To the surprise of no one, Ted Nugent railed against the government and applauded its recent shutdown while making the rounds to promote his new album.
The 65-year-old Michigan rock great and staunch firearms advocate cited a recent piece he wrote for a conservative website entitled “Make My Day, Shut it Down.”
“The government is so out of control. It is so bloated and infested with fraud and deceit and corruption and abuse of power,” Nugent said Monday.
The American government and people, "it breaks my heart to say … will go down as the dumbest, most unappreciative society in the history of humankind.”
Nugent said government overreach and incompetence goes back decades, but it’s at its worst under President Barack Obama, the “monster in the White House."
Obama, he notes, “wouldn’t qualify to drive my tour bus.”
