Country Superstar Likens Obama To Hitler

Country Superstar Likens Obama To Hitler

On a Fox and Friends interview Monday morning, country music icon Hank Williams Jr. said that he has little faith in the GOP’s 2012 Presidential hopefuls and very little in the party itself. He went on to liken President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler.

The tone was set in the interview with Williams that began with Fox commentators asking the musician whom he liked in the primary when he answered simply, “Nobody.”

Williams went on to explain why he has lost faith in the party.

“You remember the golf game? That was one of the biggest political mistakes, ever. That turned a lot of people off,” he said referring to the President’s famous bipartisan publicity golf game with Speaker of the House Jon Boehner (R-Ohio).

The Fox pundits became confused and seemingly alarmed as Williams continued. When asked what he did not like about the game, the musician let them have it.

“Come on, that’d be like Hitler playin’ golf with Netanyahu,” he said. “In the shape this country’s in.”

When the commentators pressed Williams and said that they did not understand the analogy he continued, “Well, I’m glad you don’t, brother, ’cause a lot of people do. You know, they’re the enemy, the enemy.”

“Who’s the enemy?” the pundits asked.

“Obama and Biden, are you kidding, the three stooges,” Williams exclaimed.

Williams said that he believes that the country is more politically polarized than it has ever been and he does not think now is a time for bipartisanship. He also said that if he had to pick a GOP candidate right now, that Herman Cain makes the most sense recently.

At the conclusion of the interview, the commentators said that they “disavow” Williams’ comments.

Because of Williams’ comments, ESPN pulled the intro segment to “Monday Night Football” that features Williams’ song “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Monday Night” and released the following statement: “While Hank Williams, Jr. is not an ESPN employee, we recognize that he is closely linked to our company through the open to Monday Night Football. We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result we have decided to pull the open from tonight’s telecast.”
