Musician Ted Nugent stumped for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney at the NRA convention over the weekend.
The Secret Service is reportedly “aware” of Republican rocker Ted Nugent‘s anti-Obama rant last weekend.
After Nugent went off on the president at the National Rifle Association’s convention over the weekend, a spokesperson for the Secret Service told NYMag.com it will conduct an “appropriate follow up.”
Speaking at the convention, Nugent said the government is “wiping its a— with the Constitution,” and suggested he’d rather be dead than suffer four more years under the Obama administration.
“If Barack Obama becomes the President in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year,” Nugent said, urging each person to get a “couple of thousand” people to cast their ballot for Mitt Romney.
“If you can’t galvanize and promote and recruit people to vote for Mitt Romney, we’re done,” Nugent said, at one point adding, “We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?”
The gun enthusiast officially endorsed Romney last month on Twitter after “a long heart-and-soul conversation.”
The wild rant against the President is not Nugent’s first.
The ’70s guitarist — who once considered running for governor of Michigan — complained during a concert that “Obama’s a piece of sh—, and I told him to suck on my machine gun.” He has also called now Secretary of State Hillary Clinton a “worthless b—.”
