Hank Williams Jr. may end up regretting an analogy he made this morning on “Fox & Friends.”
When Williams shared his political opinions with the show’s hosts, the interview became awkward and concluded with Gretchen Carlson publicly disavowing some of Williams’ statements — particularly a comment that was made about President Barack Obama and Adolf Hitler.
When asked by Gretchen Carlson who he likes in the GOP presidential race, Williams responded, “Nobody.” It was after this that the conversation took a bizarre turn. Here is a transcript of the dialogue that followed:
HANK WILLIAMS: Remember the golf game?
STEVE DOOCY: Boehner?
HANK WILLIAMS: That was one of the biggest political mistakes ever.
HANK WILLIAMS: That turned a lot of people off. You know, watching, you know, it just didn’t go over.
GRETCHEN CARLSON: You mean when John Boehner played golf with President Obama?
HANK WILLIAMS: Oh, yeah! Yeah. And Biden and Kasich, yeah. Uh-huh.
GRETCHEN CARLSON: What did you not like about it? It seems to be a really pivotal moment for you.
HANK WILLIAMS: Come on. Come on. It would be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu, OK?
After the statement was made, all three Fox hosts look surprised, if not uncomfortable. Carlson had a visible look of shock on her face, while Brian Kilmeade said, “Yeah, I don’t understand that analogy, actually.”
At the end of the uncomfortable interview, Carlson said that she disavowed Williams’ comments. Watch the scenario unfold, below:
