U.S. Sen. Rand Paul said in a tweet Thursday that rocker Ted Nugent, known in recent years for some outrageous political comments, should apologize for calling President Barack Obama a “subhuman mongrel.”
Nugent has come under fire this week for his remarks, and on Thursday, Paul said in a tweet that the remark was “offensive.”
“Ted Nugent’s derogatory description of President Obama is offensive and has no place in politics. He should apologize,” Paul tweeted.
Nugent made the remark last month to guns.com, but it has gained more attention as the singer of “Cat Scratch Fever” and “Stranglehold” has hit the campaign trail with Republican Texas gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott.
During the 2012 presidential campaign, Nugent earned himself a visit from the Secret Service after he said he would be “dead or in jail” if Obama won another term.
