Rock singer Ted Nugent had once again backed President Trump, saying he is “the heart and soul of the best American families out there.”
Nugent has been very outspoken about his political stance on gun ownership and his love for the current president.
“I genuflect at the altar of this great man,” Nugent expressed. “He is just pulling off miracle after miracle. Just praise God for that. This is one of those divine intervention moments, like the founding fathers. Believe me when I tell you that.”
The 71-year-old singer also goes onto say the billionaire businessman and president is just any regular person.
“I’ve been so honored and humbled to spend time with the great man,” Nugent said. “There’s something very spiritual about this crazy guy. I say ‘crazy’ — he’s crazy like you; he’s crazy like me; he’s crazy like this welder I know down the road that, no matter what welding job you have, he shows up early and he welds something that will never break, and then he goes to his next welding job, and he leaves a vapor trail of high energy, of positive spirit.”
Controversial Past for Nugent
In the past, Nugent has often backed President Trump throughout all his accusations and scandals, while he continuously bashed democratic leaders like former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
“Here’s the bottom line: the most admirable attribute of a human being is believability,” Nugent said. “If you believe this man, you believe he believes in what he says and that he represents your beliefs, that identifies President Donald J. Trump. He wants the United States to be the winner. He wants to benefit the United States Of America because this is the last best place.”
Nugent is also on the board for the gun right group, the National Rifle Association (NRA). In addition, in 2016, he saw heavy backlash for a post on Facebook that said Obama and Clinton should be tried for treason and hanged for their dealings during the terrorist attack in Benghazi.
