When President Barack Obama kicks back on Air Force One, he reportedly relaxes by watching episodes of “Duck Dynasty.”

The wildly popular A&E show is in danger of being canceled after “Duck Dynasty” family patriarch Phil Robertson made remarks critical of homosexuality that sparked a firestorm. But Christian Broadcasting Network reporter David Brody told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly Friday that President Obama once pulled Robertson’s son Willie and daughter-in-law Korie aside at an event to express his love of the show.

“Our White House correspondent Jennifer Wishon actually invited some of the Robertson clan to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner earlier this year,” Brody told Kelly. “And during that event actually the Robertsons were taken backstage to meet President Obama, where President Obama at that point said, ‘I love the show. I watch it on Air Force One all the time.’ Gave them some cuff links and said, ‘Hey, I really appreciate you.’ That was a private conversation that now has bubbled up.”
