Willie Robertson Says ‘America Is In A Bad Spot’ During Republican National Convention Speech


Donning his trademark American flag bandana, Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson took the stage at the Republican National Convention.

He began his speech with a prayer for his home state of Louisiana in light of the Baton Rouge shooting. 

Robertson continued with something he’s said before at Trump rallies.

“I’ve always said that me and Mr. Trump have three things in common. We’re both successful businessmen, we both have had hit television shows, and we both have intelligent wives that are much better looking than we are.”

That line always gets a good laugh.

Robertson has been a vocal supporter of Trump’s since the very beginning and his father, Phil, who previously endorsed Senator Ted Cruz, is now on the “Trump Train”.

“Let me tell you why I’ve been on the Trump train from the beginning,” he said. “See, when you’re from the South, and you grow up with rednecks, there are some occasional disagreements. Sometimes those disagreements turn into fisticuffs. Anytime I was ever in a bad spot, I always knew my brothers had my back. And today in a lot of ways, America is in a bad spot. And we need a President who will have our back. I can promise you this, no matter who you are, Donald Trump will have your back.”

Robertson gave examples of when Trump would “have your back”.

  • If you’re looking for a job, or trying to grow a business
  • If you’re a serviceman who is fighting oversees
  • A cop who is risking their lives to keep us safe at home
  • An average American who feels like you’ve been forgotten by far away leaders

Robertson ended his speech with, “Donald Trump will always tells you the truth as he sees it and that’s why we can trust him to Make America Great Again as our next President.”
