Hank Williams might be ready for some foot-in-mouth.
Williams, the country singer famous for his Monday Night Football theme song, compared President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler in an appearance on Fox and Friends Monday morning, according to The Huffington Post.
In opening his time on air, he told the show's hosts that he was not particularly fond of any Republican candidate for President. Then he got into the subject of Speaker John Boehner's golf outing with Barack Obama, saying it was not a smart move for Boehner. And that's when controversy ensued.
That was one of the biggest political mistakes ever, said Williams, who plans to run as a Republican for the U.S. Senate in Tennessee next year. That turned a lot of people off.
That would be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu, he added, referring to the current prime minister of Israel.
Fox and Friends host Brian Kilmeade said he did not understand Williams' analogy, probably because the former golf game never could have actually happened. Oh, yes, and because it is probably somewhat nonsensical.
Don't worry, Brian.
I'm glad you don't brother, because a lot of people do, Williams said, never actually naming who, in fact, understood the analogy. They're the enemy. ... Obama! And Biden! Are you kidding? The Three Stooges.
Are you kidding? You only named two people.
No big deal. Let's just move on to the race, now.
The one that makes the most sense is Herman Cain, Williams said.
Herman Cain, undoubtedly, has to be pleased with the endorsement.
Williams, however, has been no stranger to political controversy over the past few years. Leading up to the 2008 election, he suggested during a rally for John McCain that Obama was not real crazy about the national anthem.
The appearance lasted for three more awkward minutes. And it probably left Kilmeade reconsidering his opening statement that Williams knows a little bit about politics.
