Comments on FOX Get Hank Williams Jr. Booted from Monday Night Football
Are you ready for some
football political controversy?
For some reason country singer Hank Williams Jr. appeared on Fox & Friends to breakdown the 2012 Presidential field. Co-host Brian Kilmeade introduced Williams by saying:
“It’s not all about music for this country superstar, he knows a little about politics too”
Turns out he knows very little about politics, which is probably what Kilmeade was thinking by the end of this interview.
Williams appeared via satellite and was decked out in his finest button-up with leather trim, sunglasses, a ripped Alabama cap and a full beard. Kilmeade astutely observed “your body language says, uh, leave you alone.” It’s instantly obvious that Williams is on this show because he’s got something to say and he wastes little time getting down to business.
Turns out Williams has been steaming since early June about House Speaker John Boehner’s round of golf with President Obama, Vice-President Joe Biden and Ohio Republican Governor John Kasich. The very rational Williams said of the golf game:
“That was one of the biggest political mistakes ever… Come on, it’d be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu, Okay?”
Kilmeade responded, “I don’t understand that analogy actually.”
Wait, so a round of golf the President of the United States and the Speaker of the House played in June is like Adolph Hitler (responsible for the deaths of over 46 million Europeans over the course of WWII) playing a round of golf with Benjamin Netanyahu (current Prime Minister of Israel).
I don’t understand it either, but Williams pressed on:
“In the country this shape is in... the shape this country’s in I mean... They’re the enemy... Obama and Biden! The Three Stooges!”
Then, in what was the by far the best part of the interview, co-host Steve Doocy replies with a smirk as he looks off camera, “That’s only two.” Priceless.
The bad news is that the level of political discourse in this country continues to devolve into offensive, yet nonsensical, talking points. The good news is that Hank Williams Jr. is finally off Monday Night Football, just two decades after he stopped being relevant.
