Duck Dynasty Star Warns ‘Young Bucks’ Not to be Seduced by ‘Slick Talker’ Trump
Take it from a reality TV star. You don’t want a reality TV star to be president.
Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson spoke to Fox News’s Neil Cavuto Sunday to explain why he was supporting Ted Cruz and why “young bucks” like Cavuto should be wary of that “slick talker” currently leading the party in the polls.
“I’ve been watching you,” Robertson told Cavuto. “I love you as a son… I just want to warn you young bucks that you don’t want to be gullible and let some fast talking businessman lead you down a road that you don’t want to go. You see what I’m saying?”
“I don’t, but you scare me so I won’t go into it,” Cavuto replied.

Robertson said his son Willy‘s endorsement of Donald Trump was an example of “what can happen to young bucks such as Willy and yourself when they let some slick talker lead them down a path that they don’t want to go, Neil.”
Robertson expanded on his reasons for endorsing Cruz: “Cruz loves God and James Madison for crying out loud!” He continued:
James Madison, Neil, was the man who said we’ve staked the whole of American civilization not upon the power of government … far from it! He said we’ve staked all our political institutions on the capacity of each of ourselves to govern ourselves, control ourselves, and sustain ourselves — based on the Ten Commandments of God. Therefore: Cruz trusts God. Cruz trusts James Madison. That’s why, Neil, I trust Cruz. You understand what I’m saying?
Right Wing Watch notes that Robertson was apparently peddling a decades-old fake James Madison quote, one which is “inconsistent with everything we know about Madison’s views on religion and government, views which he expressed time and time again in public and in private,” according to the curators of the Madison Papers at the University of Virginia.
Cavuto didn’t press the issue. “I’m just too afraid to challenge you on anything,” he said.
