Most have seen the reporting on Ted Nugent, a major anti-vaxxer saying he thought he was dying from Covid-19. He performed live at a Florida Supermarket well known for it’s stance against masks. Video of Ted performing at the venue on April 12th can be seen on his YouTube page. You will see pretty much no one wearing masks including store employees.

Here’s the kicker. Ted went on Facebook live on April 19th saying he tested positive for Covid-19 after battling flu like symptoms for two weeks.

“I have had flu symptoms for the last 10 days and I thought I was dying,” Nugent said in his live video. “I was tested positive today. I’ve got a stuffed up head, body aches. My God, what a pain in the a--. I literally could hardly crawl out of bed the last few days. But I did. I crawled.”

His live performance in that Supermarket happened while he was feeling sick, so it’s possible he helped spread the virus before he even confirmed he had it. The owner of the Supermarket said he knows masks do not work, and is denying that the virus has killed hundreds of thousands of people in the U.S. Ted backs up the store owners opinion claiming it’s BS that a half million Americans have died from the virus, and wonders why the U.S. didn’t shut down for Covids 1 through 18.
