In Ted Nugentland, President Obama is “an evil, dangerous man who hates America and hates freedom” – and so is Piers Morgan, the CNN host who’s become an object of conservative ire since he began his gun control crusade in December. So when Morgan interviewed Nugent yesterday – at a gun store, naturally – sparks flew pretty much immediately.
Nugent accused the Brit of having an unreasonable vendetta against guns. When Morgan tried to say that he cares about “all deaths,” Nugent laid into him even more: “I don’t think you do. I think you’re obsessed with guns. Ninety-nine percent of the gun owners of America are wonderful people that you are hanging around with here today, perfectly safe, perfectly harmless, wonderful, loving, giving, caring, generous people. Would you leave us the hell alone?!”
Pretty stirring, if you’re into guns – but not quite as convincing as Chris Crocker.
