Amid countless endorsements circulating around the 2016 presidential campaign, an announcement by the patriarch of one of America’s most recognizable families this week has gained particular attention.
Phil Robertson, best known for his appearance on A&E’s Duck Dynasty, explained in a new video that his family has a few general – and one very specific – qualifications for any candidate he considers endorsing.
“My qualifications for president of the United States,” he said, “are rather narrow: Is he or she godly, does he or she love us, can he or she do the job, and finally, would they kill a duck and put him in a pot and make him a good duck gumbo?”

Only one candidate currently in the race meets each of those requirements, Robertson explained.
“Ted Cruz is my man,” he declared. “He fits the bill. He’s godly, he loves us, he’s the man for the job, and he will go duck hunting – because today, we’re going.” (Read more from “‘Duck Dynasty’ Star Announces Presidential Endorsement – I Didn’t Expect This” HERE)
