Skip to comments.NBC: Inviting 'Duck Dynasty' Stars to the State of the Union Not 'Dignified' (Video)

Willie and Korie Robertson attended the recent State of the Union speech -- and stole the show, with dozens of members of both parties meeting with and talking to the classy and entrepreneurial couple before the main event.
But not everyone was happy with the presence decent country folk in their nasty world of politics.
During NBC's live State of the Union coverage Tuesday night, chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd sneered at Duck Dynasty stars Willie and Korie Robertson being Republican guests at the event:
"...after the shooting with Gabby Giffords and for a couple of State of the Unions in a row....There was more of a dignified feeling about the guests that you would invite. Boy, you can tell things are a lot different now, when you're inviting Duck Dynasty stars."
Apparently Todd did not find it "undignified" that Obama and several Democrat members of Congress invited illegal aliens to the speech with them.

Those NBC folks sure know how to keep digging the hole deeper.
Who would have been dignified?
Manly Maddow, the Morning Schmo, drunk Matthews, Mr. Ed, Muslces O’Donnell perhaps?
Not dignified enough for the SOTU? Are they talking about Sheila Jackson Lee?
No, we wouldn’t like true Americans, and Christians to boot, to be part of the American process.
Kissing Obama’s butt for the last 6 years is dignified?
Unbelievable, these people get more absurd every day. I’ve never seen a single episode of Duck Dynasty but they look like a perfectly nice couple to me. From what I’ve read and heard they are decent, smart, hard working people. The whole family.
And what does Gabby Giffords have to do with this? I’m sorry she was shot by a creep but taking away the rights of law abiding gun owners would not prevent a single gun tragedy and being a victim does not make one dignified.
Oh, speaking of undignified, did these liberals who are so concerned with dignity see that sloppy, lecturing, clomping linebacker of a first lady holding court?
Once they allowed the Mooch into the building the bar was in the gutter.
Illegals are more NBC’s style and not tax paying Americans.
Chuck Todd can go to hell.
Giffords was not shot by a conservative. She was shot by an extreme left winger. I have never heard an undignified word from Willie Robertson. Let me give it my best shot, though: GFY NBC.
Yes, most of the shootings are committed by left wingers. The media fails to mention that. She was mentioned in the article and I was just wondering why being a victim of gun violence automatically makes one dignified. And I second your GFY NBC.
A ew years back they invited Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne.
Korie is just a stunningly beautiful woman, and just like Sarah Palin, they just can’t stand it! And, they are terribly threatened by the notion of beautiful women like the Robertson ladies being attracted to and actually marrying a bunch of rednecks that shoot (and eat) animals. If you were to list the top 10 things that drive liberals absolutely nuts, Duck Dynasty does ‘em all! And that’s why we love it ;-)
“Dignified?” NBC? They don’t even know what the word means.
At least they are not ILLEGAL ALIENS.
Exactly. Certainly more dignified than having JayZ and entourage party it up in the situation room.
Skateboarding in the White House is uber dignified, too...
And they wonder why they are least trusted news source.
So you believe that Willie Robertson and Korie Robertson are undignified?
I don’t know why these nutcases are allowed to call what they do “news”
Anti-white liberal bigotry.
No problem. I was just checking. I think Willie could tuck his shirt in, but he probably wants to maintain his image. I enjoy the family’s rebellion against stuffy, ridiculous, pretentious people.
Southern man don’t need Chuck Todd around
I’ll make this observation. When Jefferson stopped the entire practice....he was making a brilliant decision. It’s a boring speech which is mostly just political chatter and worthless. When this starts back up in 1913....it’s for dramatic opera. The twenty or so SoU speeches I’ve seen in my life....are all mostly worthless. I think at least half the adult population now realizes this and skip it for the most part.
So, this brings me to my prediction. We are starting to see this trend of guests being important. I’ll predict within ten years...we start to have political folks “game” this event. The Beber kid? Yeah, he’ll be invited. NFL players, NBA washed-up quarterbacks, Yankeees Third Basemen, former wrestlers, matadores, reality show lumberjacks, Amish Mafia figures, and even Hollywood elite. We will begin to watch the freaky SoU speech....more for the guests...than the President’s worthless speech. Maybe this is the only way that the speech survives on...making it a reality show.
Oh yeah. That is so very dignified.
Allowing your picture to be taken with Amnesty loving Paul Ryan is UNDIGNIFIED!
Duck Dynasty is a hell of a lot more dignified than Obama and his band of thugs!
I can think of upwards of 537 individuals who attended and whose presence detracted from the dignity of the Capitol far more than Willie Robertson.
I would have rather seen Phil there than Willie but I heard he was busy cleaning his shotgun.
And talk about a successful small business!
NBC...NoBody Cares news network.
More people will see you get your teeth cleaned than will see NBC news.
However any Rapper or NBA “Star” would be just fine.
