Day 90: Jailbait

There was no shortage of topics to write about today pertaining to policy in the Trump administration. It is 4/20 after all and we could talk about how public attitudes and the justice system approach toward marijuana have rapidly changed for the better. A broader discussion on Trump and the criminal justice system could’ve taken place. Trump’s failure to appoint a commission on cyber security within 90 days is also a notable incident.

But forget about all that for a second, I want to talk about Ted Nugent.

Last night, Trump dined with Kid Rock, Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent. While Kid Rock and Sarah Palin have no shortage of controversy attached to their names, Nugent has this competition among Trump guests in a stranglehold.

When he was 30 years old, he legally adopted a 17 year old so they could be in a relationship without him being arrested. Over the years, he has not shied away from expressing his desire for underaged girls.

He has explicitly called for racial profiling of Muslims and has compared them to animals, stating: “First rule from my hometown of Detroit – you don’t bring a net to a dogfight. You bring a silenced .22 Magnum scoped rifle and take out the dangerous animal with a head shot at the very first opportunity.”

And then there’s the racism, which seems like an interminable fire in Ted. You can hear him repeatedly using the N-Word here and then read the full transcript of Bob Mack’s legendary 1995 interview with Mr. Cat Scratch Fever. Ted Nugent thinks of people of color as animals, as lesser beings, as “subhuman mongrels.”

This is the group of individuals that Donald Trump chose to invite to dinner. What does that say about his soul?

    • Which specific part of this blog post do you find to be disingenuous? All of my statements about Ted Nugent and his (well documented) racism are backed up by cited sources and audio from Nugent himself. The entire point of my post was that having dinner with Ted Nugent does nothing to help the country.
