Ted Nugent says he will no longer engage in "hateful rhetoric"

The musician, known for his conservative leanings, revealed on the WABC radio program “Curtis and Eboni” that his wife has persuaded him to express himself differently.

“At the tender age of 69, my wife has convinced me that I just can’t use those harsh terms,” he said. “I cannot and I will not, and I encourage even my friends-slash-enemy on the left in the Democrat and liberal world that we have got to be civil to each other.”
