On Fox News’ “Fox and Friends,” Williams said that this summer’s golf summit between the President and Speaker of the House, John Boehner was “one of the biggest political mistakes ever,” and claimed, ”It would be like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli leader) Benjamin Netanyahu.”
When asked by the Fox host to explain his statement, he responded that President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are “the enemy.” Even the Fox hosts seemed perplexed.
Williams is not happy with the current GOP field either, although he is considering supporting Herman Cain. Williams is considering a run for the U.S. Senate from Tennessee.
In a statement, ESPN said, ”While Hank Williams Jr. is not an ESPN employee, we recognize he is closely linked to our company through the opening to Monday Night Football. We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result have decided to pull the open from tonight’s telecast.”
