What does one wear to a golf date with the leader of the free world? If youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re Kid Rock, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s time to break out the stars-and-stripes slacks.
The singer Ã¢â‚¬â€ who has been a vocal supporter of President Trump and even briefly teased the possibility of running for higher office himself back in 2017 Ã¢â‚¬â€ joined the president for a golf outing on Saturday at Mar-a-Lago in Florida, where POTUS and his family spent the weekend.

While Trump swapped his MAGAÃ‚Â gear for a red cap that simply read Ã¢â‚¬Å“USA,Ã¢â‚¬Â his rock star supporter decided to up the ante with arguably the worldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s most patriotic pants. RockÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s golfing get-up featured trousers emblazoned with the American flag Ã¢â‚¬â€ stars running down one leg, stripes the other Ã¢â‚¬â€ held up by a belt with a very large buckle, plus a red sweater vest worn over a basic white polo.
Another great day on the links! Thank you to POTUS for having me and to EVERYONE at Trump International for being so wonderful. What a great man, so down to earth and so fun to be with!! KEEP AMERICA GREAT!! -Kid Rock pic.twitter.com/cSsswI5PbW

ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not the musicianÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first time bonding with Trump. In 2017, he famously joined rocker Ted Nugent and former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin for a visit to the White House, where the conservative trio mocked a portrait of Hillary Clinton. And last October he returned to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to watch Trump sign the Music Modernization Act.
Judging by RockÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s latest caption, heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s still on the Trump train.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“What a great man,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said of the president, whom he called Ã¢â‚¬Å“so down to earth and so fun to be with.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“KEEP AMERICA GREAT!!Ã¢â‚¬Â he added.
RockÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s outfit and choice of golfing buddy have both predictably riled up the internet. While some fans cheered on the duo Ã¢â‚¬â€ Ã¢â‚¬Å“ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the spirit, he is our president and not everyone can say they golfed with the President of the United States of America!Ã¢â‚¬Â wrote one supporter on Twitter Ã¢â‚¬â€ others were less than impressed.Ã‚Â
What a great picture of one guy whos always clamored on about gettin girls, bangs strippers, gettin that pu$$y, and talks about himself like heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a hard-core rock starÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.
And thenÃ¢â‚¬Â¦you have Kid Rock.#MisleadAmericaGolfingAgain

RockÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s flag pants also sparked mockery. Some called it disrespectful to the flag, while one referenced TrumpÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s embrace of a flag during CPAC just weeks ago.
Of course, the only way to disrespect it is to be black and take a knee

Nothing says “rock and roll rebel” more effectively than dressing like a ‘Let’s Make A Deal’ contestant and playing golf with the poster boy for the Christian Right.

Disrespecting the flag. Tell me again why itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s wrong to kneel during the anthem?

And then thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s this reaction from Sheryl Crow, his collaborator on the 2002 crossover hit Ã¢â‚¬Å“PictureÃ¢â‚¬Â and a rumored ex:
If nothing else, we can guess who will be playing the inauguration if Trump wins re-election.
