Alec Baldwin has been known to deliver a rant or two or three on Twitter.  He’s at it again, and the subject of the 30 Rock actor’s 140-character barbs this time is Hank Williams Jr.

Williams recently criticized President Obama during a concert at the Iowa State Fair, saying, “We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the U.S. and we hate him!”  Obama is Christian, not Muslim.

That comment has prompted Baldwin to tweet, “If Hank Williams Jr wasn’t such a pathetic, wheezing fossil, I’d have a talk with him.”  The actor added, “I think we need to call Hank Williams Jr what he is…A broken-down, senile, racist coot.”

Last year, Williams’s music was pulled from the opening of ESPN’s Monday Night Football after Williams compared President Obama to Hitler.
