Kid Rock visits White House and yells at reporters they should be fired

President Trump is signing the Music Modernization Act today, which is a win for artists who want to be fairly compensated for their work.

According to Rolling Stone it will “accomplish three key things: making sure songwriters and artists receive royalties on songs recorded before 1972; allocating royalties for music producers; and updating licensing and royalty rules for streaming services to pay rights-holders in a more streamlined fashion, primarily by setting up an independent entity that will handle much of the work. Under the act, music creators will be paid more and will have a more secure way of collecting all that they’re due.”

On hand for the signing today is Kid Rock, Kanye West, Recording Academy president Neil Portnow and Recording Industry Association of America president Mitch Glazier.

While Kid Rock was walking in the White House, a reporter yelled a question at him, asking the singer if Trump should fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

The response was classic Kid Rock as he shouted back “He should fire you.”

The President is expected to have lunch later with Kanye West, who’s been an outspoken Trump supporter as of late.
