Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson Says He Wants to go Duck Hunting with President Obama

willie-robertsonDespite what people might think of Duck Dynasty or Phil Robertson’s ignorant comments about homosexuals and African Americans, it’s hard to deny that Willie Robertson is one hell of a businessman.  He took a duck call business and turned it into a massive multimillion dollar empire with its own wine, clothing, chocolate bars, sections in stores and even sponsorship of a NASCAR race.

That being said, it’s clear based on the comments by his father (and the fact that the family is extremely religious) that he’s not exactly a liberal.  In fact, it’s probably safe to say he’s probably a big fan of the tea party.

Well it seems Willie Robertson would love to take President Obama duck hunting to figure out what’s going on in his brain.

During a recent radio interview Robertson said, “I’d like to talk and debate and find out what’s going on in his brain a little more.”  He said he enjoys discussing things with people he disagrees with to “see if you can move to maybe change their thinking in some ways.”

Personally, I would love to see this happen.  It would be the highest rated episode of Duck Dynasty in history and I think it would be priceless to see Willie Robertson (though undoubtedly a very smart businessman) try to “school” President Obama – someone who has a bachelors degree from Columbia and a law degree from Harvard.

Though I know know this would never happen, it’s still something that I think would be fantastic television.

While I know being a business owner comes with certain advantages, I do always find it funny when someone who runs a business thinks they know how to handle an economy better than anyone else.  The fact of the matter is, running a country and running a business are nothing alike.

After all, Mitt Romney became a very rich man owning several businesses and we saw what an absolute train wreck he was as a potential United States president.  He couldn’t even handle one overseas trip without insulting several nations he visited and was one of the most gaffe prone presidential candidates in modern history.

So while this hypothetical meeting between President Obama and Willie Robertson will most likely never happen, if it did, I would definitely tune in to watch.  Which gets back to the real reason Willie probably wants it to happen – because the show’s viewership is currently in the toilet compared to previous seasons.

    Hell no. That Duck killing machine just wants an excuse to do the same to Obama. Ignore Duck Dynasty!!!!

      Ignorance is bliss

  • shutdafrtdoor

    He’d probably bring Cheney riding “shotgun”!

    • PoppaDavid

      That would be a good one. Just let Cheney and Robinson go together and see which one comes back.

    Obama appearing on Duck Dynasty’s show would bring a **LOT** of publicity and credibility to Duck (including the ability to rescue his failing show and make a lot more money). But what does President Obama get out of it other than appearing on a bottom tier cable-TV reality show that is rapidly going down the drain ? An appearance with an unstable person who makes bigoted remarks and is likely to turn on the President ?
    Even the supreme egotist O’Reilley only thought he could get Mrs. Obama to dance to his drum and force her to appear on his show. This Duck guy thinks he’s going to force the President ?

    I know that President Obama is way too smart than to go duck hunting with Any of the duck dynasty family. He would undoubtedly have to wear a bullet proof vest. Both the Obamas have more class than that whole duck dynasty bunch.

    • Bine646

      More class than to hang out w a Robertson? Yet Obama frequents with rappers like Jayz who was acquitted of a stabbing in 1999 of his producer and brags about selling crack cocaine to gain riches. Yes, President Obama is on another level- pfffff

      • Me

        You’re not actually serious, are you? Obama invited Jay Z to be the live entertainment at some event a few years ago. You really equate that with “frequenting” with “rappers like Jay Z”? That’s like saying that having Duck Dynasty playing in the background on your TV while having company over at your house is “frequenting with conservatives like Robertson”.

      • Bine646

        Umm youre not serious are you? They met in 2008 and have been friends ever since. Jayz put his face all over that campaign. When Jay had his first child, Obama called to offer advice and spoke about it on national tv.
        Remember Jayz’s recent trip to Cuba- heres his lyrics about it. “I turned Havana into Atlanta… Boy from the hood/ I got White House clearance… Obama said, ‘Chill you gonna get me impeached/ You don’t need this shit anyway, chill with me on the beach'”.

        Jayz was a guest at not only the White House or inauguration but also throughout his campaign- donating loads of money and hosting dinners. A Huffington Post is cited as saying ” He also took a moment to poke fun at Jay-Z, a rapper that the president has maintained close ties to throughout his campaigning and fundraising.
        Some things are beyond my control. For example, this whole controversy about Jay-Z going to Cuba – it’s unbelievable. I’ve got 99 problems and now Jay-Z is one,” Obama said, borrowing a phrase from Jay-Z’s hit 2004 song.”

        Don’t even get me started on his wife, Beyonce- who has performed at acouple events for the President and is close with the first lady.

        Next your going to tell me that me watching tiger woods on tv is the same as obama playing golf with him- do alittle research

      What are the odds that we might yet see Obie use one or two of those smarts while doing his job for his term is over.

  • Jim Bean

    Its a waste of time. Whatever it is that is going on in Obama’s head, it is inexplicable.

  • Edie Gayton

    Obama is not smart enough to find his way out of a wet paper bag. What could he ever find to talk about with a God fearing, honest, hardworking American?
