In a garrulous internet-radio interview with conspiracy buff Pete Santilli, rock singer and firearms advocate Ted Nugent called President Barack Obama a #$%$, declared that Cuban people don’t know how to wash themselves and decried the life-threatening hazards of “fat chicks.” According to Media Matters, Nugent also bragged about his alcohol and drug free life and claimed that he wants to punch filmmaker Michael Moore “in the throat.”

And then he hired, appointed and associates with communists,” Nugent told Santilli. “If you can’t see through the dishonesty and the scamming of this president with that scenario fresh in your mind, then that’s literally
