Phil Robertson, the patriarch of Duck Dynasty, endorsed Ted Cruz for President over two weeks ago.

Last week his son Willie endorsed Donald Trump for President.

Since the two agree on so many things, how did this happen? They both stopped by the "Hannity" show at Fox News to talk about it.

According to Fox News, Phil said "It could have been worse. He could've said, 'Dad, I'm going with Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders'...Then we would have had some worries."

Phil explained that Cruz stood out to him as being a moral and religious man, and that was good enough for him.

To Willie, he liked the fact that Trump is not in debt to donors or lobbyists, and he has a background as a successful businessman. He thinks Trump can "shake things up", because the system is broken.

Phil added he is not anti-Trump, and he will support Trump if he wins the nomination.
