Ted Nugent is throwing his support in the upcoming 2020 presidential election for Donald Trump. The 71-year-old rocker played the National Anthem at a campaign rally in Muskegon, Michigan, on Saturday and offered his thoughts on the President.
Before playing the anthem, Nugent warmed up the crowd in his home state of Michigan.
“God bless real Michigan, God bless real America,” he said. “God bless the greatest president in our lifetime, Donald Trump. We will make America great again. And we will make Michigan great again. Won’t we? Live it up. Have a great hunting season. Kill lots of s–t.”
Nugent then went into playing a rocked out version of the National Anthem before briefly teasing the crowd with the famous riff from arguably his most popular song, “Stranglehold.”
Ted Nugent on Donald Trump Earlier This Year
This marks one of several times Nugent has voiced his support for Donald Trump this year. Back in July, Nugent praised the President during an interview on America This Week With Eric Bolling.
Nugent said the President is not “an entrenched, status quo, power-abusing, criminal, punk-ass politician. He’s a hellraiser, working-hard, playing-hard guy that got us back to God, family, country, work ethic, independence — you know, the man in the arena,” Blabbermouth reports.
He continued by saying: “You bust your ass to be in the asset column, earn your own way, live within your means, save for a rainy day — all that radical, extreme stuff. And he’s my guy — I really love this guy. He came just in a nick of time. And I’m speaking for all my huntin’ buddies, all my musicians, my band, my crew, my family, my neighbors, the cops that I train with, the military heroes that I hunt with — I’m speaking for the heart and soul of this country when I talk like this.”
Nugent describes himself as an avid hunter and outdoorsman. Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., recently has been pushing hard for outdoors lovers like Nugent to reelect the President. Learn more here.
