The novel coronavirus is the sworn enemy of millions across the globe, but every once and a while, I feel kind of sorry for it. According to The Huffington Post, coronavirus set up shop in Ted Nugent’s lungs and gave him COVID-19 and now coronavirus has to go through the rest of this pandemic carrying that stigma around. As for COVID-19 hoaxer Ted, he went about revealing his diagnosis in the most racist, ignorant, and disgusting way possible. Ted posted an 8-minute long message to fans on Facebook saying he “got the Chinese shit” in between hacking coughs, spitting, and belching Obama’s name. So you’ll have to forgive me for feeling just a little bit sorry that Miss Rona has to experience that shit from the inside.
Rock musician Ted Nugent announced he has tested positive for the coronavirus in a Facebook live video in which he repeatedly used racist slurs to refer to COVID-19, spit on the floor and promoted anti-vaccine conspiracy theories.
“Everybody told me that I should not announce this,” the conservative rocker said in the video on Monday.
Nugent, a staunch supporter of ex-President Donald Trump, previously called the pandemic a scam and has railed against public health restrictions.
“I have had flu symptoms for the last 10 days. I thought I was dying. I mean, just a clusterfuck,” Nugent said in the video. “I got the Chinese shit.”
Nugent said he had a “stuffed-up head” and “body aches.”
“My God, what a pain in the ass. I literally can hardly crawl out of bed the last few days. But I did, I crawled,” he said.
Ted then went on about how he asked his doctor why he should be tested because he didn’t see the point. The doctor said it’s good to know, presumably so you don’t go spreading it around to others. Luckily, when most people see Ted Nugent they instinctively run the other way. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram adds:
“I’ve never been so sick in all my life,” Nugent said. He went on to suggest there is no point in being tested for COVID-19 and downplayed the need for social distancing, mask wearing and being vaccinated against the virus.
Ted says he’s quarantining now but he also says a lot of things that are flat-out lies.
Earlier this month, Nugent said his 2021 tour had been canceled because of the pandemic. He lamented his frustration with the decision by production companies, which he called “COVID-19 freaks”
Nugent, 72, has also misled fans about the number of people who have died from the virus, its death rate, and comparisons with the Spanish Flu of 1918, Snopes reported.
He asked why the country was not shut down for COVID one through 18, incorrectly suggesting there have been 18 years of coronavirus infections. (The “19” in COVID-19 refers to 2019, the year the virus was discovered.)
In August 2020, Nugent called the coronavirus a “leftist scam to destroy (then-President Donald Trump).“
Nugent said he has not received a COVID-19 vaccine because he does not trust them. On Christmas, Nugent said the coronavirus is “not a real pandemic and that’s not a real vaccine.”
Can’t believe I’m saying this but — my condolences go out to coronavirus for contracting this terrible, nasty disease.
