“I am excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent joining me in the House Chamber to hear from President Obama,” Stockman said in a press release. “After the Address I’m sure Ted will have plenty to say.”
Outspoken conservative rocker Ted Nugent, one of President Barack Obama’s harshest critics, will attend the State of the Union on Tuesday night.
Nugent will attend the event as the guest of Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas), who recently proposed impeaching Obama over gun control.
“Stockman’s office encouraged reporters to schedule interviews with Nugent,” according to Politico.
Nugent has become known for his uncensored critiques of Obama and his administration. He has referred to the administration as “vile, evil” and “America-hating.” He also claimed Attorney General Eric Holder, Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are “criminals.”
Appearing on the “Mike Broomhead Show” on KFYI Monday, Nugent discussed why he wants to attend the State of the Union. He also promised that he planned to behave himself.
“I will do my best, as you saw me dance on the skull of Piers Morgan recently, to counter the scams and the lies of the left with irrefutable documented evidence” he said, adding that he “will respect the Office of the President.”
