Members of the 'Duck Dynasty' clan may have said earlier this summer that they endorsed their state's governor, Bobby Jindal, for the GOP nomination, but on Friday, Willie Robertson declared his love for a Yankee — New Yorker Donald Trump.
Robertson joined Trump at his rally at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City Friday evening, where he declared "I do like me some Trump, I gotta admit," reports ABC News.
The reality TV star joined Trump on stage after he called him not with a duck caller, but with a microphone, telling him "Willie, where the hell is Willie? Get over here! Look at this guy! Willie, do you love Trump?"
Robertson told the crowd that he and the GOP frontrunner have a lot in common.
"Here’s the deal," the bearded star said. "We’re both successful businessmen. We both have pretty big shows on television. We both have wives that are 1,000 times better looking than us so I like Trump."
The Robertsons, whose A&E reality show not only showcases their family business, but their religious and family values, have been sought for endorsements by not only Jindal, but several other Republican campaigns. The "Duck Dynasty" crew, whose widely successful reality television show about their family's business, has been courted by several Republican campaigns.
In May, though, Willie Robertson told Fox News that he endorses Jindal, who made a cameo appearance on last season's premiere of the hit A&E series.
Also, Jindal openly supported Robertson's father, "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson, after he said in GQ article that he did not approve of homosexuality and argued that being gay is a sin, statements that resulted in the father being temporarily suspended from his own show.
But this isn't the first time Willie Robertson has said he likes Trump. On a segment of Fox News' "Outnumbered" program this summer, he commented that he backs Jindal, but he still thinks Trump makes "a lot of sense" on topics such as immigration and that he would back him against Hillary Clinton in a general election.
