It’s not that he’s an outspoken member of the NRA. Who cares? Ted Nugent has threatened the life of the president of the United States, for which he was investigated by the Secret Service. He’s also verbally attacked Hillary ClintonHillary Rodham ClintonCNN graphic asks: Why is Gary Johnson still in the race?

Of President Obama he said: “He’s a piece of s---. I told him to suck on my machine gun.”

Of Hillary Clinton he said: “Hey, Hillary. You might want to ride one of these [machine guns] into the sunset, you worthless b----.”

Seriously, he calls the president a “piece of s---.” Calls Hillary Clinton a “worthless b----.” Calls Feinstein a “worthless whore.” Tells Boxer to “suck on his machine gun.” And he’s invited as a guest to the State of the Union address by a Republican Member of Congress?
