Mr. Speaker! The star of Duck Dynasty, Willie Robertson!
Okay, only President Obama gets a formal introduction like that at tonight’s State of the Union address. But make no mistake, one of the stars of Duck Dynasty WILL be there!
Willie and his flag bandana are being brought to Washington as the official guest of Congressman Vance McAllister of Louisiana.
Which makes Willie’s attendance that much more interesting.
Jason became the first active, openly gay male pro athlete in a U.S. team sport last year.
So will Willie and Jason cross the aisle tonight and exchange a handshake of peace?
Doubtful. But we expect the Prez to have plenty to say about the ongoing fight for LGBT rights in this country. And we’ll be watching Willie to see what his reaction is!
