Hank Williams Jr. Takes to Song to Slam “Fox & Friends”

Country singer Hank Williams Jr. has composed a new tune responding to the uproar when he made a Hitler analogy of President Obama’s relationship to House Speaker John Boehner.

The song, “I’ll Keep My …,” claims that “Fox & Friends” twisted his words during an interview on the show last week, triggering a controversy that led to ESPN pulling his “Are you ready for some football?” line from “Monday Night Football.”

Per the AP, one of the lines in the song is: So Fox `n Friends wanna put me down/Ask for my opinion/Twist it all around.” He finishes the verse: “Well two can play that gotcha game you’ll see.

He also says that the country is becoming “The United Socialist States of America.”

But Williams has garnered support from left of center figures like Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg of “The View,” who argued that his comments were misconstrued. That’s a reason why he chose to appear on the show on Tuesday, as well as on “Hannity.”

“Whoopi and Joy understood what I was saying,” Williams said on his website.  “After watching the clip of their show, I knew I needed to talk to them first.  Who knows Whoopi may run for President and I’ll be her Vice President…now that will really stir it up!”

Least surprising thing about this flap: Williams is now selling Hank Jr. for President merchandise.
