Ted Nugent On Bruce Jenner, ‘He Was A Great Man’
During a recent appearance on The Nightly Nuge, Ted Nugent recalled when he competed against Caitlyn Jenner in a Long Beach Grand Prix and expressed his admiration for her successful sports career.
As you probably know, The Nightly Nuge presents some hot topics in the news from Ted Nugent’s point of view. Nugent and his co-host, Keith Mark, discuss the mainstream media’s version of some important stories of the day every night. It is publicly known that Ted Nugent enjoys commenting on the recent issues from his own point of view, and this platform has given him a chance to make his voice heard even more.
During his recent appearance, Nugent shared his thoughts on the spirit of competition and said that all humans instinctively have it. Later on, when it comes to competition, he shared a distinct memory he had with Caitlyn Jenner. Ted Nugent revealed that he has previously taken part in some celebrity races, and he has even competed against Olympic gold-medal winning Caitlyn Jenner.
Nugent praised Jenner’s dedication to the arena and her determination to do the best she could. However, according to the story, Ted Nugent defeated her in the arena as he is an experienced driver. The rocker explained that he understands the spirit of competition in the athletes and why they push their limits to be the best. He still criticized them for not having enough political awareness.
Ted Nugent recalls competing against Caitlyn Jenner:
“I got a little story to share with everybody. I raced in some celebrity races and some Long Beach Grand Prix with the great gold medalist man, Bruce Jenner, and he was a great man. He remains this day a great something, but he was a decent, smart, dedicated man in the arena. He always put his heart into being the best he could be.
Unfortunately, I ran into the Motor City Madman who was trained in off-road racing in Detroit rush hour in a rent-a-car. You can’t beat me, nobody else has those credentials, so I understand the spirit of athleticism and that man in the arena competition that being the best you could be. That’s instinctual in all human beings created in the image and likeness of God.
But as goes Bruce Jenner into Caitlyn Jenner goes a segment of our society that has become so blind they couldn’t tell you what the Trail of Tears was, they couldn’t tell you what the Battan Death March was, they couldn’t tell you what Auschwitz was, they couldn’t tell you what the Rape of Nanking was, where mankind viciously raped and murdered and tortured fellow men.”
