Ted Nugent to be interviewed by Secret Service following questionable Obama comments
After some questionable remarks he made about President Obama, musician Ted Nugent has a date with the Secret Service, which is still sorting out its own Colombian hooker scandal.
Nugent made the comments during last weekend’s annual meeting of the National Rifle Association in St. Louis.
“If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year,” said Nugent, a long-time NRA member. “If you can’t go home and get everybody in your lives to clean house in this vile, evil, America-hating administration, I don’t even know what you’re made out of.”
Some have interpreted his statements to elude to violence against Obama. According to CNN, a U.S. official said that Nugent will be interviewed by agents today. Nugent said he’s eager to sit down with them.
“We actually have heard from the Secret Service, and they have a duty, and I salute them, I support them,” Nugent told Glenn Beck. “I’m looking forward to our meeting tomorrow. I’m sure it’ll be a fine gathering backstage in Oklahoma.”
The Secret Service is still reeling in the wake of its own black eye, after at least 11 agents were implicated in soliciting prostitutes while in Colombia for a summit that President Obama attended. Three Secret Service employees left the agency yesterday following the investigation into misconduct.
