Hank Williams Jr: ‘Mickey is a mean mouse’

Week 2 of the fallout from the downfall of Hank Williams Jr:

His new song — the one critical of “Fox & Friends” and ESPN — went up on his website and YouTube today and he appeared on “The View” to discuss the end of his relationship with “Monday Night Football.”

Williams and his “MNF” theme song were out after he made a controversial analogy last week linking President Obama and Adolf Hitler on “Fox & Friends.” He recorded a song last Friday called “Keep the Change,” with lyrics describing the “United Socialist States of America.”

In an appearance this morning on “The View,” which, like ABC and ESPN, is owned by Disney, Williams said: “The bottom line, folks, is Mickey is a mean mouse.”

The video that started it all, in case you missed it:
