Rock musician Ted Nugent discussed his profanity-laden CBS News interview on Friday, telling radio host Mike Broomhead in his characteristically provocative style that the left media wants to paint him as a "nasty man who wants to rape your puppy."

While sitting down with radio host Mike Broomhead, Nugent said that the left media and liberal figures like Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz try to paint him as an extremist.

"The left media and Wasserman Schultz will try to tell you that I threaten the president’s life and that I’m a mean, nasty man who wants to rape your puppy," Nugent told Broomhead.

Nugent also added a dig at President Obama's recollection of eating dog meat as a child in Indonesia.

"I wouldn't rape your puppy, but I'm sure if the president needs a little chow, I could do a little bushmeat for him," he said.

Nugent made headlines last month when he said at a National Rifle Association convention in St. Louis that he would be "dead or in jail by this time next year" if Obama is re-elected. His comments drew the attention of the Secret Service, who proceeded to meet with Nugent.

During the CBS interview, which largely focused on his Secret Service meeting as well as the entertainer's contact with Mitt Romney's campaign, Nugent went off on a profane tirade when reporter Jeff Glor suggested that he was not a moderate. From CBS:

"I think in an honest and sincere analysis of what Ted Nugent is, I think once you take away the battle fatigues of my rock and roll insanity -- I like to use this analogy: I'm a welder. When I work, sparks are flying and there's soot, but you know what? When I'm done welding, I take off the regalia. I shower, and I'm a pretty nice guy to hang around with. You know what I am after the welding? I'm a moderate. I'm an extremely loving and passionate man, and people who investigate me honestly, without the baggage of political correctness, ascertain the conclusion that I'm a damned nice guy. ... And if you can find a screening process more powerful than that, I'll [expletive] your [expletive], or [expletive] you. How's that sound?"

Nugent later apologized for his outburst.
