"It's so hard for people to get past that we can disagree and still be cordial with each other, and just talk about things without going for each other's throats and protesting everything. God forbid you say something a little bit wrong, you're racist, homophobic, Islamicphobic -- this, that and the other," he told "Fox & Friends" host Steve Doocy in front of fans in Nashville, Tennessee.
"People need to calm down, get a little less politically correct," he continued. "And I would say, you know, love everybody. Except, I'd say screw that Joy Behar bitch."
The crowd hanging out in the background of the live shot laughed and applauded. Doocy appeared amused as well, but at least tried to act like the adult in the room. "You can not say that. We apologize for that," the conservative TV star said.
"I mean lady," Kid Rock interjected.
"Listen, she's just got a different point of view than you," Doocy offered, and his rock star subject conceded, "Exactly. Maybe we'll go on ['The View'] and we'll hash it out, and we'll talk about it. Anyway, exactly, aside from joking -- which I was -- is just hash it out with people. Have your thoughts and ideas, but be able to still go have a beer with somebody."
"Just say, 'Hey, we all love this country and let's have different ideas, but try to move forward and be more together and realize at the end of the day, we're all Americans.'"
"How great was that?" Doocy asked the audience before asking, "You apologize for that language, right?"
Kid Rock proceeded to declare, "I did apologize for the language, not the sentiment."
Hmmm, we must have missed the apology.
We eagerly await Behar's response and wonder if this will become a hot topic on "The View" or if the ladies of the ABC daytime talk show will invite the "Bawitdaba" singer on the program to "hash it out."
