Hank Williams Jr: Obama and Biden ‘The Enemy’
Country music legend Hank Williams, Jr. is not a fan of the current administration. Appearing on Fox & Friends this morning, he dubbed President Obama and Vice President Biden “the enemy” and excoriated Speaker Boehner for playing golf with them, declaring, “It would be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu.”
GRETCHEN CARLSON: So, I’ll start with an easy question, who do you like in the GOP race?
STEVE DOOCY (co-host): Nobody?
WILLIAMS: You remember the — you remember the golf game they had, ladies and gentlemen?
WILLIAMS: Remember the golf game?
WILLIAMS: That was one of the biggest political mistakes ever.
WILLIAMS: That turned a lot of people off. You know, watching, you know, it just didn’t go over.
CARLSON: You mean when John Boehner played golf with President Obama?
WILLIAMS: Oh, yeah! Yeah. And Biden and Kasich, yeah. Uh-huh.
CARLSON: What did you not like about it? It seems to be a really pivotal moment for you.
WILLIAMS: Come on. Come on. It would be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu, OK?
WILLIAMS: Not hardly. In the country this shape is in, the shape this country’s in, I mean, no, I don’t think so.
BRIAN KILMEADE (co-host): Yeah, I don’t understand that analogy, actually.
DOOCY: Well, it’s — it’s out there.
WILLIAMS: Well, I’m glad you don’t, brother, because a lot of people do. You know, they’re the enemy. They’re the enemy.
KILMEADE: Who’s the enemy?
WILLIAMS: Obama! And Biden! Are you kidding? The Three Stooges.
DOOCY: That’s only two.
CARLSON: I just want to say that we disavow any of those comments or analogies that he’s made, at least I’m going to say that, disavow the analogy between Hitler and the president.
When Steve Doocy is smarter than you and Gretchen Carlson thinks you’ve gone too far in criticizing a Democrat, you might want to think twice about going on national TV and talking politics.
In Hank’s defense, there’s a decent possibility he was drunk.
