Sarah Palin, Kid Rock and Ted Nugent walked into the White House…. and that’s not the beginning of a bad joke, but something that actually happened.
We know this because the former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate shared photos of the trio’s visit on Facebook, while the New York Times reports that President Donald Trump hosted “a white-china private dinner, a room-by-room tour and free-range policy chat.”
“We were there for four hours, man!” said Nugent, a loyal Trump supporter best known for his guitar-shredding ’70s hits “Cat Scratch Fever” and “Wango Tango,” adding: “He gave us a wonderful personal tour of every room and talked about the origins of every carpet and every painting — there was a Monet — and then we had dinner.”
At one point, the trio posed in front of the official White House portrait of Hillary Clinton (who has been excoriated by all three in the past), with Nugent revealing one of the three encouraged everyone to extend their middle fingers for the photo.
“I politely declined,” Nugent said. “Let the juxtaposition speak for itself.”
Sharing some photos on Facebook, Palin wrote: “President Trump’s invitation for dinner included bringing a couple of friends,” adding: “Asked why I invited Kid Rock and Ted Nugent, I joked, ‘Because Jesus was booked.’”
The trio’s visit to the White House did not go unnoticed in the Twitterverse, with numerous celebs taking to social media to offer their often-hilarious comments about the visit, with such stars as James Corden, Chelsea Handler and many more throwing in their two cents.
Those Twitter sentiments were echoed on Friday morning’s edition of “The View”, with Joy Behar and her co-hosts shredding the behaviour demonstrated by the trio of “sore winners.”
“What was so offensive to me was Sarah Palin said that she brought them because Jesus wasn’t available, so she’s sort of comparing these folks with Jesus,” added Sunny Hostin. “The other thing that was interesting, remember when President Obama had Common the rapper and the poet come in to celebrate poetry in the White House? Sarah Palin tweeted, ‘The judgement is just so lacking of class and decency and all that’s good about America with an invite like this.’ Really? Because Ted Nugent called our former president a ‘subhuman mongrel.”
Added Sara Haines: “You’re in the White House, bring a little class with you.” Watch:
