Texas Sen. [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] teasingly floated the idea of “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson serving as his ambassador to the United Nations Friday during a campaign event in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Cruz said, “You know what, there’s a reason [Robertson] terrifies the mainstream media. He says things you’re not supposed to say. He actually remembers who we are as Americans. And he speaks it with a joy, not with an anger, not with a hatred, with a joy in who we are.” (VIDEO: Duck Dynasty Patriarch Endorses Ted Cruz)
“Just for a thought experiment, imagine for a second Phil Robertson, ambassador to the United Nations,” Cruz suggested.
The crowd broke out in applause with the idea of UN Ambassador Robertson. Cruz continued, “How much would you pay to see the Russian ambassador’s face when Phil says, ‘What is wrong with you people?'”
Prior to Cruz taking the stage, Robertson introduced Cruz to the crowd.
