Right-wing rock music singer Ted Nugent called into "The Specialists" to bash Kathy Griffin on her disgusting photograph, but ended up having to defend his controversial comments on former President Obama. He made the comments on Friday.

"Well it's absolutely false," Nugent said, "I mean I absolutely respect the greatest law enforcement investigators in the world of the Secret Service when they were forced to come investigate me when I expressed fear of my government. My quote was that I was afraid if Obama was elected again I would either be dead or in jail because of all of the farmers and ranchers and citizens across this country who unload on me on a regular basis where they're being persecuted by various bureaucrats. And I'm sure you're well aware of that, the EPA, and the Endangered Species Act, USDA, but that's a different subject.

"I expressed fear of my government," he said. "But Pelosi and Feinstein and Boxer sent the Secret Service to investigate me and they concluded absolutely conclusively, I did not threaten anybody's life, yet Kathy Griffin and the whole left talking points including our own friend Juan Williams, just repeats the lie that I threatened the president's life, never happened."

"Well, Ted," Eboni Williams asked, "what did you mean when you said, 'Obama he's a piece of bleep, I told him to suck on my machine gun, hey Hillary you might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless bleep,' I mean, what did you mean by that if it wasn't a threat?"

"Well I'm glad you asked that because what Kathy Griffin is hysterical over and I gotta tell ya, I know why - because she's out of her mind," Nugent responded. "President Trump and his family were reacting to her vile actions."

"My statements were in response to an outrageous attempt to ban certain types of firearms that would do nothing except help bad guys with more gun-free zones," he added, "I was on stage at a rock'n'roll concert when Obama was a senator, not the president, and I made an outrageous metaphor telling him that we will not accept his gun control laws, but I never threatened anyone."

"We're talking apples and grenades here. I did nothing to harm anyone, she came out with symbolism that was truly vile," he concluded.

Nugent has been an outspoken supporter of President Trump, and was invited to the White House to meet the president, along with Sarah Palin and Kid Rock.
