Trump Fans Livid After Fox News’ John Roberts Makes a Joke About Kid Rock Playing Golf With POTUS

Fox News’ John Roberts found himself in hot water after he tweeted an image of Kid Rock playing golf with President Donald Trump. 

It all started when Roberts tweeted out this picture showing Kid Rock with his flag-inspired attire.

He wrote: “[White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley] would not divulge who was playing golf with today.”

He then shared Kid Rock’s tweet letting the mystery out of the bag.

His tweet pissed off some Trump loyalists.

“Why do we care who President Trump plays golf with? Why is this news? Don’t let the door hit you where the good lord split you…” one Twitter user wrote.

Roberts fired back.

Another suggested that Roberts wasn’t being fair because no one cared when Barack Obama was golfing.

Roberts fired back again…and again.

He finally said next time he would write “humor alert” to avoid confusion.

Roberts then sent out his tweet again.

The Twitter hordes were still not satisfied so Roberts tried to explain.

When that didn’t work, he promised to never tell a joke again.
