Ted Nugent: Barack Obama ‘should suck on my machine gun’

He said then-Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama should “suck my machine gun.”

When President Obama was running for reelection in 2012, the rocker additionally said, “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” This statement attracted the attention of the Secret Service.

After Wednesday’s shooting at a congressional baseball hone, Nugent has chosen to be more selective with rants and words.

“At the tender age of 69, my wife has convinced me I just can’t use those harsh terms,” he said on the 77 WABC radio program Thursday. “I cannot and will not and I encourage even my friends, slash, enemies on the left, in the Democrat and liberal world, that we have got to be civil to each other.”

“I’m not going to engage in that kind of hateful rhetoric anymore.”
