"If we don’t get it right this time, I’m going to run,"

CBS Detroit

Never one to keep his mouth shut when it comes to presidential politics, rocker Ted Nugent talked to WWJ 950 on the eve of his latest show and weighed in on Republican nominee Donald Trump—and his own presidential aspirations.

“You know, I don’t want to, I thought that more qualified, brighter individuals would step to the fore and I believe that with all his shortcomings, Donald Trump is anything but perfect, but compared to Hillary Clinton he qualifies as Michael the Archangel,” Nugent said about whether he supports Trump.

He urged people to demand accountability from our next president, warning a “suicidal spiral into hell” will ensue, if the public does not.

And then he dropped this bomb:

“If we don’t get it right this time, I’m going to run, and I know how to fix America, it’s so simple it’s stupid. The hundred million Americans looking for work or looking at a list of jobs they’re not willing to do. You can’t do that anymore. If you want to act like a French person, move to France, only productive Americans who earn their own way get to keep the stuff they earn. If you don’t earn it, you don’t get it,” he said.
