Liberals Rage on Twitter After Cruz Compliments Duck Commander Phil Robertson with UN Ambassador Joke


Liberals lost their collective minds online Friday after Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz suggested in jest that Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson would be an ideal candidate for U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Stumping for Cruz Friday morning at a campaign rally in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, ahead of Saturday’s voting, the Robertson family patriarch spoke in-depth about the U.S. Constitution, the Bible, and Thomas Jefferson.

Robertson, an evangelical Christian, implored South Carolina voters to “vote Godly” by supporting Cruz and resisting candidates like Hillary Clinton and democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders.

“Just for a thought experiment, imagine for a second, Phil Robertson as Ambassador to the United Nations,” Cruz joked after thanking Robertson for the complimentary speech.

Cruz then jokingly asked, “How much would you pay to see the Russian Ambassador’s face when Phil says, ‘What is wrong with you people?’”

Cruz also stated: “There is a reason why he terrifies the mainstream media.”

Immediately, Cruz’s lighthearted quip was shared as to indicate that he does not have the judgment to lead the country.

“Ted Cruz thinks ‘Duck Dynasty’ star Phil Robertson would make an excellent United Nations ambassador,” wrote entertainment industry outlet TheWrap.

Meanwhile, leftwing CNN posted a similar headline on Twitter sharing Cruz’s words out of context.

Others took to Twitter to share mockery and hostility over the joke:
