The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur blasted Ted Nugent on Wednesday, claiming the conservative heavy metal singer and guitarist was all talk.

Over the weekend, Nugent told a crowd at the National Rifle Association (NRA) convention that he would be “either be dead or in jail by this time next year” if Obama was re-elected and that they needed to “chop their heads off in November.”

Despite Nugent’s braggadocio, Cenk noted that he had dodged the Vietnam war.

“He wasn’t even close to going to Vietnam,” Cenk said. “It wasn’t like he couldn’t. He could have. In fact, he actively avoided it. But that’s not the most interesting part of the story, it’s how he did it.”

Cenk then explained that Nugent had dodged the draft by avoiding personal hygiene, eating as much junk food as he could and eventually defecating and urinating on himself before his Draft Board Physical.

“He literally crapped his pants when he had a chance to go to war.”
