Conservative rocker Ted Nugent said during a radio appearance on Wednesday that he’s not a fan of Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, but he still likes to sit naked on the couch while loading his gun magazines and watch her on television.

Nugent made the comments on New York radio station told WIBX show “Keeler in the Morning.” The remarks were flagged by the liberal group Media Matters for America.

Nugent, a National Rifle Association board member with a history of extreme comments, was defending billionaire presidential candidate Donald Trump, who attacked Kelly for the way she moderated last week’s GOP debate. The day after the debate, Trump said Kelly had “blood coming out of her wherever” and asked him “unfair” questions.

Nugent said on the radio program Wednesday that he is a Trump fan because he believes in “bold, aggressive, unapologetic truth.”

“And I’m not a fan of Megyn Kelly, although I often turn on Fox just to look at her,” Nugent said. “Sometimes when I’m loading my magazines, I like to just look at her. And I usually sit naked on the couch dropping hot brass on my stuff.”

Nugent has made plenty of extreme comments in the past, including calling President Obama a “mongrel” and a “chimpanzee.”

“I’m afraid the gorgeous, stunning, otherwise professional and tuned-in Megyn Kelly absolutely fell of the cliff of political correctness when she proposed that obnoxious, meaningless, nonsensical, biased question for Donald Trump,” Nugent said on the radio program.

Trump called for Kelly to apologize, which she refused to do.

“Megyn Kelly absolutely broke all of our hearts as only a Megyn Kelly could when she went into the status quo world. She isn’t status quo, but she started acting, and sounding, and looking like one, and I don’t believe she is,” Nugent said.

    If he isn’t a prime example of an abomination on this earth, nothing is.

    What’s the story here? I’d always assumed that’s how your typical aging, erectile-challenged white male watches Megan Kelly.

  3. In a word, Ew! Sad to say it wouldn’t be the strangest thing Nugent has ever done.

    As far as him being a “rocker”, just what of the Nugent oeuvre has endured?

    I hope he slams his scrotum in the bolt action, and I’d pay money to read about it.

  5. why wasn’t he asked how he keeps from mistaking his penis and getting it pinched by mistake while trying to force it into the magazine?
