Kid Rock made headlines earlier this year after he blew up a case of Bud Light after a campaign the beer brand did with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney. “F— Bud Light, and f— Anheuser-Busch,” Rock said before shooting up a case of Bud Light with an AR-15. He has since popped open a can of Bud Light and sipped on the American beer.
Political commentator Tucker Carlson was also seen walking with Trump into the stadium.

As one video showed the crowd erupting when Trump walked in alongside Carlson and Kid Rock.
“Donald Trump greeted by cheers arrives at MSG to attend UFC 295 flanked by Kid Rock, Dana White and Tucker Carlson,” an X user said.
As many know, Trump is currently on trial as he was questioned for intentionally inflated his property and assets — in other words committing fraud.
During the court session on Wednesday, October 25, Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s former lawyer, and recent foe, was asked if Trump or Allen Weisselberg directed him to inflate the numbers, to which Cohen responded with, “Not that I recall.”
One of Trump’s attorneys, Cliff Robert, then asked for a directed verdict as he argued the key witnesses testified that the defendant didn’t tell Cohen to inflate the numbers. The judge denied the request, which is when the former President immediately got up and stormed out of the courtroom. The action forced the Secret Service agents to chase after him.
Outside the courtroom, Trump reportedly said, “The witness just admitted that we won the trial. And then the judge should end this trial immediately.” Plus, during a break in the trial, Trump told reporters, “This judge is a very partisan judge, with a person who’s very partisan sitting alongside him, perhaps even much more partisan than he is.”
