NEW YORK (CBS NEWS) - Hank Williams Jr. made it pretty clear which presidential candidate he’ll be voting for come November. The country singer took a political swing at President Barack Obama while performing for a crowd of 8,500 at the Iowa State Fair Grandstand on Friday night.

After finishing the song, “We Don’t Apologize For America,” the audience started chanting “USA!” According to the Des Moines Register, Williams then told the crowd, “We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the U.S. and we hate him!”

According to the concert review, Williams’ comments brought on cheers and applause.

His latest album, “Old School, New Rules,” is riddled with political jabs against Mr. Obama, too. In the song, “Take Back Our Country,” Williams sings, “Hey Barack, pack your bags, head to Chicago, take your teleprompter with you so you’ll know where to go.”
