Duck Dynasty Dad Says Media Calls Trump Fascist Because They’re Controlled By Satan

The Republican National Convention may officially be over now, but the show has just begun, and conservative TV star Phil Robertson knows just who it is writing the script. In an interview with Breitbart News Daily to wrap up the week, host Steve Bannon asked the self-styled “Duck Commander” why it is that media outlets like CNN and The Guardian and CBS News call Donald Trump a fascist, and his supporters nativist brownshirts. The answer might surprise you:

Satan controls our news media, Satan controls our institutions of higher learning, and he controls what goes on in Hollywood… They will label people like Trump what they are.

So there you have it. It’s not the Muslim bans and torture and chants of “Build that wall!” and the “textbook racism,” it’s Satan. This is what passes for an influential mind in Trump’s party.

Apparently, Hollywood-controlling Satan doesn’t control Cannes, where Robertson screened the documentary he’s promoting.

Here are Robertson’s remarks unedited, with digressions intact (you can hear the full interview here):
