Singer Ted Nugent apologized Friday for calling President Barack Obama a "subhuman mongrel" in a radio interview.

"I do apologize — not necessarily to the President — but on behalf of much better men than myself, like the best governor in America, Gov. Rick Perry, the best attorney general in America . . . Greg Abbott" of Texas, he told conservative talk show host Ben Ferguson, CNN reported.

"I apologize for using the street fighter terminology, like 'subhuman mongrel,' instead of just using more understandable language such as 'violator of his oath to the Constitution,'"  Nugent said. "I apologize for using the term. I will try to elevate my vernacular to the level of those great men that I'm learning from in the world of politics."

Rocker and conservative activist Nugent made the "subhuman mongrel" comment in an interview with Guns.com in January.

"I have obviously failed to galvanize and prod, if not shame, enough Americans to be ever vigilant not to let a Chicago communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel like the ACORN community organizer gangster Barack Hussein Obama to weasel his way into the top office of authority in the United States of America," Nugent said in the interview that sparked a firestorm of criticism against him.

CNN's Wolf Blitzer noted that the term "subhuman mongrel" was used by the Nazis in Germany to describe Jews they wanted to exterminate. The CNN host called on Abbott to distance himself from Nugent because of the comments.

Perry stated in an interview Thursday that Nugent should apologize for the comments. Abbott, who had enlisted Nugent's help in his campaign for governor of Texas, announced Wednesday that he would be no longer use Nugent at public events.

The apology was announced on the Facebook page for Ferguson's show.
