In an attempt to do this Donald Trump impression, Ted Nugent announced on Instagram he is thinking about running for President. Much like Trump, the Nuge will not be running for anything in 2016 and is just trying to get as much media attention as possible for a non-existent Presidential campaign.
Outside of getting himself on some more rightwing talk shows, and use that to promote his latest album or concert tour, I can’t really see any reason why Nugent would do this.
Just for arguments sake let’s say he ran. Would he participate in debates? Would his band play at the Iowa Straw Poll? It would be funny to see how well Nugent would poll. Remember, Herman Cain lead the pack for a while so I guess anything is possible.
