Ted Nugent took to Facebook and in his typically rational fashion, called for President Barack Obama and Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton to be "tried for treason & hug" for their role in allowing the "allapukes" to be victorious in Benghazi, Media Matters' Timothy Johnson reports.

In a Facebook post, Nugent responded to his viewing of Michael Bay's Benghazi box office flop "13 Hours" by writing that "[o]ur unholy rotten soulless criminal America destroying government killed 4 Americans in Banghazi. Period! What sort of chimpass punk would deny security, turn down 61 requests for security, then tell US forces to STAND DOWN when they were ready to kickass on the allapukes & save American lives! Obama & Clinton, thats who."

What should happen to them? According to Nugent, "[t]hey should be tried for treason & hung. Our entire fkdup gvt must be cleansed asap."

Someone should inform Nugent that talking about "cleans[ing]" groups of people is typically frowned upon in polite circles, even if those people are secretly "allapukes" like he believes President Obama to be. Nugent continued, repeating conservative talking points about the events in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 without mentioning more recent CIA revelations about the "stand-down order."

Of course, everything after the first paragraph of his post clearly consists of unattributed quotations from another source, as the diction shifts from unmistakable Nugent-speak to prose written by someone who most likely writes for a living.

NOTE: Nugent updated the post to indicate that the rest of the prose is from an unlinked New York Times article by Keith Timmerman.
