National Rifle Association board member Ted Nugent, who will deliver a speech at the NRA’s annual meeting this month, shared a fake video that depicts Hillary Clinton being graphically murdered by Bernie Sanders with a handgun during a presidential debate.
In a May 10 post on his Facebook page, Nugent shared a video with the descriptions “Bernie Sanders destroys Hillary Clinton in debate on Vermont gun laws” and “Bernie Sanders absolutely killed Hillary over this issue.”
Nugent added his own comment: “I got your guncontrol right here bitch!”
The video features edited footage of a CNN debate between Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). As Clinton is answering a question about the gun issue, Sanders is depicted as pulling out a handgun and shooting her in the chest. Blood spurts from Clinton’s chest as she falls to the ground:
On Facebook, Nugent proceeded to like a comment by a supporter who fantasized about Clinton’s death.
Nugent is slated to speak at the NRA’s annual meeting, which will be held May 19 – 22 in Louisville, KY. According to the NRA, Nugent will deliver a speech called “2016 Election Do or Die for America and Freedom.” The description of the event claims, “The Obama/Clinton liberal Democrat gang is maniacal in their attack on all things individual rights, truth, logic, commonsense and The American Way. Are there enough of us willing to do battle with these evil forces?”
Nugent is also up for re-election on the NRA’s board of directors. The results of the election will be announced at the May meeting.
