Phil Robertson famously endorsed Roy Moore during the past election. Now Duck Dynasty fans are wondering if Phil will stand behind his Republican Senate pick amid multiple sexual assault accusations.
Phil Robertson Endorses Roy Moore
Phil Robertson has been very clear about his endorsement of Roy Moore. Moore recently won the Alabama Senate race. He is known as the “Ten Commandments” judge, and Phil has called him a fellow man of faith.
Phil publicly stated, “[Moore] judged with a good understanding of the Constitution and the law, but he also understands natural law and who gave us our rights to begin with, Almighty God. Roy Moore will stand up for truth and what’s right, no matter who opposes him, and that is sorely needed in Washington DC. I fully endorse his run for the Senate and pray for he and his family.”
However, fans are wondering if Phil will now make a second public statement, following the multiple accusations that have come forward against Moore. Multiple women have come forward and recounted that Roy Moore initiated sexual contact with them when they were teenagers. One was as young as 14 while another was 16.
The Republican National Committee has withdrawn from a fundraising agreement they had with the Roy Moore campaign. Moore is set to compete in a special election on December 12th. It seems many Republicans believe the women over their candidate. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell put it clearly when he said, “I believe the women, yes.”
Will Phil Robertson Address The Controversy?
The question on Duck Dynasty, and now Phil In the Woods‘ fans’ minds is, “will Phil address this controversy?” In the past, Phil has been unapologetic when it comes to his own scandals.
Most recently he said he wasn’t surprised by the Harvey Weinstein scandal- a similar story. Phil said, “We’ve said for years that the Hollywood media has been controlled by the Evil One and now some Hollywood mogul is trying to breed all the chicks and it gets covered up and everybody is shocked!”
However, Phil then added that Weinstein can be forgiven. He said, “But you know what, we don’t need to forget something: Weinstein can be forgiven. Don’t forget that…I’ve had some pretty raunchy sins in my first 28 years on the Earth. Grace is far better than law. Grace says all your past sins can be removed and never counted against you again.”
Will Phil a lot the same type of understanding to Roy Moore? Or will he call him out for his accusations? We shall see.
