Hank Williams Jr. has issued an apology, brief but apparently sincere, for the absurd comments on Fox News this week that got him kicked off Monday Night Football.
The singer called his Obama-Hitler comparison "misunderstood" in a statement earlier Tuesday, going on to explain more tactfully what he meant but not retracting it.
Now, in a second statement, he admitted it was "dumb" and apologized.
According to Hank Williams, Jr.: "The thought of the leaders of both parties jukin [sic] and high fiven [sic] on the golf course, while so many families are struggling to get by simply made me boil over and make a dumb statement."
That it did.
He adds, in conclusion, that "I am very sorry if it offended anyone. I would like to thank all my supporters. This was not written by some publicist.”
Hopefully this ends Hank's run as a Fox political analyst. As far as we know, no one has asked for his opinions on Chris Christie not running.
