Hank Williams Jr. dumped by ESPN after Obama-Hitler comparison

Just days after pulling his iconic Monday Night Football intro following controversial comments on FOXNNews involving President Barack Obama, ESPN announced that it's terminating its relationship with country music star Hank Williams Jr.

"We have decided to part ways with Hank Williams, Jr. We appreciate his contributions over the past years," the company said in a statement. "The success of Monday Night Football has always been about the games and that will continue."

Williams found simself in hot water when commentating on Obama and John Boehner's recent attempt at diplomacy on the golf course saying "[It} would be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu. Not hardly. In the shape this country is in?"

FOX and Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade immediately said that he didn't understand the analogy and Williams continued: "I'm glad you don't brother, because a lot of people do. They're the enemy... Obama! And Biden! Are you kidding? The Three Stooges."
