Rock star Ted Nugent responded to rumors that he will run for the Senate in 2018 by saying that he will do anything “to help make this country great.”
“Well, I’m a terminal ‘we the people American patriot,’ and I think I’m doing the most important political job in the world — and that is participating in the sacred experiment of self government and demanding constitutional accountability from our elected employees,” he said on Fox News.
While Nugent wouldn’t fully admit he was running, he did say that he was talking it over with “Republican friends.”
“I’m a hell raiser,” he continued. “I’m what the Founding Fathers wanted all Americans to be … and it’s all about the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the 10 Commandants, the Golden Rule — being the best that you can be, earning your own way.”
“Wow, I’m a radical,” he added sarcastically.
Nugent made it clear that he values politicians who put America first.
“(Put) America first, make America great again, job security, secure the border — you know, it’s so simple even guitar players can figure it out,” he said of President Donald Trump’s priorities.
“If you’re not pissing off the idiots, you’re an idiot,” he added, laying into the president’s many critics. “He’s not an idiot; he’s driving the idiots crazy, so I’m so proud of him.”
