Ted Cruz thinks “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson would make an excellent United Nations ambassador.
“Imagine for a second, Phil Robertson ambassador to the United Nations,” Ted Cruz said Friday morning during a campaign rally in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina where the reality star made an appearance.
“You know what? There is a reason why he terrifies the mainstream media. He says things you’re not supposed to say. He actually remembers who we are as Americans,” Cruz said of Robertson. “He speaks it with a joy. Not with anger, not with hatred — with a joy.”

Twitter reaction on the Cruz/Robertson partnership seems polarized:

Phil Robertson is a joke. Just go back to hunting ducks and keep your mouth shut.
