Everybody has an opinion, and they have a right to speak their mind. I have always had a personal belief that politics and music don’t mix, however Hank might have other beliefs..and that’s cool.

Cantankerous country music legend Hank Williams Jr. took another shot at President Obama while performing at the Iowa State Fair on Friday night.“We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the U.S., and we hate him!” Williams told the pumped-up crowd.

His remarks came after many of the 8,500 fans in attendance chanted “U-S-A, U-S-A,” following the song, “We Don’t Apologize for America,” reported The Daily.

The outspoken country star, 63, previously likened Obama to Hitler during a controversial appearance on “Fox and Friends” last year.

ESPN responded to that outburst by dropping Williams’ “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight” from the opening credits of “Monday Night Football,” after it had appeared on the show for two decades.

Responding to Williams’ latest dig at the president, an Obama campaign spokesman said, “That type of absurd nonsense doesn’t really deserve a response.”
