(Newser) – Hank Williams Jr. has apologized—again—for comparing President Obama to Hitler during an appearance on Fox and Friends. The country singer, who was pulled from ESPN's Monday Night Football broadcast after saying Obama playing golf with John Boehner "would be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu," admitted that his comment was "dumb" in an apology posted on his website, Reuters reports.

"I have always been very passionate about Politics and Sports, and this time it got the Best or Worst of me," he wrote. "The thought of the Leaders of both Parties Jukin and High Fiven on a Golf course, while so many Families are Struggling to get by simply made me Boil over." ESPN says it hasn't made a decision yet on Williams' future with the network.
