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.
Bringing celebrities to the SOTU is nothing new. After all, Michelle Obama is bringing Jason Collins as one of her dates tonight!
Which makes Willie’s attendance that much more interesting.
We doubt you need a reminder but Willie is the son of Phil Robertson, who famously lashed out against gays in a GQ interview last year.
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!
