(Newser) – Hank Williams Jr.'s Fox and Friends interview got weird right off the bat this morning, as he sat back with sunglasses on and arms crossed and dourly noted, "I'd rather be up there looking at Gretchen [Carlson]." But things got even weirder when Carlson asked Williams which Republican presidential candidate he liked and he responded, "Nobody." That turned into a critique of John Boehner's golf game with President Obama, which Williams said "would be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu, OK?"

"I don’t understand that analogy, actually," responded Brian Kilmeade as his co-hosts sat around looking baffled. "Well, I’m glad you don’t, brother, because a lot of people do," Williams said. "You know, they’re the enemy. They’re the enemy." Who's the enemy? "Obama! And Biden! Are you kidding? The three stooges!" Mediaite notes that Carlson was quick to react after Williams went off the air: "I just want to say that we disavow any of those comments or analogies that he’s made, at least I’m going to say that, disavow the analogy between Hitler and the president," she said.
