Hank Williams Jr. said President Obama is "the worst" in an interview with Rolling Stone published Wednesday (July 11) on the magazine's website. Asked about his opinion of Obama, Williams replied, "I mean, the guy is the worst. Giveaway programs, hates America in the first place, forget about the flag." Regarding Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Williams said, "He's the guy I'm behind. You know, he's the guy we need, but I'm not going to go out there and do his shows or anything." In October 2011, Williams grabbed national headlines following a Fox & Friends interview in which he compared President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner playing golf together to "Hitler playing golf with [Israeli leader Benjamin] Netanyahu." The remark ultimately prompted ESPN to discontinue running the singer's "Are You Ready for Some Football?" theme song used on the network's Monday Night Football telecast.
