After catching coronavirus earlier this month, Ted Nugent is now claiming he never said COVID-19 was a hoax — despite calling it "not a real pandemic" only a few months ago.

The far-right rocker took to another rambling Facebook livestream yesterday (April 20) in attempts to change the narrative surrounding his previous statements about the pandemic. Back on April 7, Nugent went live to ask: "Why weren't we shut down for COVID-1 through -18?" At the time, he said that the coronavirus death toll was "bullshit," suggesting doctors were falsifying death certificates to inflate numbers.

In addition to claiming "high-tech cluster-fuckers" were responsible for bad audio on an earlier stream, Nugent also went on to complain about China and Black Lives Matter "burning down America" in his latest post — all while creepily praising his wife's "hot toddies."

Here's what Nugent had to in his latest rant [via Blabbermouth]:

Saying that I claimed COVID-19 was a hoax. False. I've always said… We have actually footage of me saying, if not hundreds, thousands of times… Of course there's a Chinese virus. Hello? Who thinks that I claimed there's no Chinese… There's a Chinese virus. They call it COVID-19. I'm well aware of that.

You know, comfortably numb is actually uncomfortably dumb, because when I said, 'What about COVID-1 through 18?', they missed the whole point. I know there was not a COVID-1 through 18, but there were past COVIDs prior to COVID-19 that nobody ever shut down any mom-and-pop businesses, never encouraged the economic destruction of the entrepreneur engine that drives America. So I was merely commenting that prior to COVID-19, nobody ever shut down anything — not for Ebola [virus], not for the Spanish Flu, not for AIDS, not for the Black Plague. But they're doing it for COVID-19. So I was referencing those past epidemics-slash-pandemics as maybe a generalization of COVID-1 through -18.

You stupid motherfuckers. The left is such a great source of comedy. Keep it up. Richard Pryor isn't around anymore. We can't rely on him for the ultimate comedy, so we rely on the comfortably numb nuts, uncomfortably dumb nuts.
