The Motor City Madman himself, Ted Nugent, has revealed that he has been diagnosed with covid-19 via a Facebook Live stream earlier yesterday.
“I’ve got an announcement to make,” Nugent said. “Everybody told me that I should not announce this.
“I have had flu symptoms for the last ten days. I thought I was dying. Just a clusterfuck.
“I was tested positive today. I got the Chinese shit. I’ve got a stuffed up head, body aches. My God, what a pain in the ass. I literally could hardly crawl out of bed the last few days… So I was officially tested positive for COVID-19 today.”
Ted also said that he is “homebound, i.e. quarantined” while he is recovering from the virus.
Nugent got more in-depth with his diagnosis during an episode of his Internet show “Spirit Campfire”, saying: “I’ve been around a long time — 72.4 years, to be exact — and it’s been quite an adventure… But I have never been so sick in all my life… I could barely crawl out of bed. And I’m not looking for sympathy; I’m just trying to share a medical emergency during a global medical emergency, and what the Nugent tribe, what this guitar player is doing to counterpunch a COVID-19 positive test this afternoon. And it’s gonna be willpower.”
Earlier in the month during another edition of the show, Ted once again repeated his belief that the official death count from the coronavirus is inflated, saying: “They claim five hundred thousand people have died from COVID-19,” he said in a previous Facebook Live stream. “Bullshit. I believe that medical examiners in all 50 states have gone, ‘I put down on the death certificate that he died of asphyxiation, but they made me put COVID.’ ‘Well, this guy was stabbed to death, but they made me put down COVID.’ ‘This guy was run over by a tandem gravel truck doing a four-wheel drift and the crows be pecking at your flesh, but they made me put down COVID-19.'”
Oh come on. It was bound to happen. Check out the video below.
