Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?

Huge President Trump supporter Ted Nugent phoned into a radio program Thursday to accept responsibility for his past violent rhetoric. During the interview, he called for everyone “to tone it down,” adding that “he is not going to be engaging in that kind of hateful rhetoric anymore.”

What. The. Hell.

The 68-year-old rocker has called for the deaths of various Democratic leaders. In 2014, the NRA board member called for the assassination of then-President Obama. He called Obama a “subhuman mongrel.” In 2016, Nugent was again voicing his ominous wishes as he called for the death of then-Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.

Of course, this all became a little more real this week when a lefty madman went to a field in Alexandria and shot up a GOP baseball practice. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (La.) remains in the hospital in critical condition. He is just one of several people who were injured in the horrific incident.

The program Nugent called into was the Curtis and Eboni Show on 77 WABC.
