Hank Williams Jr. got into some hot water on Monday after he went on Fox & Friends and compared the golf game between House Speaker John Boehner and President Obama to “Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu.” The old “Obama as Hitler” stuff again. It’ll get you every time.
The thought of the leaders of both parties jukin’ [sic] and high fiven’ [sic] on a golf course, while so many families are struggling to get by, simply made me boil over and make a dumb statement, and I am very sorry if it offended anyone. I would like to thank all my supporters. This was not written by some publicist.
We believe 100 percent that a publicist had nothing to do with this Bocephus. CNN also got a statement from ESPN’s senior director of comms Bill Hofheimer who says the company has made no decision about future use of the song.
*Update: Now we have dueling statements! Bocephus is hitting the all caps button to tell ESPN that he’s taking his song and his friends and his first amendment rights and leaving. And ESPN is saying “Later.” We’re going to bet that this turns into an ABC contest for the new Monday Night Football anthem.
