Ted Nugent Posts Vid Of Clinton Being Shot: ‘I Got Your Gun Control Right Here, Bitch!’

Ted Nugent, the aging conservative rocker known for over-the-top anti-Semitic and misogynistic comments, posted a doctored video Tuesday that depicts Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) gunning down former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Nugent, who sits on the board of the National Rifle Association, posted the video on Facebook with the caption: “I got your guncontrol [sic] right here bitch!”

The video uses edited footage from a CNN presidential debate. Sanders laughs as Clinton offers an answer about gun policy, with the video edited to show him pulling a gun out of his jacket and shooting Clinton, who goes down in a spray of blood.

Nugent is infamous for his exceedingly off-color remarks. He’s previously said President Obama and Clinton should be “hung” over the Benghazi attacks and called Obama a “chimpanzee” and a “subhuman mongrel.”

You can watch the graphic video on Nugent’s Facebook page.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
