THE STAR TREATMENT

He ‘hates farming, hates the military, hates the U.S. and we hate him!’
Country-music legend Hank Williams Jr. unleashed another round of less-than-flattering words for Barack Obama, this time Friday night at the Iowa State Fair.
According to the Des Moines Register, after Williams performed the song “We Don’t Apologize For America” a chant of “USA, USA” broke out among the crowd.
The singer responded with a smile, telling the audience he was their mouthpiece and added:
“We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the U.S. and we hate him!”
The crowd apparently loved what it heard, responding with “loud and enthusiastic” cheers.
The Register says when reached for comment Saturday, Brad Anderson with the Obama campaign in Iowa said, “That type of absurd nonsense doesn’t really deserve a response.”
In July, Williams Jr. told Rolling Stone magazine Obama “hates America in the first place, forget about the flag.”
Last October, the music legend received massive publicity when he appeared on “Fox & Friends” and blasted a golf game between Obama and House Speaker John Boehner.
