Country singer Hank Williams Jr. is lashing back the best way he knows how over his comments comparing President Obama to Hitler. He’s written a song, ironically, slamming Fox News, ESPN and America.
Williams reaped a whirlwind of criticism, capped when ESPN yanked his opening theme song “Are You Ready for Some Football?” from its Monday Night Football broadcast.
The sports cable network then severed its 20-year relationship with Williams, although the singer claimed he quit first.
Williams along with Fox News talking heads Steve Doocy, Gretchen Carlson and Brian Kilmeade were hilariously lampooned on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” over the weekend.
Now Williams has fired back with a new song “I’ll Keep My …”
Williams was asked on the Fox show to share his views on the political landscape.
He compared President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner playing golf together as tantamount to Nazi leader Adolph Hitler playing with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
He also called Obama “the enemy.”
In the song Williams sings:
So Fox `n Friends wanna put me down,
Ask for my opinion,
Twist it all around.”
Well two can play that gotcha game you’ll see.
Another verse laments that the country is “going down the drain” and calls it “The United Socialist States of America.”
He urged fans to boycott “Fox & Friends” and ESPN.
The sound could hit iTunes late Monday or early Tuesday.
