Two members of the Duck Dynasty reality show received a surprise request during April’s White House Correspondents Dinner.
Jennifer Wishon of the CBN Beltway Buzz blog says she attended the Dinner along with Willie and Korie Robertson from the hit A&E show. Wishon says the pair were called away by a White House representative at one point during the night and didn’t reappear for 45 minutes.
Turns out they were getting a personal greeting from President Barack Obama.
Wow, that’s great!” I said. “What did you talk to him about?”
“He said he loves the show and watches it on Air Force One,” Willie said.
“I know the Obama’s are very particular about what they let their girls watch on TV so if our show is one they find acceptable, that’s really great!” Korie said.
After the couple took their seats Korie replaced Willie’s cufflinks with the pair he had just received from the commander in chief.
