Outspoken conservative rockers Ted Nugent and Kid Rock got to spend some time in the Oval Office with President Donald Trump on Wednesday night. They were joined by Sarah Palin, the former Alaskan governor and GOP vice presidential nominee, who posted photos of the visit on social media the following morning. Nugent also posted about the visit, saying that he dined with Trump to "Make America Great Again."
While in the White House, Nugent, Rock and Palin were photographed as they stopped by Hillary Clinton's portrait. Nugent's wife, Shemane, captioned the picture: "Sarah Palin, Kid Rock, and Ted Nugent walk into a bar..."
Nugent and Rock supported Trump during his presidential candidacy, with Rock recently selling a line of Trump-themed T-shirts. Among them was a shirt on which U.S. states that voted red are labeled "The United States of America" and states that went blue are called "Dumbfuckistan." Another shirt read "God, Guns And Trump," while a third suggested that Trump haters have something in their mouth.
Rock, who generally leans to the right, also supported Mitt Romney in 2012.
Nugent, a devout NRA member, suggested in a Janaury 2016 Facebook post that President Barack Obama should be hanged for treason.
Two years earlier, Nugent apologized for referring to Obama as a "subhuman mongrel," calling that word grouping "street-fighter terminology" and saying he wished he used "more understandable language," such as "violator of his oath to the Constitution."
