The "30 Rock" star's tweet comes in response to the country singer's comments that the president is "a Muslim who hates cowboys [and] loves gays."

Alec Baldwin has some choice words for Hank Williams Jr., the 63-year-old country singer who provides a voice and face to the most intolerant segment of President Obama's critics.

Williams' latest tyrade against the president occurred at the Stockyards Music Festival in Texas on Sunday, where the singer told the crowd, "We've got a Muslim for a president who hates cowboys, hates cowgirls, hates fishing, hates farming, loves gays, and we hate him!"

"If Hank Williams Jr. wasn't such a pathetic, wheezing fossil, I'd have a talk with him," Baldwin, 54, tweeted on Tuesday.

The 30 Rock star followed that up two minutes later, writing, "I think we need to call Hank Williams Jr. what he is ... A broken-down, senile, racist coot."

Last month, Williams delivered a similar speech at the Iowa State Fair, though it lacked the anti-gay language of his latest comments. And last year, Williams compared Obama to Adolph Hitler during an appearance on Fox News' Fox & Friends.
