In a brand new interview with MLive, outspoken conservative rocker Ted Nugent was asked whom he supports for President in the 2016 election. He responded: “Despite what you may have read, I’ve never endorsed Donald Trump. I’ve endorsed no one. I support Trump and Cruz, and I will support whomever the GOP nominee is. I can’t support a communist or a felon which would be Bernie and Hillary. I still believe this is America, not the Planet of the Apes Cuckoo’s Nest Clockwork Orange.”
He continued: “Income equality… let’s go to George Clooney’s house to fight for income equality. Hey, here’s a good idea all you billionaires, show us what you mean. Go to your bank and make a withdrawal and show us the equality you speak of. If you believe in income equality, show me!
“I believe people should be able to keep all of their stuff. Hillary and Bernie think that you are earning for other people who refuse to earn.
“And, if you don’t believe in the right to keep and bear arms, then fire your armed security detail. There’s a good start.”
Asked of he would ever run for public office, Nugent said: “I’ve always considered it. I think all your best politicians came from citizens who were let down by failures of their elected politicians and took the reigns themselves I’m very active across the country, but at this point I’ve declined to run for office. But it’s never out of the question. I’m healthy, I’m energized, and I actually care. I understand the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the 10 Commandments and the golden rule. That’s what America was founded on and that’s not what it operates on anymore. If I have to get in there, I will. Stay tuned. Would that be fun or what?”
Nugent in 2014 apologized for referring to President Barack Obama as a “subhuman mongrel,” calling that word grouping “street-fighter terminology” and saying he wished he used “more understandable language,” such as “violator of his oath to the Constitution.”
Nugent was investigated by the Secret Service in April 2012 after saying that he would be “dead or in jail by this time next year” if Obama was re-elected.
