Kid Rock Calls for Civility in Politics, Immediately Calls Joy Behar a ‘B***h’

Musician and one-time fake Senate candidate Robert Ritchie, better known by the stage name “Kid Rock,” appeared on “Fox & Friends” on Friday morning and things, somewhat predictably, did not go well.

Ritchie discussed a number of topics with host Steve Doocy, but only one sent the “Fox & Friends” team rushing to apologize.

“We can disagree and still be cordial with one another,” Ritchie said on the topic of the divided political climate. “You know, and just talk about things without going for each other’s throats, and protesting everything, and God forbid you say something a little bit long.”

Ritchie lamented the frequency with which labels such as “racist” or “homophobic” are used to call out racism and homophobia, and called for less political correctness in our discourse.

Ritchie concluded by demonstrating exactly what he’d like to be able to get away with, telling viewers to “love everybody, except, I’d say screw that Joy Behar bitch.”

Watch the video below:

Doocy apologized on behalf of the network and tried to steer the conversation back towards the concept of disagreeing without being disagreeable, but Ritchie wasn’t quite done yet.

“You apologize for that language, right?” Doocy said as the segment was ending.

“I did apologize for the language,” Ritchie replied. “Not the sentiment.”

Doocy apologized once more and ended the segment.

  1. Couldn’t have said it better myself, Kid! joy brayhard is a whole different matter.

      1. You REALLY have to ask? That woman is one of the most divisive, if not THE most divisive, voices on TV. Turn off CNN (your self-admitted favorite news channel) just for a bit and you might have a different view of the world, philly.

        1. You are close. C-Span is my favorite channel. I listen to CNN, MSNBC CNBS, FOX- Remember my husband is a Trumpster. If you didn’t have a pic, I would swear he was posting as “banstan.” He also likes Howie Carr, would that be Newsmax TV? Don’t watch the View on a regular basis, but I have seen the show. I don’t often agree with Joy, but don’t find her “divisive” The show is called “The View” as in VIEWPOINTS. I personally like to hear other views- LOL, I read yours! Think we agree? NO.
