“Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson was at CPAC to accept a Defender of the First Amendment award, and during his acceptance speech took a few swipes at Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner.

“By the way, these are my church clothes,” said Robertson, who was dressed like, well, someone from “Duck Dynasty.” “I never got around to buying a suit, not yet. I’m 68.”

Robertson went on to tell the story of how he was forced to wear a suit in order to visit the House of Representatives. “Irregardless of me not being able to go on the floor of the House of Representatives without a suit on, according to old John Boehner,” he said, “Hey, John, I have my best clothes on!” (RELATED: Phil Robertson Advises GOP 2016 Candidates)

“Boehner, here’s a newsflash! Just make sure you pass good bills coming out of that House that affects my life and don’t worry about the clothes on their backs! Just pass good legislation! I’d feel better about you.”
