Ted Nugent has no idea what ‘COVID-19’ means in bizarre rant

Seems there may be such a factor as a dumb query.

In a viral video shared through Fb Reside on April 7, “Cat Scratch Fever” rocker Ted Nugent claimed he wasn’t afraid of the massive dangerous coronavirus.

“I ain’t scared. I ain’t petrified of nothing,” Nugent, 72, started in the 12-minute clip recorded, presumably from his residence close to Jackson, Michigan, the place he runs a 340-acre looking ranch referred to as Sunrize Acres.

After waxing on about regional “songbirds,” the outspoken conservative then launched right into a rant about his canceled tour plans attributable to pandemic restrictions.

“Are you kidding me? The manufacturing corporations gained’t allow us to tour once more this yr,” stated Nugent in the meandering rant. “Soiled, bastards, mendacity, rip-off, smoke and mirrors, COVID-19 freaks.”

“Why weren’t we shut down for COVID one by means of 18?” the “Stranglehold” singer then requested in the video, which comprises some PG-13 language.

The coronavirus pandemic has led to just about three million demise worldwide, 562,000 of which occurred in the US alone since January 2020, when the outbreak sparked in North America.

Towards the Nuge’s question, the “19” of COVID-19 is a reference to the yr in which the novel coronavirus was first found — when, on Dec. 12, the Wuhan Municipal Well being Fee (WMHC) in China reported 27 instances of a extreme pressure of viral pneumonia.

“You already know, I assume I might ask you — as a result of I’m hooked on fact, logic and customary sense — and my common sense meter would demand the reply to why weren’t we shut down for COVID one by means of 18?” Nugent added.

“COVID-1 — and there was a COVID two, three, 4, 5, six, seven, eight, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 — COVID one by means of 18 didn’t shut something down however woah, COVID-19!” he mocked.

To his credit score although, there have been six different strains of coronavirus to contaminate people in latest historical past, two of which have brought on lethal epidemics: an outbreak of extreme acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in China between 2002 and 2004, and Center East respiratory syndrome (MERS), which occurred all through the Arabian Peninsula in 2012, and once more in the Republic of Korea in 2015, in line with the US Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention.
