Hannity thanks Williams, Jr. for not apologizing, even though he did
Hank Williams Jr. probably doesn’t have to worry about Sean Hannity ever criticizing him.
On Monday’s edition of Hannity, the conservative host praised the country singer for not saying sorry right after comparing President Barack Obama to Hitler onFox & Friends interview last week.
“Frankly I’m glad that you said ‘I’m not apologizing,” Hannity said to Williams. “Everyone gets in a minute of a controversy boy, you know its truth, what’s the first thing, ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry.'”
Trouble is, Williams actually did apologize. “I am very sorry if it offended anyone,” he wrote on his Facebook page just two days after making the comments.
“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 and make a Dumb statement and I am very Sorry if it Offended anyone.”
The singer, who was as animated throughout the interview as he was with Fox News’ morning crew, returned the warm feelings back to Hannity.
“You are the only one who stands up and speaks his mind and speaks for us and the way it really is,” Williams said to the host.
