D-list comedian Kathy Griffin is playing the victim card as best she can, creating excuses and distributing blame for the unsavory consequences of her disturbing photoshoot.
During her press conference Friday, she attacked rock star Ted Nugget, saying he made very “similar” and graphic displays about former President Obama.
Nugent responded to the “absolutely false” allegation and then gave Kathy Griffin a piece of his mind.
Fox Insider reports:
On “Fox and Friends,” Nugent explained that the Secret Service was called to investigate him after he spoke at the NRA convention in April 2012.
“We need to ride onto that battlefield and chop their heads off in November,” Nugent said at the convention.
“They concluded, absolutely conclusively, I did not threaten anybody’s life,” Nugent said. “Yet Kathy Griffin and the whole left … just repeats the lie that I threatened the president’s life. Never happened.”
Eboni Williams pointed out that he also made incendiary comments about then-Democratic presidential candidates Obama and Clinton while holding two machine guns during a 2007 onstage appearance.
“Obama, he’s a piece of s***. I told him to suck on my machine gun,” Nugent said. “Hey Hillary, you might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless b****.”
Nugent acknowledged that he made an “outrageous metaphor” to attack the candidates’ gun control policies, but he nonetheless never threatened anyone’s life.
“It’s good to see that everyone is condemning Kathy Griffin’s action, because it is nasty,” Nugent said. “This is a world of terrorism, where beheading is a reality. … She actually referenced that to the president of the United States.”
He said likening his comments to Griffin’s photo is comparing “apples and grenades.”
“I did nothing to harm anyone. She came out with symbolism that was truly vile,” Nugent said. “This kind of conduct is absolutely reprehensible and unacceptable.”
