Ted Nugent has defended Donald Trump after he was accused of making racist remarks about Democratic congresswomen.
Trump’s tweets were further highlighted by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who said the president wants to “make America white again.”
In a new interview with “The Laura Ingraham Show”, Ted Nugent reacted to the ongoing drama, saying:
“Where does the lie start that this president is a racist or a b*got or he doesn’t like gays or lesbians? Where does this come from? I know President Trump. People say I’m a racist. I’m anything but a racist. People who call me a racist are the racists. If you’re gay or lesbian or you’re confused about your gender, I don’t know anybody who cares. We want you to be happy; we want you to be able to make your own choices in life. But where does this lie that this tidal wave of b*gotry and hate comes from the right?
“I’ve been in this world for 71 years this year”
“I’ve never met a racist. I knew the [Ku Klux] Klan existed and I knew people who were against freedom, and I know there are N*zis and g*ofballs all over the world, but when you prioritize your quality of life and you always judge based on content of character, racists won’t come near you; b*gots won’t enter your life.
“Where does she get the lie, where does the left get the lie that President Trump wants to make America white again?”
“Nancy Pelosi, what kind of mind-altering chemicals are you on to think such a nasty, false, hateful thing about our great president, who I happen to believe is the greatest president, and he really is making America America again. So I’m confused, like everybody who lives the truth, logic and common sense, why the hate. And not only that but every reference to their hate, it’s unsubstantiated — it’s all a lie.”
He further added:
“Write this down: the president doesn’t exclude anyone — period”
“What level of effort is necessary to continue to lie to yourself about this president, about Republicans, about conservatives, about the NRA…? I mean, to what level of effort do you have to go to lie to yourself to make up these nasty, hateful lies about all the best people in the world.
