Appearing on Kilmeade and Friends on Fox Talk Radio, Willie Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” fame stressed that Jindal hasn’t yet made up his mind about a run but said Jindal is his man if he enters the 2016 field. (Tune in here at the 12:41 mark to listen)
“He’s got the values (and) the intelligence to do it, and I’d love to see him run,” Robertson said. “I’m the kind of guy who, I like a lot of smart people. That guy is one of the smartest people I’ve ever met.”
Jindal recently introduced Robertson at an event in Iowa at which Jindal joked that Robertson would make a “great running mate” for president — but only if he was willing to play second fiddle.
“Sure, but as vice president — I assume that’s what you’re asking — not the other way around,” Jindal joked when asked about a Jindal-Robertson ticket.
Jindal notably made an appearance on Duck Dynasty last year. He’s frequently hyped the Louisiana-set reality show, and even presented Robertson with the Governor’s Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence.
