"Duck Dynasty" star Willie Robertson said he wouldn't mind talking politics with President Barack Obama in a duck blind.

"I'd like to talk and debate and find out what’s going on in his brain a little more," Robertson said Monday on Laura Ingraham's radio show.

"I don't shy away from people I disagree with. I want to know why they think what they do and see if you can move to maybe change their thinking in some ways. And I'm open myself. You know, I keep an open mind to other people's beliefs."



Robertson, who attended this year's State of the Union address as the guest of Louisiana Rep. Vance McAllister, said he spoke to Obama on that night and has spoken with him on other occasions.

"I’d like to get him out there with some camouflage and a gun and we could sit out there and talk," Robertson said. "That's the fun about hunting, especially duck hunting, is you can sit out there and talk. It's not like deer hunting where you have to be quiet."

Roberston said many debates have been carried out in his duck blind on various topics, including politics and religion. Those topics have been especially big this season, he said.

Robertson's father, Phil Robertson, made headlines in December when he talked about sinfulness and homosexuality in a GQ magazine interview. A&E, which airs "Duck Dynasty," initially suspended Phil Robertson from the show, but reinstated him after the rest of the family said they would not continue shooting the reality show without their patriarch.
