Ted Nugent Snaps At Reporter In Morning Show Interview

Ted Nugent lived up to his “Motor City Madman” reputation during a television interview with “CBS Morning News.”

The cordial interview from Nugent’s Texas ranch took a bizarre turn when Jeff Glor hinted that for Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney to win he’ll need support from moderates. Nugent said he was not moderate and …

“Call me,” Nugent continued in a raised, irritated voice, “when you meet someone who does that more than I do. Because that’s really moderate. In fact, you know what that is? That’s extreme. … I’m an extremely loving, passionate man, and people who investigate me honestly, without the baggage of political correctness, ascertain the conclusion that I’m a damned nice guy. … And if you can find a screening process more powerful than that, I’ll [expletive]. Or [expletive]. How’s that sound?”


Glor explained later the second part of the tirade was directed to a female CBS producer who was off-camera. In a more pleasant exchange earlier in the interview, Nugent told Glor the meeting with the secret service was “adorable.” The musician hinted he told the agents they should be investigating their bosses. He went on to further describe the meeting:

I don’t think their concern was that I threatened someone. I think their concern is that someone claimed I threatened someone. In fact, I got to tell you, and I don’t mean to put any professionals on the spot, but — and I don’t have the greatest hearing in the world — but I thought I heard something to the point of, “I didn’t think so.”

Nugent blamed his energy on a kidney stone, which was removed right after the interview in an emergency room. Do you believe him?
