Hank, Jr., pulled off Monday Night Football -

He compared Obama to Hitler, Boehner to Netanyahu, called foursome 'stupid'

The foursome of President Barack Hussein Obama and House Speaker John Boehner v. Vice President Joe Biden and Ohio Governor John Kasich is “one of the biggest political mistakes ever,” according to Hank Williams, Jr.

In an appearance on Fox News, the son of legendary singer-songwriter Hank Williams said, “Come on. That's be like Hitler playing golf with Natanyahu. Not hardly.”

As a result, ESPN issued a statement explaining their decision to pull the plug on Bocephus.

While Mr. Williams “is not an ESPN employee, we recognize that he is closely linked to our company through the open to 'Monday Night Football.' We are extremely disappointed with his comments and as a result we have decided to pull the open from tonight's telecast.”

The country star acknowledged his remark was “extreme – but it was to make a point...Some of us have strong opinions and are often misunderstood...I was simply trying to explain how stupid it seemed to me – how ludicrous that pairing was. They're polar opposites, and it made no sense. They don't see eye to eye and never will.”
