Tweet of the Day: Ted Nugent quips ‘If Obama’s a Christian, then I’m …’

I read somewhere yesterday that the audience member at the Trump rally in New Hampshire Thursday who claimed Barack Obama is a Muslim was a plant, designed to make Trump look bad with his fan base.

And he continued to make the same protestation even after the terrorist organization tweeted “a message signed with blood” to “the nation of the cross” several days after Obama’s impassioned defense.
