I swore I wasn't going to do one more post on Donald Trump and his stupid comments about Megyn Kelly. But this isn't really a post about Trump. It's a post about Ted Nugent and his nasty sexist jokes.

This is what he dropped on Fox viewers today:

During an Aug. 12 appearance on WIBX's Keeler in the Morning, Nugent defended Trump, whom he says is his favorite presidential candidate, by making crude comments about Kelly and suggesting she may be becoming "stupid."

Nugent said, "I'm a big fan of Donald Trump because I believe in bold, aggressive, unapologetic truth. Period. And I'm not a fan of Megyn Kelly, although I often turn on Fox just to look at her. Sometimes when I'm loading my [gun ammunition] magazines, I like to just look at her. And I usually sit naked on the couch dropping hot brass on my stuff."

Say what you will about Megyn Kelly. I've said plenty. But this is just outright sexist claptrap, intended to titillate listeners with crass, crude imagery.

In response, I will just say that if one drops hot brass on their stuff too often while fantasizing about a TV anchor, they might burn it right off. Or shoot it off. What a shame that would be.

He wasn't finished with her, though.

Nugent continued: "Megyn Kelly absolutely broke all of our hearts as only a Megyn Kelly could when she went into the status quo world. She isn't status quo, but she started acting, and sounding, and looking like one, and I don't believe she is. I think she is playing some games, either that or she's getting bad advice, either that or she's just getting stupid. Either way, Donald Trump is the good guy, currently Megyn Kelly ain't."

It's okay, Teddy. There's still naked Sarah Palin to fantasize about.
