Ted Nugent Explodes in Profane Rant on CBS News
Ted Nugent responded to the notion that he’s not a moderate during an interview on ‘CBS This Morning’ by, well, flipping out a bit, offering — in off-color language — to perform sexual acts on both the male reporter and a nearby female producer if they could find someone who cares more about people and the planet than he does.
It all happened in the middle of an otherwise very calm interview focusing on the fallout from Nugent’s recent anti-President Obama statements, which, as reported, included a very friendly meeting with the Secret Service. When reporter Jeff Glor asked if Nugent understood why people didn’t consider him a moderate, the guitarist began getting extremely worked up, talking about his admirable record of charity work, before concluding:
“I’m an extremely loving and passionate man, and people who investigate me honestly, without the baggage of political correctness, ascertain the conclusion that I’m a damned nice guy … and if you can find a screening process more powerful than that, I’ll suck your [bleep],” then turning to an off-camera female producer and adding, “Or I’ll [bleep] you, how’s that sound?”
Glor was quick to point out, as you can see during the full version of the story, that Nugent promptly and fully apologized to both CBS employees after the interview. It was also revealed that the guitar legend made a trip to the emergency room to deal with a painful case of kidney stones a short while after the interview, which certainly would put us in a bad mood.
