Hank Williams Jr. Likens President Obama to Hitler, Renders Even Fox News Panel Speechless

by at . Comments

Are you ready for some insanity?

When Hank Williams Jr. stopped by Fox & Friends this morning to discuss politics (absurd in itself), few could have imagined the views that the country music singer and longtime voice of Monday Night Football espouses.

Williams described this year’s “Golf Summit” between President Barack Obama and Speaker of the House John Boehner as “One of the biggest political mistakes ever.” Sadly, that was Hank's high water mark for intelligence:

When the co-hosts asked Williams to explain, he offered this scintillating insight: “Come on! Come on! It would be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu!”

To the Fox News panel's credit, they were clearly dumbstruck, turned off and unsure of how to respond to such an outrageous comment in a live interview.

Still, you have to question the wisdom of having this guy on your show in the first place. You can't find an intelligent conservative voice to talk politics?

Your take: Is Obama a socialist?

UPDATE: ESPN has yanked Williams, saying in a statement: "We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and we have decided to pull the open from tonight’s telecast."

UPDATE #2: ESPN has fired Hank for good. He dubiously claims he quit, citing a violation of the First Amendment, which is just a ridiculous statement. Either way, he's out.

i think that espn is stupid for letting him go... i think that hank had every right to say what he wants.... i personally dont look down on hank but i do look down on espn now... i think that this world is in the dumps i think that there wasnt enough resarch done when the president was chosen to be in office and i think that this world has come down to everyone lieing so what is different if the president is doing it... i feel bad for the military familys and i feel bad for this world.. but i dont think that a country singer like hank should be let go for stating his opionion... so what he is famous... who cares he has a heart and he breaths the same air... he is no better than anyone else he is human if anyone else would have said this they wouldnt think nothing about it... you all are overreacting and it is crazy all i got to say is GO HANK!!!!!!

@ Danny: You call him a "redneck" and a "loser," but look at your post. You have no capitalization and your sentences run together, which tells me you are a loser pencil-neck, who's stupid to boot. Go fuck yourself and your ugly mother.

Way to get what he said wrong, Big Media douchebag. To take your stupid logic to its conclusion, you should be outraged that he compared Boehner to Netanyahu, since you hate Israel. Oh wait, you hate Boehner too, so nver mind. He didn't say BO was Hitler or Hitler-like, although both ARE socialist tyrants. He was simply saying that it would be as silly for Hitler and Netanyahu to play golf together as it was for those stupid Republicans to play golf with THEIR polar opposite. I always suspected you Big Media types were dumb, now I know.

@pennie ur a dumb c, his dad dying when he was 5 has nothing to do with not liking obama and the fact that u would go that far for obama is pathetic. F obama why does he deserve respect to the point that we cant voice our opinions? He is not above the constitution. @zlister i love ur last comment, i couldnt have said it better myself.

@ sue, whatever, if America is soo racist then why the heck did Osama typo..*b win the freakin election? Americans are more accepting nowadays even though racism still exists. This really pisses me off, why is the "president" being put above God? Seriously everyday God's name is used in vain, he's insulted, oh but no one says anything about that. I'm not bringing religion into this cuz idk what God you believe in but that's not the point. The point is, is he's being praised and defended and so on... He's idolized, it's pathetic. And btw whatever happened to the "I'll bring back home the troops a few months into my term in office"?? I feel bad for the wives, mothers, sons and daughters of these people. Oh but O doesn't care he's out vacationing and having fun. I bet he forget that there even is a war!! I'm sorry but I'm not putting this guy above God.

Heck, if anyone at all should be offended, it should be any surviving (and admitting to that fact) family of Adolf Hitler...and I s'pose Nazi's that are still kicking might could be offended too.
