At his Iowa State Fair Grandstand concert on Friday night, singer Hank Williams, Jr. reportedly bashed President Obama. “We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the U.S. and we hate him!” he said, according to the Des Moines Register. He had recently completed singing the song “We Don’t Apologize For America” and his reported 8,500 fans cheered for him when he made that statement. The performer, whose Monday Night Football theme was dropped after he made similarly offensive comments about President Obama last year, also made dismissive comments about both ESPN and Fox & Friends.
