Are You Ready for Some Hitler? ESPN Drops Hank Williams Open From Monday Night Football After Comments
Hank, Hank, Hank. You crazy country singer, you! Don’t you know the only reason you’re making a living today is that one phrase “Are You Ready for Some Football?” Apparently not. From AJC.com:
In an interview Monday morning on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” Williams, unprompted, said of Obama’s outing on the links with House Speaker John Boehner: “It’d be like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu.”
Asked to clarify, Williams said, “They’re the enemy,” adding that by “they” he meant Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.
Anchor Gretchen Carlson later said to him, “You used the name of one of the most hated people in all of the world to describe, I think, the president.” Williams replied, “Well, that is true. But I’m telling you like it is.”
