VIDEO: Ted Nugent loses temper during CBS interview

Ted Nugent lost his temper during a recent interview with CBS This Morning.

The session with CBS’ Jeff Glor began with Nugent addressing comments he made at a recent NRA meeting which led to an investigation by the Secret Service, following claims that Ted had threatened President Obama (for more, see story here.)

The conversation naturally led to politics and Nugent’s endorsement of Republican Mitt Romney (half-hearted, as it may be – for details, see here), when Ted determined that he had to defend his own character.

"I offer you this: call me when you sit down across from someone who has more families with dying little boys and girls who get a call to take them on their last fishing trip in life,” said Nugent. “Call me when you meet someone who does that more than I do! Because that's really moderate. 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 suck your d**k."

Ted then turned to a female producer off camera and added, "Or I'll f**k you. How's that sound?"

Following the interview, Glor explained that Nugent's wife forced him to apologize to the producer; the next day, Ted phoned the reporter to tell him that he was rushed to the emergency room after their interview to have a kidney stone removed - “that’s what he said may have contributed to his high level of energy.”
