Ted Nugent Says Kathy Griffin ‘Went Beyond the Pale’ With Beheaded President Trump Photograph
Nugent, who was investigated by the Secret Service after saying (among other things) that he would “either be dead or in jail by this time next year” if President Obama was re-elected in 2012, has always maintained that his more violent-sounding speech isn’t meant to be taken literally, and he continued to take that stance during his most recent conversation with Ferguson.
“I’ve never threatened anyone. And if anybody’s still trying to believe that I did, maybe they should talk to my buddies at the Secret Service who were forced to investigate me,” he insisted. “Their conclusion, the Secret Service’s conclusion, was that I never made any threat to anyone. But the left doesn’t care about the truth, they don’t care about honesty, they don’t care about the facts. … There’s no comparison whatsoever.”
“I didn’t mean it literally” is the new “I’m sorry if you were offended”.
