Ted Nugent is not known for being quiet, especially when it comes to the world of politics. But in light of the recent Steve Scalise shooting, Nugent’s wife has convinced him to tone the hateful rhetoric down!
Nugent said, “At the tender age of 69, my wife has convinced me that I just can’t use those harsh terms.”
Nugent has said he would remain passionate about political issues but would do his best to “avoid anything that can be interpreted as condoning or referencing violence.”
That means he will have to refrain from comments like telling Obama to suck on his machine gun. In the light of the recent political atmosphere and the large number of liberal crazies out there, it might just be the best thing to do for a while.
Nugent is interested in possibly considering a 2018 Senate run in Michigan in the future.
Nugent said, “I’m always very interested in making my country and the great state of Michigan great again and there is nothing I wouldn’t do to help in any way I possibly can.”
Conservative Tribune reports:
Rock star Ted Nugent isn’t known to hold his tongue when it comes to politics. However, in the wake of the Steve Scalise shooting, that’s apparently going to change.
In an appearance on WABC-AM’s “Curtis & Eboni” on Thursday morning, just 24 hours after the Scalise shooting, the “Cat Scratch Fever” singer and conservative icon shocked many when he vowed to tone down what he called his “hateful rhetoric” after the assassination attempt in Washington.
