Conservative rock icon Ted Nugent skewered Democratic presidential candidate Hilary Clinton in a blistering Facebook post this week, describing the former secretary of state as a “deplorable” person and a “nasty criminal.”
Speaking to her followers at the LGBT for Hillary Gala in New York City on Sept. 9, Clinton described supporters of GOP nominee Donald Trump as “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic.”
The former first lady also added she feels “half” of Trump’s supporters belong in a so-called “basket of deplorables.”

Trump has described Clinton’s remarks as an attack on tax-paying voters, and has said the statement shows “her true contempt for everyday Americans.”
Many of Trump’s supporters, meanwhile, have embraced the word “deplorable,” even going as far as changing their names on Twitter to incorporate the label as a show of support for Trump.
Ted Nugent, who first gained commercial and critical acclaim for his music in the 1970s, took issue with Clinton’s comments publicly on Facebook Tuesday — turning them against her in a passionate defense of “good, productive Americans.”

“According to one of or quite possibly THE most deplorable, dishonest, lying, cheating, thieving, America hating scam artrists of alltimes, Hillary Clinton, my family, friends & all really good, productive Americans are delporable,” the outspoken singer and guitarist wrote.
The Motor City Madman continued:
Deplorable because we know we should enforce our immigration laws.
Deplorable because we don’t want to allow anyone into America without first knowing their background and what they believe.
I’m deplorable because, unlike the legions of politically correct zombie supporters of this nasty criminal Hillary, I know political correctness in all its various machinations is a public cancer that rots free expression & is destroying the very foundations of America.
Deplorable because I believe Fedzilla give-away programs are soul rotting addictive dope that creates dependent addicts of sheeple.
I’m deplorable because I know the daily engineered recidivism gun-related violence in Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, Newark & South Central and other urban runaway punkcenters is the result of a lack of responsible parents in the home—not easy access to guns.
Deplorable because I know President Obama has done less for black Americans than any other president in modern times.
I’m deplorable because I know that less government is best government.
Deplorable because I know the engine of our nation has been strangled by President Obama & braindead bloodsucking leftists over the last seven and half years and that Hillary will continue to choke it to death if she’s elected.
Deplorable because I know that a man, regardless how he feels about his sexual orientation on a given day, does not need to be in the same restroom as a little girl.
Deplorable because I know I’m a free man, not some blind fool with a ring through his nose.
Nugent added, “To Hillary, I’m deplorable. Contrarily to my Americans solidly in the asset column addicted to logic, truth, common sense, goodwill, decency & pragmatism, I’m off the charts adorable.”
The 67-year-old outdoors and firearms enthusiast concluded his post: “Make America America again-Vote Trump & educate all the people in your lives to know evil when they see & hear it, and vote Trump in November or say good-bye to the land of the free & the home of the brave.”
Nugent has been highly critical of Clinton on his recent tour.
