Barely a month after saying,”we have got to be civil to each other,” entertainer Ted Nugent decided to break his pledge of civility.
During a concert in Bonner Springs, Kansas, Nugent attacked former President Barack Obama and everyone who likes him.
Nugent stayed out of politics until he performed his song “Dog Eat Dog,” reported The Kansas City Star.
He gave a shout out to the draft dodging President Donald Trump, who recently invited him to the White House. Nugent then cheered on members of the U.S. military, saying that he was sorry they had to serve eight years under Trump’s predecessor, Obama. He called Obama an “absolute piece of sh*t,” and told the audience “if that offends you, you’re a piece of sh*t.”
Given Obama’s 60% approval rating at the end of his term, Nugent just called over 180 million Americans “piece(s) of sh*t.” So what does that make him?
After a gunman fired on Republican members of Congress playing softball, Nugent said he “reevaluated” his language choices. He swore that he would refrain from saying “anything that can be interpreted as condoning or referencing violence.”
“At the tender age of 69, my wife has convinced me I just can’t use those harsh terms,” Nugent confessed. “I cannot and will not and I encourage even my friends/enemies on the left, in the Democrat and liberal world, that we have got to be civil to each other.”
Nugent is famous for threatening gun violence against Democrats.
This isn’t the first time he’s used the phrase to refer to Obama. He not only called Obama a “piece of sh*t” but also alleged Obama was a “subhuman mongrel” and urged him to “suck on my machine gun.” While campaigning for Trump in 2016, Nugent encouraged Clinton to “ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless b*tch,” while waving around a machine gun.
Most people didn’t expect Nugent to keep his word, he seems far too unstable to be reliable for a pledge like that. But he did last 38 days, so that’s something.
