Ted Nugent Is Talking About Running For President, Now

Ted Nugent Is Talking About Running For President, Now

Here's some terrible news to end your week with: Apparently, Ted Nugent, the guy who compared gun owners to Rosa Parks and compared President Obama to a coyote that needs to be shot, is considering running for presidency in 2016.

According to Salon, Nugent made the comment during an interview with Washington Post magazine:

“Things are just so wrong in the country now,” Nugent said. “And I know that my answers would make things wonderful, unless you just refuse to produce, and then I’d recommend that you move to Canada. Or Illinois.”

Oh boy. His wife Shemane even thinks he might be seriously about it as well. "He’s talked about it before," she told the magazine, "but this time he seems more serious. People are constantly asking him to run." 

Who are those people? Apparently, at least one is his friend and former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee: He also commented to the magazine, "Ted says things in public that I wouldn’t even say in private, but what people look for more than anything is authenticity...if he runs, I'll go help him."

Right. Happy belated July 4th, everyone.
