Duck Dynasty Star Gets 'Ugly,' Scott Baio Rips Hillary Clinton to Kick Off Republican National Convention

“Are you cheering because we’re ugly?” laughed Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson, kicking off primetime coverage of the 2016 Republican National Convention.

The conservative reality staple was joking about his looks — and the face of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump — in relation to their spouses, “intelligent wives who are much better looking than we are.” In addition to that parallel, Robertson noted he and Trump are both successful businessmen who’ve toplined hit reality programs, “though I flew commercial here,” he added.

Robertson also zinged “media experts” covering Trump’s ascendancy in the GOP primary race, adding that “it must be humbling to be so wrong about so much for so long.” He went on to note “they don’t know how to talk to folks like us,” people who “hunt, fish, pray and actually work for a living.”

When media types realize he’s from Louisiana, Robertson claimed, “they talk real slow and real loud.” Trump, meanwhile, “may not be politically correct,” but he “always tells you the truth as he sees it,” and that’s why the Duck Commander CEO believes “Donald Trump will have your back.”

Baio’s speech was short and sweet cutting, calling Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton a woman who feels she’s “entitled to the presidency,” while describing Trump as “a man doing this out of the goodness of his heart,” and who “says what he means. and means what he says.”

Baio’s final message to Convention-goers: “Let’s make America America again!”

    Key words, of course, being “as he sees it”.

    Bahahahahahahahahaha! Oh, wow. THAT is rich.

      There was so much wrong with both speeches. If truth can be seen in different ways, then it isn’t truth. How can anyone take this seriously?

      And for the record, I am from Middle America and I pray and that does not mean that I want Willie Robertson or Donald Trump speaking for me.

      Anyone else notice that he said Trump would have your back as long as you’re in business, military or are a cop? Guess that leaves Mexicans, Muslims, and unattractive women off the list.

        Same. I won’t argue that there’s people on the left that can be awfully condescending to those of us in the middle of the country, as that is indeed true. But people like Willie Robertson need to quit acting like they speak for all of Middle America, too. It’s like when Sarah Palin harped on years back about our part of the country being “real America”, as opposed to those “liberal elites” on the coasts (course, they sure didn’t mind sucking up to New York when they needed to exploit 9/11 for their own political gain, but hey). Newsflash: liberals and progressives live in MIddle America, too.

        Mmhm. Exactly.

      He has no concern for truth, as anyone else understands the concept. Whatever he says, as he sees it, is the truth.

      Read what his ghostwriter (Trump never wrote a book) says about that here:

    Personal politics aside, it just doesn’t bode well for your side if your representatives are a washed up 80’s sitcom stars, a reality TV guy, a guy best known for being on Dancing With The Stars and a failed politician who has to put his smart glasses on. None of them spoke about policies- they just basically spoke their tweets out loud.

    Trump does NOTHING out of the goodness of his heart. It’s all about him.

    I’ve been looking so forward to this freak show. You can’t make this stuff up! So glad you’re recapping, Slezak!

    It makes for good reality tv. Too bad it’s more reality than tv…

  6. Stephen Miller says:

    Scott Baio is by no stretch of the imagination a TV star at the present -time. He has not been a star for decades.And based, on his remarks last night, he appears to be fading fast and permanently.. Bye- bye Scottie.

    They’re not just scraping the bottom of the barrel to find people to speak at the RNC, they’ve gone through entire barrels just to get to this one. How sad is it they’ve gone from the likes of Clint Eastwood to Chachi as celebrity representatives of the GOP? Certainly there are bigger names who are GOP supporters but apparently none of them want to show their face any more.

    • Mary says:

      Correction they don’t want to show their faces for Trump. I bet other candidates would of had a better crop to choose from. Many of these wash up actors were hoping for 5 more minutes of fame, unfortunately they said nothing relevant so it was a waste.

    Opening with Duck Dynasty. Typical. The only celebrities that endorse Drumpf are fellow “reality” show characters. And they only people who will vote for this piece of trash are “reality” show viewers whose lives revolve around Kardasians, etc. You are all so sad and delusional.

  9. cienna says:

    Duck Dynasty no longer garners the high ratings it used to get.

    it is really sad Duck Dynasty’s last season. with all the garbage on tv it was enlightening to see a family such as the Robertsons on a reality show. I am really considering turning cable off its not worth it. all that is on is violence and perversion. in one television show you can see every one of the ten commandments not followed. whether you believe in ten commandments with any conscience or not they are the basis of human decency. as for trump being president hoorah for America. The minority specialist groups and Washington elites have taken from America for too long. GO TRUMP!!!! as for Ms. Clinton she thought she deserved to be president because of her gender and position in Washington. We showed her….. HUH…. take the money and run now……
