Duck Dynasty Star Ducks Barbara Walters Interview--to Go Hunting
CNS News ^ | December 17, 2013 | Eric Schreiner

Posted on 12/17/2013 12:07:04 PM PST by rightwingintelligentsia

Many celebrities look forward to a Barbara Walters interview. Not so with Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson. He skipped the interview to go duck hunting.

Radar Online is reporting that Robertson bailed on Walter’s ‘Most Fascinating People’ interview last month for the ABC network.

Walters talked with other members of the Robertson family, and Phil’s wife, Miss Kay, reportedly told her that the 67-year old founder of Duck Commander would rather shoot ducks than do the interview.

Walters says on-air that she has, “never been superseded by a duck before.”

She knows all about ducking her way to the top.

He didn’t show up for NFL training camp for the same reason - he chose hunting over NFL football. (this was before the really big bucks came to the NFL).

They should just put her decrepit over-rated keester in a box and plant it and be done with it. She has no meaning in this world any more.

That should have given Walters A CLUE - time to retire.

Barbara WaWa definitely cannot compete with a good duck hunt.

I’d skip a requested Walters interview to watch paint dry.

She wanted to ask him; “If you could be a duck, what kind of duck would you be?”

I don’t blame Phil for skipping that one.

That and sleeping with married men.

Anyway, if she had one iota of real reporter in her, she would have gone hunting with the guy.

This aritcle makes it sound like it was only Phil, but not so. Jase bailed also.

But the family tells TheBlaze that there was “no disrespect intended.”

Family spokesman and the eldest Robertson, Alan, said some of the family was in New York
in November for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and to film Walters’ ”The 10 Most
Fascinating People of 2013,” among other things, but that Phil and Jase didn’t come on the trip.

“They simply didn’t want to miss three days of hunting to do everything we had planned,”
Alan wrote in an email to TheBlaze. “As a family, we were very honored to be recognized on the
[Walters] list and there was no disrespect intended by us.”

“When it comes to Dad and Jase, ducks trump just about anything from late November to
late January, it’s just the way they roll!”
END SNIP

What Baba should do is have Si Robertson on.

No.. Forget that. Even he has more inteligence than she does. He would make her look like a bigger fool than he pretends to be.

That'd be some TV worth watching...

Sarah Palin could have used this sort of judgment.

Walters was on Imus this morning and he asked her if she had an affair with Fidel Castro while she spent that week with him. She was not amused. I laughed my ass off.

I’m no hunter or fisherman but know that great conditions for both don’t happen all of the time but TV shows do.

She would have poo-poohed his Christianity in some way anyway.

Why give the old coot the opportunity.

Mrs. henkster’s sister scheduled her wedding on opening day of deer season. I bagged a small but nice 8-pointer.

LOL. Maybe they could give her the spray bottle of doe urine (sorry, Korie, but that was a funny bit).

Either Sarah did not get good advice a couple years ago, or she was hardheaded, and refused the advice given. I like Sarah, and she will likely become an elected or appointed official in the future due to her broad understanding of how government works. Sarah damaged her own brand repeatedly by going off message too many times, or allowing herself to be seen doing silly or frivolous stuff too often. Ted Cruz, so far, is much more disciplined and consistent. The average voter needs their politician to behave in a consistent predictable way. The Duck Dynasty actor takes advantage of a perk that comes with growing older, saying or doing exactly what you want to say or do.

This is even more delicious. “no disrespect intended”, he he he.

Baba Wawa should have her people check with Robertson’s people to clear their schedule way in advance.

I imagine Walters is much more annoyed than she is letting on—Doesn’t this hick know who she is?

My sky-high opinion of Phil just ticked a bit higher.

Palin lives under a microscope because the media fears her. No one is perfect. It’s high time these phony media types get it smashed right back in their face. The commie old hag wah-wah should leave the stage.

“never been superseded by a duck before.”

That would be “superseded by a DEAD duck”, Babs.

I’d rather be sitting up in my deer stand, freezing my butt off than be in a nice warm studio getting interviewed by Barbara Walters. So I understand where they’re coming from....
