Sure as shooting, Gov. Bobby Jindal is adding reality TV guest to his resume.
The governor spent a day filming with the Robertsons, who made a fortune on duck calls and star in A&E’s “Duck Dynasty.” The show’s next season premieres June 11, the day after the governor’s 43rd birthday.
“The Robertson Family epitomizes what it means to be a homegrown Louisiana business. We are proud of the economic boom Louisiana is seeing, and a large part of this is due to the expansion of individuals who run small businesses, like the Duck Commanders do. My family and I had so much fun hanging out with the Robertsons, and participating in the filming of Duck Dynasty was a highlight,” Jindal said in a prepared statement.
Earlier this year, Jindal defended “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson after the reality cable television star characterized gays as sinners and black people as happy, crooning cotton-picking laborers before the Civil Rights movement.
