Ted Nugent on Obama re-election: 'Pimps, whores and welfare brats' have a president
It may come as no surprise that conservative veteran rock musician Ted Nugent, who once told President Barack Obama to “suck on my machine gun,” is less than pleased with the outcome of the election last night.
Earlier today, Nugent tweeted, “Pimps whores & welfare brats & their soulless supporters hav [sic] a president to destroy America.”
He followed with several more tweets, calling Obama a “subhuman varmint” and telling Americans “u just voted for economic & spiritual suicide. Soulless fools.”
Nugent has never been shy about sharing his disdain for the president, recently saying he “represents everything bad about humanity.”
In April of this year, he called the Obama administration “vile,” “evil” and “America-hating” at the National Rifle Association convention.
“If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year,” said Nugent.
This remark, which Nugent allegedly meant as a “metaphor,” prompted a visit from the U.S. Secret Service.
Nugent is not the only conservative celebrity expressing their disappointment with the election results on Twitter.
Both Donald Trump and former Saturday Night Live actress Victoria Jackson took to the social network to share their dismay with followers.
“This election is a total sham and travesty. We are not a democracy!” Trump tweeted yesterday, among other things.
Before that he tweeted, “Our country is now in serious and unprecedented trouble…like never before.”
And Jackson wrote repeatedly, “America died” and said she couldn’t “stop crying.”
