Ted Nugent is blaming the “enemy” for veteran suicides: President Barack Obama.
“Here’s your job, Republican Party,” Nugent said over the weekend in comments posted online by Right Wing Watch. “Twenty to 25 of those guys kill themselves every day, and they haven’t told you why and they haven’t told anybody else why but they told me why: because the commander-in-chief is the enemy.”
Nugent was speaking at the Republican Party of Maricopa County, Arizona’s Lincoln Day Dinner, where he had been introduced by controversial sheriff Joe Arpaio, the website reported.
His remarks come as a new report finds that increasing rates of veteran suicides are not being caused by deployment to Iraq and Afghanistan.
Nugent made similar comments nearly two years ago to conservative radio host Alex Jones.
