of concerned citizens to F off. Right? Right, if you're Kid Rock.
Jimmy Kimmel recently spoke out against white supremacy during a late night monologue and upset a lot of people. Our publishing of said monologue created the same effect. Instead of going at his detractors with bared teeth, Kimmel simply read their thoughts out loud on air while blurring out their names, noting where they were right, and where they erred. If there's one thing that can begin to heal our differences it's a rational, calm, conversation.
According to Charlie Daniels, statues don't talk, preach or shout out, so if you don't like them, don't look at them.
During a recent interview with NewsMax TV, Daniels had a lot to say about President Donald Trump and Confederate statues coming down across the country.
When asked if the statues should come down, Daniels compared it to ISIS, "That's like, that's what ISIS is doing.. there were pieces of history that they didn't like, they were taking them down... where does it stop?"
Daniels also went on to say, "Robert E. Lee, for instance, was one of the most honorable people in our history... If you don't like it, don't look at it."
He went on to compare the Confederate statues to unsavory movie posters.
Jimmy Kimmel has a platform and he used it on Tuesday night (August 15) to address the elephant in the country-- President Donald Trump. For 12 minutes, Kimmel spoke insightfully, with humor and passion about the President and everyone's feelings. He also threw out a plan for maybe how to get the country out of this situation. It might not work, but it has to be an option.
I want to speak to those of you who voted for Donald Trump. And first of all, I want to say I get it. I actually do. You're unhappy with the way things were going. You wanted someone to come in and shake things up. You didn't want business as usual. Nothing ever seems to get done. It's always the same. These candidates make a lot of promises that go nowhere. It happens over and over again. And you're sick of it.
And so this guy shows up riding down a golden escalator. He's not part of the political establishment. In fact, he's the opposite of that. He's a billionaire — maybe. He's written books. He's not politically correct. He's not even correct, usually. He talks tough. He wants to drain the swamp. Sometimes he can be funny. He rips into his opponents in a way politicians never do, have never done before.
And you thought, you know what? This guy's different and that's what I want. Different. Let's roll the dice, let's get him in there, have him run the country like a business. Cut the dead weight, toughen everyone up. Let's shake this Etch-a-sketch hard and start over.
So you vote for him. You pick him over Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz and John Kasich and a dozen other Republicans whose names we forgot. And ultimately he beats them. He strolls in, he beats all of these guys. These guys who have been in politics forever. And then he beats the ultimate political insider, Hillary Clinton, a woman who's been running for office — a woman who ran for president of her mother's uterus in the womb. He beats her. Everyone said he wouldn't. But he did. And it's exciting because this is your guy. You picked a horse like 35-1 and somehow it paid off.
ABC President Says Tim Allen's Politics "Had Nothing To Do" With The Cancellation Of "Last Man Standing"
ABC announced in May that they would not be renewing their family comedy "Last Man Standing" starring Tim Allen, a noted political conservative. Fans reacted by starting a petition on Change.org and loudly decrying what they saw as the network's intolerance of conservative actors. During a Television Critics Association press tour appearance, ABC entertainment president Channing Dungey broke the silence on the issue saying, "Tim Allen's personal politics had nothing whatsoever to do with [the show's cancellation]."
Dixie Chicks Release Captivatingly Raw Live Version of "Not Ready to Make Nice" (Which You'll Probably Hate)
After a decade of not taking the stage in North America, the Dixie Chicks returned last year with their thrilling MMXVI Tour, featuring hits, controversy and a smoldering live version of "Not Ready to Make Nice."
The song won three GRAMMYs-- Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal, but the trio was still not welcomed back into the country music fold. And now, in conjunction with a live CD and DVD version of the show, the Chicks have released a video of their political anthem.
