Country crooner Hank Williams Jr. hit the stage at the Iowa State Fair and hit Obama – “We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the US and we hate him!”
The crowd loved it. Hank, now 63 years old, played for nearly 8,500 people for nearly two hours

Are you ready for some political commentary?
Country legend Hank Williams Jr. played to a crowd of nearly 8,500 at the Iowa State Fair Grandstand Friday night.
You may recall, criticism of President Barack Obama on a Fox News program last year led to ESPN dropping Williams’ “Monday Night Football” theme song after 22 years. Friday, Williams shot barbs at Obama, ESPN and “Fox & Friends” in his opening song “Keep the Change” before launching into “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight,” the basis for the “MNF” theme.
Williams was lively and over the top, strolling the stage, strumming his guitar, sawing on his fiddle and hammering on the piano during a nearly two hour set. Performing is in Williams blood, and the lineage of talent was on clear display…
…Following the song “We Don’t Apologize For America” a chant of “USA, USA” broke out amongst the crowd. Williams smiled, telling the crowd that he was their mouth piece and adding:
“We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the US and we hate him!”
The cheers that followed were loud and enthusiastic.
