Kid Rock came out of nowhere on Friday morning to attack Taylor Swift for her political beliefs and accuse her of using sex to get famous.
It’s unclear what sparked Rock’s Twitter attack (he hardly ever tweets) but he did not mince words when it comes to his feelings about Swift.
“Taylor Swift wants to be a democrat because she wants to be in movies….period,” he wrote.
And it looks like she will suck the door knob off Hollyweird to get there. Oldest move in the book. Good luck girl.”
He signed the tweet to make sure you know it definitely came from him.

In her recent interview with Vogue, Swift talked about why she did not come out and endorse a candidate in the 2016 presidential election.
“Unfortunately in the 2016 election you had a political opponent who was weaponizing the idea of the celebrity endorsement,” she said. “He was going around saying, ‘I’m a man of the people. I’m for you. I care about you.’ I just knew I wasn’t going to help. Also, you know, the summer before that election, all people were saying was, ‘She’s calculated. She’s manipulative. She’s not what she seems. She’s a snake. She’s a liar.’ These are the same exact insults people were hurling at Hillary. Would I be an endorsement or would I be a liability? ‘Look, snakes of a feather flock together. Look, the two lying women. The two nasty women.’ Literally millions of people were telling me to disappear. So I disappeared. In many senses.”
Rock, on the other hand, has been very outspoken about his support for President Donald Trump.
He attended the signing of H.R. 1551, better known as the “Orrin G. Hatch-Bob Goodlatte Music Modernization Act” in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in October 2018.
Rock went out of his way to praise Trump during the signing, saying, “I’d just like to bring it up that there’s a whole lot of people in this country that do give you a lot of credit for everything you’ve been doing for this country. That we know that some people don’t give it to you as much as maybe they should sometimes.
