"Duck Dynasty's" Willie Robertson, now a Fox News Radio contributor, sat down with the John Gibson Show and gave his view of one of the biggest topics of the past week: Target's new bathroom policy.
Target sparked an outcry among conservatives when last week they announced that customers and employees can use any restroom that matches their "gender identity" regardless of their biological sex.
"How do you think [Target's policy would] go over in your family?" Gibson inquired.
"Not very good," Willie chuckled, then gave a bizarre, meandering answer that might be a result of his strong support for Donald Trump who recently said transgender people should be able to use the bathroom of their choice.
"You know, I've actually thought about this, and I don't know that I have the answer. I can go back to my hotel here in New York and go to the bathroom and plug it up and essentially flood the entire hotel. So, I can do that. Is it the wisest thing to do? No. So I don't know how exactly to fix this situation."
Willie didn't explain what that illustration has to do with Target's bathrooms, but then said something more definite: "Maybe it's what you look like. I guess if you're in a dress and you look like a female, then you should go in the female restroom even if you're a male."
But then he appeared to walk back that declaration, which would likely anger the nearly 1 million people who have signed the "Boycott Target Pledge."
"I really don't know the answer," he repeated. "I think Target, if they...really believe passionately in this, your bottom line will change because you've got to go in and rip out the restroom that you have and make a bunch of individual restrooms. That I would respect. If you're really going to do it, then do it where everybody is comfortable. But guess what? They don't want to do that because it's going to cost a ton of money."
Then Willie acknowledge the danger factor, saying that if Target doesn't make all restrooms individual, "people will get hurt. People will be violated. There will be men that go into women's restrooms, and I just hope it's not my children or my wife in there when creepy people are going to do that. It's just the sad nature of our country right now. I don't have the exact answer, but if we're going to rip out every bathroom in America and make everything an individual bathroom, there you go."
"We've got tons of money in this country, he added sarcastically. "Now we'll be at $23 trillion in debt so we can all have an individual bathroom and keep creeps out of bathrooms."
But then he said something that made it sound like he didn't see why this issue was a big deal.
"I don't get it," Willie said. "It's just a bathroom."
And then he appeared to waver back.
"There's some creepy people out there who are going to feel like a lady a lot, I would presume," he said, "and you know you're going to have people in there...then..." he trailed off.
"It's insanity," he concluded, "But that's our country."
What do you think he's trying to say here?
