Hank Williams Jr. might have lost his Monday Night Football gig over, and even apologized for, comparing President Obama to Adolf Hitler, but apparently he's still no fan of the current occupant of the White House. Seems the country music scion played Iowa on Friday night, and as Steve Pope writes for Metromix/Des Moines Register, the political hits kept coming: Williams opened with "Keep the Change," his ditty that rips Obama, ESPN, and “Fox & Friends." Then later in the show, as chants of "USA!" broke out, Williams played it up yet more, grinning and telling the crowd, “We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the US, and we hate him!” (More Hank Williams Jr stories.)
