Wang Dang Sweet Poontang singer and former board member of the National Rifle Association Ted Nugent was a guest at Donald Trump’s American Freedom Tour held at the Austin Convention Center this Sunday. Before Donald Trump himself rallied Republican convention go-ers ahead of the upcoming midterms and touted his endorsements for the likes of Ken Paxton, Nugent was able to provide “words of wisdom” for the GQP:
…force, if I do say so myself, everybody in your life, to think of what the enemies of America have done in the last 14 months. And that they didn’t sneak into the White House. They lied, they cheated, they scammed, and everyday, the Democrats violate their sacred oath to the Constitution.
[loud cheers from the crowd]
And if you can’t impress your friends on that, they shouldn’t be your friends. So, thank you for inviting my beautiful wife, Shemane, and I, and my friends, and my guitar. This is a 1966 Gibson from Kalamazoo, Michigan
Does it sound as good out there as it does up here?
By the way, if you don’t eat enough medicine and you’re not clean and sober, you can’t play licks like that.
So I love you people madly, but I love you more if you went forward and just went berserk on the skulls of the Democrats and the Marxists and the Communists.
[roaring loud cheers from the audience]
So much for being dead or in jail when Barack Obama wins reelection in 2012. But, he is an important figure for the Republican Party. Ahead of the Republican primary election for US Senate in Pennsylvania, Dr Mehmet Oz has proudly touted his long list of endorsements, which includes Nugent himself; furthermore, Ted Nugent will appear at Dr Oz’s “Tele-Town Hall” later this evening.
It’s safe to say “celebrities” like Ted Nugent and public servants like Marjorie Taylor Greene are influential within the Grand Old Party. Still the Party of Lincoln?
