Well, this should make for an interesting episode of Duck Dynasty. A nephew of family patriarch Phil Robertson has announced his intent to run for Congress, the Associated Press reports.
During an interview with CNN this week, Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson defended his father Phil, who was briefly suspended from the A&E series in December after making homophobic and racist remarks in GQ.
Robertson said he believed the interviewer already "had what he wanted to put" in the article and goated Phil into making those statements by "specifically asking this and that." "Phil just said what he thought, what was on his heart," Robertson said, though he admitted his father "did some paraphrasing there."
Duck Dynasty has been in the news a lot following Phil Robertson's controversial anti-gay comments, but one of the youngest members of the dynasty is coming forward with a more positive message.
