Rock legend and gun-rights activist Ted Nugent is considering a presidential bid, according to a report in 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.”
Nugent, a New York Times bestselling author and board member of the National Rifle Association, even has a slogan: “Hi, I’m Ted Nugent. I have nine children from seven women, and I’m running for president.”
The WND columnist, has flirted with politics before, talking about a run for governor of Michigan in 2006 and 2010.
Nugent was interviewed by the Secret Service last year after saying he would “be dead or in jail” if President Obama was reelected.
He attended the State of the Union this year as a guest of Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas.
