Ted Nugent brags about ‘sexy gals’ at concert so poorly-attended that tickets dropped from $67 to $5

Ted Nugent, who occasionally takes time away from making racist and anti-Semitic statements to play music, failed to draw much of a crowd at a Friday night concert, driving the promoters to end “Laconiafest” in New Hampshire a day early, the Laconia Daily Sun reports.

According to Ultimate Classic Rock, Friday night was the kick-off Nugent’s summer 2016 Sonic Baptizm tour. He gave the website an interview after the show where he appeared to have a different concept of reality, boasting that it had gone well.

“There sure were a gaggle of beautiful, sexy, skinny gals out there tonight and as always, it is incredibly inspiring to see everybody smiling and dancing to my songs,” he told UCR. “Tonight was an out of the park musical home run! Lucky, lucky me!”

According to the Sun, the festival has been beset by abysmal ticket sales and failed to draw much of an audience Friday — even though tickets to see Nugent were slashed from $67 for general admission to $5. The band scheduled to play Saturday cancelled.

What’s worse is that the promoters appeared to have picked up and run, leaving the city and employees with unpaid bills and wages, according to the Sun.

Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Poison’s Bret Michaels also played during the middle of the week and managed to attract larger crowds, the Sun reports.

“However, by Friday management of what remained of the event had changed hands and employees had been let go, many owed unpaid wages.”

Nugent last toured in 2014, but was beset by controversy. Some venues cancelled shows amid complaints over his racist comments. Nugent blamed the cancellations on “sick, sick, stoned, hygiene-challenged Michael Moore fans [who] call all the promoters, they call all the venues, they call all my sponsors, every day.”

Maddow warns Russia is interfering in the 2020 election in ‘exactly the same way’ as they did in 2016

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on Monday warned that Russia and the Republicans are running the "exact same play" against Democrats in 2020 -- and this time will be aided by the United States Justice Department.

"And they are playing it again already for the next election. And some of it is happening just like it did in 2016. And some of it is worse and I think it’s going to be more powerful than it was in 2016. In part because this is a second draft for these guys, right? They ran this play in 2016. They worked out some of the kinks," she explained. "Now they’ll do it again with the benefit of knowing what worked for them and what didn’t work the first time around. It’s a second draft. It’s going to be better and more polished."

Marco Rubio says it was a ‘bad look’ for Trump to pick Doral for G7 — after several days of defending the decision

Published

On Monday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) admitted that it was a "bad look" for President Donald Trump to call for hosting the next annual G7 summit at the Trump National Doral golf resort in Miami, Florida:

“Obviously you know, given everything that's going on, it was a bad look,” Rubio said of G7 at Doral, though he doubts Trump wanted to make money. “As a Floridian I thought it was great that they were going to come down, especially in June when we don't have as many visitors."

‘You lost’: Internet mocks Trump for cheering on ‘great vote’ — that Republicans lost

Published

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), who sits on the House Intelligence Committee accidentally mistook a satirical article with a fake transcript of President Donald Trump's call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25. While Schiff apologized for the error, Trump has called for his immediate impeachment.

Impeachment is outlined in the U.S. Constitution and the section of the founding document gives examples of what they meant by "high crimes and misdemeanors." It does not cite accidentally reading the wrong transcript aloud. Members of Congress cannot be impeached and censure is a toothless resolution that is meaningless.
