Prez welcomes racist Nugent and pals
ROCKER Ted Nugent — who once said he wanted Barack Obama to “suck on my machine gun” — had dinner at the White House with President Trump on Wednesday night.
“Well well well looky looky here boogie chillin’. . . your 1 & only Motor City Madman . . . dined with President Donald J Trump at the White House!” Nugent wrote on Facebook after his get-together with Trump, Kid Rock and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
The trio also spent time with Trump in the Oval Office.
Palin — an early high-profile Trump supporter — said the President invited her and told her she could bring some friends. She invited Kid Rock and Nugent, who once defended apartheid by saying black South Africans “walk around naked” and “wipe their butts with their hands.”
In 2012, Nugent was questioned by the Secret Service for making threats against then President Barack Obama, whom he has also called “a piece of s--t.”
The “Cat Scratch Fever” singer and NRA board member, in lengthy posts on Facebook and his blog, said Thursday the group griped about political correctness at dinner.
“We discussed . . . how entrenched status quo political correctness has wrecked everything it has touched and how his administration is focused and dedicated to get back to the U.S. constitutional basics of government of, by and for the people,” Nugent wrote.
“We discussed specifically the counterproductive follies of the Endangered Species Act and the Environmental Protection Agency, as well as the US Fish & Wildlife Service, BLM (Bureau of Land Management) and other out of control bureaucracies,” he added.
One photo from the White House showed a mugging Palin, Rock, whose real name is Bob Ritchie, and Nugent posing in front of a portrait of Hillary Clinton from her time as First Lady.
Nugent has in the past called Clinton a “worthless b---h” who should be “hung” and has joked about her getting shot.
Nugent, a fervent gun enthusiast, has been outspoken in his support of conservative causes and supported Trump during the campaign.
The musician has also repeatedly made racist and anti-Semitic statements and drew attention to Trump’s support from questionable groups.
In February 2016, he posted an image on Facebook of prominent Jewish politicians like Michael Bloomberg, California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Sen. Chuck Schumer, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and others, each beside an Israeli flag under the banner “So who is really behind gun control?”
Palin, too, is a fervent Trump supporter and was credited with helping provide him momentum when she endorsed the then-candidate in Iowa right before that state’s caucuses.
“A great night at the White House,” she wrote on Facebook Thursday.
The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee said, “It was the highest honor to have great Americans who are independent, hardworking, patriotic, and unafraid share common sense solutions at the White House.”
As for her choice of guests, she said she picked the pair “because Jesus was booked.”
“The company was wonderful and dinner was beyond superb, with baked Alaska for dessert,” she wrote. “Thanks to the outstanding White House staff, chefs, Secret Service, and of course the President for making it such a special evening.”
Trump shakes hands with Nugent, who once called Barack Obama a “subhuman.” The rocker also posed with Palin and Kid Rock, making taunting gestures at Hillary Clinton portrait.
