On Friday, Kid Rock slammed Taylor Swift on Twitter over her decision to inject more politics into her music in a seeming attempt to help Democrats ahead of the 2020 elections.

Kacey, normally a fan of liberal causes, surprised her followers by liking Kid Rock's tweet. "I've been working all day and just got on Twitter", Kacey wrote on her account.

Although Taylor Swift hasn't responded, this might be the first time in a while that she's looked like a good guy in the public eye.

"I've connected with Taylor - she knows this is NOT how I feel and we are cool".

After spending most of the 2016 presidential election quiet about her political choices, Swift explained why she remained mum during the campaign and said she didn't want her celebrity to have a negative impact on Democratic candidate Hilary Clinton. She's manipulative. She's not what she seems.

Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, says Swift is only pushing such progressive ideas because she wants to curry favor with Hollywood's notoriously left-wing power players.

"Also, you know, the summer before that election, all people were saying was 'She's calculated". Literally millions of people were telling me to disappear.

He added: "Oldest move in the book".

Rock regularly promotes US President Donald Trump on social media.

He tweeted, "Taylor Swift wants to be a democrat because she wants to be in movies... period".

"In a long Instagram post, she accused Blackburn of being "[un] willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love", while also decrying the "systematic racism" of American society.

Aside from offending almost everybody, Richie's tweet did achieve one thing: It fired the "American Badass" rocker back into relevancy.

In June, she sent a letter to Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn) asking him to support the federal Equality Act.
