Country crooner Hank Williams, Jr. is not shy about sharing his outlandish opinions about President Barack Obama.

This time around, Williams aired his thoughts to an enthusiastic crowd of 8,500 during a concert at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines Friday night.

A reviewer for the Des Moines Register wrote that after he played “We Don’t Apologize for America,” Williams went on a political tirade against his favorite target.

“We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the US and we hate him!” he said as cheers erupted from the audience.

Last year, Williams was fired from singing Monday Night Football’s famous theme song “Are you ready for some football?” after he made controversial remarks about the so-called golf summit between Obama and Speaker of the House John Boehner during the debt ceiling crisis.

“You remember the golf game they had, ladies and gentlemen? Remember the golf game? That was one of the biggest political mistakes ever,” Williams said during an appearance on “Fox & Friends.” “That turned a lot of people off. It just didn’t go over.”

“Come on, come on,” Williams continued. “It would be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu, OK? Not hardly. In the country this shape it’s in, the shape this country is in, I mean, no, I don’t think so.”
