On Fox and Friends this morning Hank Williams Jr. compared Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler.
Media Matters was quick to post the video:
Here’s the transcript:
CARLSON: All right. So, I’ll start with an easy question, who do you like in the GOP race?
STEVE DOOCY (co-host): Nobody?
WILLIAMS: You remember the — you remember the golf game they had, ladies and gentlemen?
WILLIAMS: Remember the golf game?
WILLIAMS: That was one of the biggest political mistakes ever.
WILLIAMS: That turned a lot of people off. You know, watching, you know, it just didn’t go over.
CARLSON: You mean when John Boehner played golf with President Obama?
WILLIAMS: Oh, yeah! Yeah. And Biden and Kasich, yeah. Uh-huh.
CARLSON: What did you not like about it? It seems to be a really pivotal moment for you.
WILLIAMS: Come on. Come on. It would be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu, OK?
WILLIAMS: Not hardly. In the country this shape is in, the shape this country’s in, I mean, no, I don’t think so.
BRIAN KILMEADE (co-host): Yeah, I don’t understand that analogy, actually.

FOX and Friends apologized for Hank’s comments when they came back from a break – which is more than the left ever did when their supporters regularly compared Bush to Hitler.
