Hank Williams Jr. took to his official website yesterday to clear the air and thank his supporters during the growing controversy of his comments about Barack Obama and Adolf Hitler. Williams compared the President to Hitler on Fox News earlier this week, which led ESPN to removing him from the Monday Night Football opening montage. He doesn’t exactly apologize for his analogy:
“Some of us have strong opinions and are often misunderstood. My analogy was extreme – but it was to make a point. I was simply trying to explain how stupid it seemed to me – how ludicrous that pairing was. They’re polar opposites and it made no sense. They don’t see eye-to-eye and never will. I have always respected the office of the President.”
