"Country Star Hank Williams Jr: Obama Is A ‘Muslim’ Who ‘Hates The U.S.’"

Country star Hank Williams Jr. called President Obama a Muslim who “hates” America during a concert at the Iowa State Fair Grandstand on Friday, eliciting enthusiastic cheers and applause from the audience. The comments came after Williams played “We Don’t Apologize For America”: “We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the US and we hate him,” he said. In 2011, Williams sparked controversy for comparing Obama to Hitler and describing him as “the enemy.”
