Can you believe Ted Nugent is going to the State of the Union?

Ted Nugent may be the last person you would expect to attend the State of the Union, but he's going to be there front and center when Obama delivers his big speech to the rest of the country. He called into the radio show this morning and discussed how he ended up being invited and why he ultimately decided to attend.

Nugent explained that he was asked to attend by Congressman Steve Stockman as a counter to all of the "props" that he believed President Obama was going to use as mascots for gun regulation.

"That's a simple explanation.  It's much deeper than that.  I believe as we the people, I have the right to be there and I think that I represent the logical productive, conscientious, law‑abiding Americans not just in the gun‑owning community but overall, and somebody's got to stand in opposition to President Obama.  And I understand that I'm going to be right straight out in front of him."

Full Transcript of the interview is below:

GLENN: The one, the only Ted Nugent is on the phone and he's on his way. Are you in Washington yet? Are you going ‑‑ you're going today, Ted? Line 12, please. Somebody seize Line 12 for me. There you are. Ted?

NUGENT: Yeah, you got me?

GLENN: Yeah. Are you in Washington?

NUGENT: No, I ‑‑ Glenn, I decided I'd much rather go fishing. Would you go for me please?

GLENN: Nope. I will not.

NUGENT: No, I'm just about to leave Texas and I'm looking forward to a wonderful rendezvous with my fellow Americans.

GLENN: All right. Now, what are you wearing tonight?

NUGENT: Mrs. Nugent is so frustrated.

GLENN: I bet she is.

NUGENT: I don't own a tie. She doesn't know what the hell I'm going to wear. But I said, honey, it's going to be okay. I have clean camo I haven't dirtied up yet. There's no blood on it.

PAT: Camo?

GLENN: Ted, you can't wear camo. We want you to look like ‑‑ we want you to look respectful and still be you. Maybe a camo tie. Can we make ‑‑ can somebody make him a camo tie and get it to ‑‑ I mean, you ‑‑

NUGENT: I was going to run out and shoot a rattlesnake and wear it around my neck this morning.

GLENN: No, let's don't put that there.

NUGENT: No, you know, I'm sure Mrs. Nugent will pick out a nice clean shirt and nobody can see my jeans and I think I have a couple of jackets. I'll be fine. Don't you worry about my fashion statement.

GLENN: All right. You've got to ‑‑ when, you know, you're going into ‑‑ you're going into the lion's den. Dress like a lion.

NUGENT: And not only that, but it's a very important place ‑‑

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Hang on just a second. I'm talking to Ted Nugent. Don't actually dress like a lion. Because he's like ‑‑

PAT: I can see him wearing one as he walks in. I can see that.

GLENN: "I've got one down on the floor in my living room. I'll just ‑‑ I'll just put my hands and wear his claws like gloves."

NUGENT: Wouldn't that be great if I went out and shot a mountain lion today and slammed it on the railing right there in the room?

GLENN: Unbelievable.

NUGENT: Unbelievable.

GLENN: All right. Okay. So who invited you? Can you say?

NUGENT: Yes. Congressman Steve Stockman from here in Texas, and he articulated why I should be there and I concurred and here I go.

GLENN: And why did he say you should be there?

NUGENT: He says based on this president's performance and his masterful scam artist fraud delivery in the last State of the Union and every time he opens his mouth and how he will stack the audience with his props and maybe children who got hit in the head with a large capacity magazine or ‑‑ and he wanted someone there who has trounced the antigunners every time they dare debate me, and he wanted me to have a presence there to counter the president's props.

GLENN: All right. So I was ‑‑

NUGENT: That's a simple explanation. It's much deeper than that. I believe as we the people, I have the right to be there and I think that I represent the logical productive, conscientious, law‑abiding Americans not just in the gun‑owning community but overall, and somebody's got to stand in opposition to President Obama. And I understand that I'm going to be right straight out in front of him.

GLENN: I have to tell you ‑‑ that's fantastic. Did wear the lion. I think I am ‑‑ I would rather have you, quite honestly, Ted, I'd rather have you as a neighbor or a mayor than ‑‑ in the town that I lived in than almost anybody in Washington because I know you're going to be, "Hey, Glenn, leave Glenn alone. Leave all our neighbors alone. Just let us do what we do. And as long as we're not killing each other or, you know, robbing one another."

NUGENT: Or harming someone else.

GLENN: Right.

NUGENT: I've always said, Glenn, that the pursuit of happiness should be observed and adhered to that if you live upstream of someone, you can't do into the water what you wouldn't want them to do to you downstream. So your pursuit of happiness is limited by logic and goodwill and decency that whatever you choose to do, it doesn't harm others' pursuit of happiness.

GLENN: You know, I think Jesus might have said something similar to that without the ‑‑ without alluding to peeing in water.

NUGENT: Or maybe what someone does in the water.

GLENN: So now are you going to be on ‑‑ because afterwards is anybody going to be interviewing you? Because you know whoever he puts in the audience of little, you know, Sally No‑Face who had her face ripped off by, you know, a high‑capacity magazine, she's going to be on TV. Are ‑‑ is anybody lining anything up for you to be on the other side?

NUGENT: Well, number one, and you know this: Since the 1960s I don't believe a day has gone by in my life from my management or my booking agencies or my different associates where I haven't been requested to do some interviews, to do media. I've stood against the grain in the world of rock‑and‑roll and the world of politics, but I've never seen anything like this before. Since it was announced, I just said yes to Congressman Stockman yesterday about noon. I was picking my dog up from the vet. And already we were contacted by every imaginable media. I've already done dozens of interviews. The requests and demands on me prior to the State of the Union and following the State of the Union, there's no way I can do more than 1 or 2% of the requests that have come in. But I will take a deep breath and I will try to represent "we the people" accurately, honestly and in upbeat.

GLENN: And in a suit and tie or at least a jacket and tie.

NUGENT: I still don't understand the tie thing. Is that for people that drool? What is the tie?

GLENN: I don't know ‑‑ I can't explain the tie. Just wear a tie. You're at the ‑‑ you're at the State of the Union. Wear a tie.

NUGENT: I'll find something.

GLENN: All right. Thanks a lot, Ted.

NUGENT: All right. Well, God speed, Glenn.

GLENN: God bless. Bye‑bye.

'The Handmaid's Tale' got it right, just with the wrong religion

Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images

Just in case The Handmaid's Tale's heavy-handed message wasn't already heavy-handed enough, a recent episode made it clear there's always room for further hysteria. Particularly, in relation to depictions of a “patriarchal society" run by Christian doctrine and determined by men — oh those dastardly men.

RELATED: Christian privilege is the new white privilege

The show appropriates Margaret Atwood of the same name, depicting a totalitarian society led by Christian doctrine in which women's bodies are controlled, and they have no rights. The story sounds familiar, but not in the same way Atwood and the show's creators have so smugly assumed.

Just as tone-deaf as 4th wave feminism itself, and tone-deaf in all the exact same places. Most notably, the show's heavy-handed indignation toward Christianity. Toward the patriarchy. Toward conservatives and traditional values. And just like 4th wave feminism, the show completely overlooks the irony at play. Because there is a part of the world where women and children are being raped and mutilated. In fact, in this very real place, the women or girls are often imprisoned, even executed, for being raped, and they are mutilated in unspeakable ways.

Theirs is a cruel, bloody, colorless life.

There is a place, a very real place, where women are forced to cover their entire bodies with giant tarp-like blankets, which is all the more brutal given the endless heat of this place. There is a place where women literally have one-third of the rights of men, a place where women are legally, socially and culturally worth less than men.

They cannot drive cars. They cannot be outside alone. They cannot divorce, they cannot even choose who they marry and often, they are forcibly married at a young age.

They are raped. A lot. Theirs is a cruel, bloody, colorless life. This is the life of tens, perhaps hundreds of millions of women. And, I'll tell you, their religion isn't Christianity.

Science did it again. It only took 270 million years, but this week, scientists finally solved the mystery that has kept the world up at night. We finally know where octopuses come from: outer space. That explains why they look like the aliens in just about every alien movie ever made.

RELATED: Changes in technology can be cause for concern, but THIS is amazing

It turns out octopuses were aliens that evolved on another planet. Scientists haven't determined which one yet, but they've definitely narrowed it down to one of the planets in one of the galaxies. Hundreds of millions of years ago (give or take a hundred), these evolved octopus aliens arrived on Earth in the form of cryopreserved eggs. Now, this part is just speculation, but it's possible their alien planet was on the verge of destruction, so Mom and Dad Octopus self-sacrificially placed Junior in one of these cryopreserved eggs and blasted him off the planet to save their kind.

This alien-octopus research, co-authored by a group of 33 scientists, was published in the Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology journal. I'm sure you keep that on your nightstand like I do.

Anyway, these scientists say octopuses evolved very rapidly over 270 million years. Which sounds slow, but in evolutionary terms, 270 million years is like light speed. And the only explanation for their breakneck evolution is that they're aliens. The report says, “The genome of the Octopus shows a staggering level of complexity with 33,000 protein-coding genes — more than is present in Homo sapiens."

Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

They mention that the octopus' large brain, sophisticated nervous system, camera-like eyes, flexible bodies and ability to change color and shape all point to its alien nature. Octopuses developed those capabilities rather suddenly in evolution, whereas we're still trying to figure out the TV remote.

These biological enhancements are so far ahead of regular evolution that the octopuses must have either time-traveled from the future, or “more realistically" according to scientists, crash-landed on earth in those cryopreserved egg thingies. The report says the eggs arrived here in “icy bolides." I had to look up what a “bolide" is, and turns out it's a fancy word for a meteor.

So, to recap: a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, an alien race of octopuses packed their sperm-bank samples in some meteors and shot them toward Earth. Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

President Trump's approval rating is rising, and Democrats — hilariously — can't seem to figure out what's going on. A few months ago Democrats enjoyed a sixteen point lead over Republicans, but now — according to CNN's recent national survey — that lead is down to just THREE points. National data from Reuters shows it as being even worse.

The Democratic advantage moving towards the halfway mark into 2018 shows that Republicans are only ONE point behind. The president's public approval rating is rising, and Democrats are nervously looking at each other like… “umm guys, what are we doing wrong here?"

I'm going to give Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi a little hint. We know that the Left has enjoyed a “special relationship" with the media, but they might want to have a sit down with their propaganda machine. The mainstream media is completely out of control, and Americans are sick of it. We're DONE with the media.

RELATED: The mainstream media wants you to believe Trump is waging war on immigrants — here's the truth

Look what has been going on just this week. The president called MS-13 gang members animals, but that's not the story the media jumped on. They thought it was more clickable to say that Trump was calling all immigrants animals instead. In the Middle East, the media rushed to vilify Israel instead of Hamas. They chose to defend a terror organization rather than one of our oldest allies.

Think about that. The media is so anti-Trump that they've chosen a violent street gang AND A GLOBAL TERROR ORGANIZATION as their torch-bearing heroes. Come on, Democrats. Are you seriously baffled why the American people are turning their backs on you?

Still not enough evidence? Here's the New York Times just yesterday. Charles Blow wrote a piece called "A Blue Wave of Moral Restoration" where he tried to make the case that the president and Republicans were the enemy, but — fear not — Democrat morality was here to save the day.

Here are some of these cases Blow tries to make for why Trump is unfit to be President:

No person who treats women the way Trump does and brags on tape about sexually assaulting them should be president.

Ok, fine. You can make that argument if you want to, but why weren't you making this same argument for Bill Clinton? Never mind, I actually know the reason. Because you were too busy trying to bury the Juanita Broaddrick story.

Let's move on:

No person who has demonstrated himself to be a pathological liar should be president.

Do the words, “You can keep your doctor" mean anything to the New York Times or Charles Blow? I might have saved the best for last:

No person enveloped by a cloud of corruption should be president.

I can only think of three words for a response to this: Hillary Frigging Clinton.

Try displaying a little consistency.

If the media really wants Donald Trump gone and the Democrats to take over, they might want to try displaying a little consistency. But hey, maybe that's just too much to ask.

How about starting with not glorifying terrorist organizations and murderous street gangs. Could we at least begin there?

If not… good luck in the midterms.

In the weeks following President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the mainstream media was quick to criticize the president's pro-Israel stance and make dire predictions of violent backlash in the Middle East. Fast forward to this week's opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem and the simultaneous Palestinian “protests" in Gaza.

Predictably, the mainstream media chastised Israel for what they called “state-sanctioned terrorism" when the IDF stepped in to protect their country from so-called peaceful Palestinian protesters. Hamas leaders later admitted that at least 50 of the 62 Palestinians killed in the clashes were Hamas terrorists.

“In our post-modern media age, there is no truth and nobody even seems to be looking for it …. This is shamefully clear in the media especially this week with their coverage of the conflict between the border of Israel and the Gaza strip," said Glenn on today's show. He added, “The main media narrative this week is about how the IDF is just killing innocent protesters, while Hamas officials have confirmed on TV that 50 of the 62 people killed were working for Hamas."

The mainstream media views the Palestinians as the oppressed people who just want to share the land and peacefully coexist with the people of Israel. “They can't seem to comprehend that in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only one side is actively trying to destroy the other," surmised Glenn.

Watch the video above to hear Glenn debunk the “peaceful Palestinian protest" fallacy.
