If you thought that Duck Commander patriarch Phil Robertson would manage to stay out of the coming election battle between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, you were sadly wrong. Robertson came out for Ted Cruz during the primary — despite his son Willie joining Donald Trump on stage for a few of those fun rallies — going hunting for ducks with the Texas senator / likely suspect.
Those days are long gone, and now Robertson is forced to decide his champion once again. In a recent interview with Colorado Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt, Robertson reveals his new views on the election. Will it be Hillary Clinton? Of course not. Instead, Robertson has created a scenario where he can support Donald Trump’s ascension to the White House:
Ideally, Robertson said, “we convert Mr. Trump” to Christianity so that all of his past scandals and indiscretions that will be brought up during the campaign will be rendered moot because he has been born again.
“If he but be born again, he could then tell them, ‘That’s the old me, I’ve been born again, this is the new Donald Trump,'”
He also goes on to talk about being a member of the Trump cabinet as spiritual advisor, a thought he claims will send “left wingers” jumping out of windows.
That’s not the end of the interview. Robertson also shared some wisdom on why he believes ISIS is so keen to kill us on our own soil:
“We’ve killed 60 million of our own children,” he said. “ISIS is saying to us, ‘Well, if you didn’t think your own children were worth anything, why do you think we’re worried about what your life is worth? We don’t think you’re worth anything, that’s why we’re killing you. Just like you kill your children, that’s why we kill you. We don’t think you’re worth anything.’ ”
“If we could have stood there and told them, ‘no, to us life is precious,’ ” Robertson said, then things would be different, but sadly “we lost the moral high ground.”
