Kid Rock and Sarah Palin receive backlash after White House visit

Kid Rock, Ted Nugent and Sarah Palin all went to the White House for dinner with President Donald Trump on Wednesday night, and predictably, there was plenty of uproar to be upset about, especially when the three of them took a picture in front of a portrait of former First Lady Hillary Clinton.

The three White House visitors posed in front of the portrait, with Palin giving the camera a sassy look and Nugent giving a thumbs-up. Kid Rock, surprisingly, is the most mature and normal poser there.

After the visit, Joy Behar ripped the visit apart on The View, saying, “Is this the saddest day in in the history of the White House since the British burned it to the ground in 1814?”

Specifically, she took issue with the picture of the three of them in front of Clinton’s portrait. “They’re sore winners,” Behar said. “It’s like, ‘OK, so shut up now.’”

Former Obama White House photographer Pete Souza also joined in the backlash, though in a quiet and perfectly executed subtle jab, as always. Souza has been releasing old pictures from the Obama era that directly contradict the Trump administration’s actions and pictures, and this is no different: he shared an image of Barack Obama and his former White House chief of staff, Bill Daley, sitting under a portrait of Ronald Reagan. There are no jeering poses, just two men talking, and Souza captioned the image: “Being respectful.”





Being respectful.
