Watch: ‘Duck Dynasty’ Says THIS Trump Move Was ‘One Of The Best Things I’ve Ever Seen In My Life’

Even though he endorsed another candidate, Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson commended Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for some of his recent actions.

The panel on Fox and Friends asked Robertson what he thought about his fellow Louisianan, Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal, who is currently seeking the GOP presidential nomination. “Great guy, Christian man, just a smart guy. And always there,” Robertson said. “I think we saw that through everything the state has been through, you know, Bobby shows up, he’s there and he wants to be with the people and hug their necks and hold their hands, and it didn’t surprise me at all to see that he was down in Lafayette.”

Robertson was referring to a shooting at a movie theater in Lafayette, La., Thursday, which left two dead and 11 more injured. Jindal was in the city hours after the incident occurred. Co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck asked Robertson if he endorsed Jindal, who is currently lagging in the polls, for president. “I do, yeah, we talk a lot. I like what he stands for, where he’s at. I’ll be with him.” Robertson’s brother and sister-in-law, Jep and Jessica Robertson, endorsed Jindal last month.

Steve Doocy later asked Robertson if he had any thoughts on Trump and the headlines surrounding him. “It’s like the wild, wild west out there,” Robertson quipped. “I’m enjoying it. I’m enjoying watching all the soundbites and how they’re getting after each other. I think Trump’s laying it out there. I think that’s definitely appealing to a lot of people.”

Robertson noted he disagreed with Trump’s remarks about Sen. John McCain’s service record. “But some of the other stuff he’s saying makes sense,” Robertson said. The Duck Commander CEO also lauded Trump for publicly releasing the personal cell phone number of fellow GOP presidential candidate Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. “When [Trump] dropped the cell phone number, that was the best thing I had seen in my life,” Robertson said.

“That’s happened to me, so I was glad somebody else got it,” he continued. “But I think that’s what he’s doing, he’s calling out the, perhaps, the hypocrisy in some of this. Where some people are your friends one minute and then they’re not, so I like that part about where he said, ‘I thought you liked me last year, and now you don’t like me?’”

Trump Just Issued This Stern Threat To The GOP…The Establishment Will Think Twice About Attacking Him Now

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump opened the door to a third-party run for the White House if he does not win the GOP nomination.

In an interview with The Hill Wednesday, Trump bemoaned his current relationship with the Republican National Committee. “The RNC has not been supportive. They were always supportive when I was a contributor. I was their fair-haired boy,” Trump said from his Manhattan office at Trump Tower. “The RNC has been, I think, very foolish.” Trump was asked directly if he would run on a third-party ticket and did not rule it out, noting that “so many people want me to, if I don’t win.”

I’ll have to see how I’m being treated by the Republicans  … Absolutely, if they’re not fair, that would be a factor.

The comments come only a few weeks after Trump revealed the details of a call during which RNC chairman Reince Priebus advised the real estate mogul to “keep it down a little bit” with regard to his rhetoric.

More recently, Trump, who has been leading recent polls, drew fire from several of his fellow GOP presidential candidates for asserting at a forum in Iowa Saturday that Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., was “not a war hero” in the Vietnam War. “I like people that weren’t captured,” Trump said at the time.

One of said candidates was Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who called Trump a “jackass” for his comments. At a rally in Graham’s home state of South Carolina Tuesday, Trump responded by calling the senator an “idiot” and releasing his personal cell phone number.

Watch: Trump Just Took Revenge On Lindsey Graham With A Bizarrely Brutal On-Stage Move

Presidential candidates Donald Trump and Senator Lindsey Graham have been engaging in a war of words over the last few days, which led the former to make an unusual move on Tuesday.

At a campaign stop in Graham’s home state of South Carolina, Trump called the senator an “idiot” in response to him calling the billionaire a “jackass” during an interview the day before.

“What a stiff, what a stiff, Lindsey Graham. By the way he has registered zero in the polls,” Trump said to the South Carolina crowd. “A total lightweight. In the private sector, he couldn’t get a job.”

Trump told those in attendance that Graham called him a few years ago, trying to get the former reality star to put in a good word for him at Fox News.

“So he gave me his number, and I found the card! I wrote the number down!” said Trump.

“Let’s give it a try,” he suggested to the crowd, showing the card to the audience and reading the number twice aloud.

“Trump acknowledged that the number was several years old and might no longer be in service but added ‘I don’t know, give it a shot,’” NBC News reports.

The cell number in fact did still belong to the senator, but went to voicemail.

Graham’s campaign manager, Christian Ferry, said: “Donald Trump continues to show hourly that he is ill-prepared to be commander in chief. The two people most excited about Donald Trump’s candidacy are Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Because of Trump’s bombastic and ridiculous campaign, we aren’t talking about Obama’s horrible deal with Iran or Hillary Clinton’s plans to continue Obama’s failed national security agenda.”

Graham tweeted on Tuesday:

Lindsey Graham Phone Tweet

The recent dust-up between the two candidates began when Trump said that Graham’s friend, Sen. John McCain, was “a war hero because he was captured” by the Vietnamese. “I prefer the people who weren’t captured,” the candidate added.

“Anybody who suggests that John and his fellow POWs are somehow lacking and can’t be called ‘American hero,’ you shouldn’t be our commander-in-chief,” Graham said in New York Monday.

Robert Kiger, who launched a super PAC to support Trump, dismissed the controversy surrounding the comments as out-of-control political correctness.

“People are really, really tired of the establishment, people are tired of professional politicians who make huge promises, go to Washington and then do absolutely nothing,” he said.

Trump did not limit his remarks about fellow candidates to Lindsey Graham. He also went after former Texas governor Rick Perry, who also said Trump is unfit to be commander-in-chief because of his comments about John McCain and likened his brand of politics to “a cancer.”

“He put on glasses so people will think he’s smart,” Trump said of Perry’s recent choice in eyewear. “It just doesn’t work.”

“As it now stands, Trump leads the national Republican primary polls. A Washington Post poll, completed late last week, found that 24% of Republicans and Republican leaning independents supported Trump’s candidacy. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker held second place with 13% support,” Time reports.

Watch: Establishment Republican Accidentally Reveals Why So Many Love Trump With Two Words

Appearing on NBC’s Today show this week, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham became the latest Republican presidential candidate to criticize Donald Trump’s comments regarding illegal immigration.

“I think he’s riding a wave of just outlandish behavior that some people in the Republican Party like hearing,” Graham said of Trump’s recent popularity, “that all the illegal immigrants are for the most part rapists and drug dealers and some of them may be good.”

Capture

While Trump enjoys a hardy lead over even establishment front-runners like Jeb Bush, Graham nonetheless concluded that “the overwhelming majority of Republicans don’t like that rhetoric.”

He went on to insist the real estate tycoon is just “riding a wave,” adding that he is “absolutely not” ready to serve as president.

“He says he’s going to charge the Mexican government $100,000 for every immigrant that comes across the border,” Graham said of Trump’s platform. “We live in the most complicated, dangerous times in the world; and he’s a wrecking ball when it comes to policy. And the way he’s engaged the public is hurting the Republican Party at a time we have a chance to do better.”

Graham’s use of the phrase “wrecking ball” to describe the brash politician not only elicited social media references to the Miley Cyrus hit of the same name, but prompted some Trump supporters to explain it is exactly that quality they find so refreshing.

Capture

BREAKING: Obama Just Thumbed His Nose At Congress As Iran Nuke Deal Draws Talk Of ‘War’

In making an early morning announcement at the White House about the nuclear agreement just reached with Iran, President Obama spoke out of both sides of his mouth in referring to congressional review of the deal that is sure to be hotly debated and vigorously contested.

On the one hand, according to a Washington Post transcript of the president’s remarks, Obama said, “I welcome a robust debate in Congress on this issue and I welcome scrutiny of the details of this agreement.” Then, within seconds of that “welcoming” statement, Obama threw down the presidential gauntlet, adding, “I will veto any legislation that prevents the successful implementation of this deal.”

So, Obama is looking forward to “robust debate” on Capitol Hill that will, in his mind, be moot and meaningless, because no matter what lawmakers conclude about the Iran deal, Obama will block their efforts to stop it. Congress, of course, could override a presidential veto and turn thumbs down to a deal that many in Washington and elsewhere are already condemning as a “nightmare” of “historic” proportion.

Politico notes that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — who has warned in the past that a deal with an untrustworthy and hostile Iran would be foolhardy — was quick to denounce the agreement that Obama praised. A statement from Netanyahu characterized the deal as “an historic mistake for the world.”

“Far-reaching concessions have been made in all areas that were supposed to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons capability. In addition, Iran will receive hundreds of billions of dollars with which it can fuel its terror machine and its expansion and aggression throughout the Middle East and across the globe,” he added.

Sen. Lindsey Graham — a GOP contender for the White House in 2016 — agrees with Netanyahu, declaring that the just-announced agreement between Iran and six world powers is “akin to declaring war on Israel and the Sunni Arabs.” Quoted in a post on BloombergView, the South Carolina lawmaker reacted strongly to details about the deal that have been emerging.

“My initial impression is that this deal is far worse than I ever dreamed it could be and will be a nightmare for the region, our national security and eventually the world at large,” according to the BloombergView post.

Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton tweeted that the deal is a “diplomatic Waterloo,” adding, “The deal is an absolute disaster.”

Weekly Standard Senior Writer and Fox News Contributor Stephen Hayes has been tweeting throughout the morning, offering his own assessment of the Iran deal as well as reaction from key lawmakers. Hayes notes that the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes, contends that “Obama admin Iran claims at odds w/US intel community assessments.”

Hayes also quotes GOP Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas regarding sanctions relief promised to Iranian officials closely tied to terror and the deaths of American forces in the Middle East. Writes Hayes of criticism from Cotton: “‘They have blood of hundreds of American soldiers on their hands’ & we’re giving sanctions relief to Quds Force & Qassem Suleimani.”

As Western Journalism reported on Monday — prior to any announcement of a done deal with Iran — Sen. Cotton was warning of “open congressional rebellion” if such a bad deal were brought to Capitol Hill for debate.

Under a new law signed by President Obama earlier this year, Congress will have 60 days to review the details of the Iran nuke deal and either approve or disapprove. One can have little doubt that the congressional debate that President Obama just declared to be essentially a waste of time will prove intense and emotional, especially since the commander in chief has arrogantly commanded Congress to follow his lead.
