Country music singer and U.S Army veteran Craig Morgan didn’t think too much of ignorant comments made recently that insulted a wide range of Americans.

Morgan was a guest recently on FOX & Friends to respond to the comments made by Ebony.com senior editor Jamilah Lemieux. Responding to Texas Sen. and presidential candidate Ted Cruz’s statement on “CBS This Morning” that he switched from rock music to country music after the 9/11 terror attacks, Lemieux said on an MSNBC show that “nothing says ‘let’s go kill some Muslims,’ like country music.”

Morgan was a guest on FOX & Friends to respond. Morgan served nearly two decades of service to our U.S. military, including more than 10 years of active duty with the Army’s 101st and 82nd Airborne Divisions, followed by another nine years in the Reserves well into his music career. He’s had more than a dozen Top 10 hits and is a passionate supporter of outdoors pursuits and hunting.

“It’s a little insulting but it’s also laughable,” Morgan said on “FOX & Friends.” “I don’t know why Ms. Limieux felt the need to be, really it was just rude. I felt like it was a very rude statement.”

After Limieux’s idiotic comment, Michael Steele and Joan Walsh, the other guests with her on the snow, giggled about it. Whooboy! She made a funny about country bumpkins! Whooeeee!

“In my opinion, even worse was Ms. Walsh’s reaction, you know, her laughing and then I thought that her insulting the ‘bless their hearts, the country people’ comment,” Morgan said. “There’s a lot of ignorance on their part I believe more than anything.”
