National Rifle Association board member and ex-rocker Ted Nugent grabbed his crotch during a rally for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in Sterling Heights, Michigan, on Nov. 6 (video below).
Nugent, who is from Michigan, made the obscene gesture in response to the state's history of voting for Democrats, notes The Guardian.
"We must not let it [Michigan] get lumped in with California and Illinois and New York and New Jersey and Maryland and Massachusetts. I got your blue state right here, baby! Black and blue!" he yelled.
When Trump took the stage, he said "Unbelievable what’s going on, thank you."

Media Matters notes that Nugget has called for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to be hanged for treason, posted a fake video of Clinton being shot and referred to her as a "devilbitch' during a Facebook Live broadcast on Oct. 31:
[G]et everybody in your lives to vote for Donald Trump in eight days, or the devilbitch will continue the fundamental transformation of the Barack 'I Hate America' Obama suicide death march for America. And if you have a problem with that terminology, move to Cuba, because Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama’s policies are already in play in Cuba.
In February, Nugent posted an anti-Semitic image to Facebook that attacked 12 prominent Jewish people, whom he referred to as "punks" and "evil."
In July 2013, Nugent slammed Trayvon Martin, who was unarmed when he was killed by George Zimmerman, as a "dope smoking, racist gangsta wannabe" who took the "violent route."

Media Matters notes that Nugent "shared a racist meme advertising the fake moving company '2 n******* and a stolen truck,' and smeared Minnesota police shooting victim Philando Castile as a criminal. In 2015, Nugent devoted an entire column to praising the use of the word 'n*******,' even in a racist context."
