Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson offered some free advice to 2016 presidential candidates at the Conservative Political Action Conference Friday.
“To keep you out of trouble, and to keep the scandals down, let me give you a little word of advice,” he said as he took a huge worn bible out of his bag. “Carry two things with you wherever you go — in case one of you gets to be the president of the United States.”
“Make sure you carry your Bible with you, and your woman,” he said. “Safety, safety!”
Robertson was honored at CPAC for standing “firm in his faith” when his show was suspended in 2013 over comments he made condemning same-sex “marriage.” Citizens United awarded him the “Andrew Breitbart Defender of the First Amendment Award.”
“The good news is I’m not running for anything,” he continued. “And as far as I know I’m not running from anything.”
Robertson responded to criticism from some that he’s “just too religious,” by reading a series of quotes from the founding fathers discussing how important religion was to many of them.
“I’m trying to help you, for crying out loud, America,” he said.
He also offered House Speaker John Boehner some advice. “Here’s a newsflash,” he said. “Just make sure you pass good bills coming out of that House that affects my life.”
