“Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson, who initially endorsed Ted Cruz, said on Thursday that the Texas senator should “swallow” his pride and endorse Donald Trump.
In the aftermath of Cruz’s speech Wednesday at the Republican National Convention where he was booed off the stage for not endorsing Trump, Robertson said in an interview on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends: “I mean give me a break Ted. Go ahead and endorse the man. I mean you lost, he won.”
“I think Cruz is a terrific guy, strict constitutionalist, he’s not the most bubbly guy I’ve ever run across, if you understand what I’m saying,” Robertson said. “I love that dude but all the guys who lost and gals, they all need to swallow their pride and say the people, the Republican Party has said Donald Trump is the man we want in the White House.”
