Of all the speakers at the RNC convention in Cleveland this week, most were excited to hear Duck Dynasty's Willie Robertson. Though he is no political big wig, he has what people are looking for: humor, candor, and relatability. And he did not disappoint in his speech triumphing Donald Trump's nomination, reports the Christian Post.
"It's been a rough year for the media experts. It must be humbling to be wrong about so much for so long but I have a theory about how they missed the Trump train," Robertson half-mocked.
"They don't hang out with regular folks like us who like to hunt and fish and pray and actually work for a living. Heck, I don't even know if they know how to talk to people from Middle America. I mean when I tell them I'm from Louisiana, they really start talking real slow and real loud," he continued in an attack on the stereotypical views people on the coast tend to have about Middle America."
"Let me tell you why I've been on the Trump train from the beginning. See, when you're from the South and you grow up with rednecks, there are some occasional disagreements. Sometimes those disagreements turn into fisticuffs but anytime I was ever in a bad spot I always knew my brothers would have 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. And I can promise you this, no matter who you are, Donald Trump will have your back," Robertson said.
Continuing in a very strong endorsement, Robertson said:"If you're looking for a job or trying to grow a business like I am, Donald Trump will have your back. If you're a serviceman overseas or a cop risking their lives to help keep us safe at home, Donald Trump will have your back. If you're an average American who feels like you've been forgotten, neglected by faraway leaders, that the deck is stacked against you and you just can't win, Donald Trump will have your back."
"Now he may not always tell you what you want to hear. You may not always agree and he may not always be politically correct but when your father is Phil Robertson, I'm used to that ok?" Robertson continued. "But I tell you this, Donald Trump will always, always tell you the truth as he sees it. And that's why we can trust him to make America great again as our next president."
