Liberals having a meltdown over the White House visit of Kid Rock, Sarah Palin, and Ted Nugent were sure to be triggered by Nugent’s remark about a photo taken with Hillary Clinton’s portrait.
The trio were guests of President Trump at the White House Wednesday and, after a personal tour by the president himself, had some fun posing for a photo in front of Clinton’s official White House portrait before leaving.
Irrespective of your views, being a WH guest only to mock Hillary is immature. Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent and Kid Rock should be ashamed. pic.twitter.com/Ix4mqVgbTp

According to Nugent, one member of the group on the tour suggested they flip the bird at the former first lady’s portrait. He did not reveal who that was.
“I politely declined. Let the juxtaposition speak for itself,” the rocker told The New York Times in an interview published Thursday.
“We were there for four hours, man!” Nugent said. “He gave us a wonderful personal tour of every room and talked about the origins of every carpet and every painting — there was a Monet — and then we had dinner,”
The 68 year-old rocker was invited, along with Kid Rock, by Palin who was initially extended the invitation to visit with Trump. White House press secretary Sean Spicer said the meeting was “a long-planned” thank you to the former Alaska governor for her support of the president during the campaign, according to the Times.

Nugent described the trip, which included the tour, a private dinner, and chatting with the president on a variety of topics, as much more than a visit.
“It was like a family reunion,” he said. “None of us expected this.”
Not surprisingly, the visit caused outrage with snowflakes on social media and the photo added insult to injury for leftists who worship at the Clinton throne.
@Mediaite As if ’The Beverly Hillbillies Go to Washington’ could get any classier (apologies in advance to The Beverly Hillbillies).

@peddoc63 These 3 are just as tacky & classless as Trump. This is the people’s house. This = disrespect of majority of Americans

Twitter users on the right were, naturally, all for the visit and the photo mockery, reminding critics of of some other White House visitors from the not-too-distant past.
