Superstar Kid Rock appeared on Bill Maher‘s latest podcast and “welcomed” him to the “Republican Party” after the HBO host slammed the woke push in schools.
During “Club Random with Bill Maher” podcast on Sunday, the podcast host told the 51-year-old singer — born Robert James Ritchie — that he would be a bad parent if he had kids now in school dealing with the transgender push.
“Okay, you want me to be accepting whatever of a dude dressing up like a girl,” Kid Rock explained. “Wanting to use the girls bathroom, cutting his dick off … but you got a problem, which is not proven to be true, but you got a problem with a guy who might’ve pissed on a hooker in Russia. Come on.”
Maher said since we “have no dissenting votes on this issue” let’s “agree that what heals America, more than anything, is two people who have the acumen to figure out what they are not going to convince the other of …”
Later, Maher brought the conversation back to the topic of the gender identity push and said if he had kids he’d be a “very bad parent.”
“I would be a very bad parent right now,” the host shared. “Because I would fight. We would be very aligned on this, a lot of this. I would be a very bad parent because they would be doing things in the school that I didn’t think was appropriate.”
“Not from either side or point of view,” he added. “The subject itself. They are five. Can we just do blocks and the sky is blue before we get to drag queens? There’s levels of sophistication that are just …”
“Bill, welcome to the Republican Party,” Ritchie interjected while he held his hand out to the host to shake it.
Maher didn’t shake his hand and said the “Picture” hitmaker must not be watching his “Real Time with Bill Maher” show, stating that he’s been saying similar for years.
“You don’t have to welcome me,” the HBO host added. “And by the way I don’t want to be in the Republican Party at all.”
Ritchie told him he could make a couple of calls.
“Oh, I know the invite is there,” Maher replied. “I don’t want it. Pick another kid for your team …”
The underlying theme throughout the entire nearly 2 hour long show was both men calling for the need to find a common ground when it comes to politics and to stop hating other people simply because they are not on your team.
