President Obama allows his daughters only a limited amount of television viewing, and Duck Dynasty is one of the shows they are allowed to watch.
According to the Business Insider, the Obamas limit their daughters’ cell phone usage to weekends, limit computer usage to what is necessary for homework, and restrict television viewing. They are very attentive to what their daughters are exposed to and who they are exposed to, as well.
So it says something about Duck Dynasty that it is a show the Obamas are comfortable with.
CBN’s Beltway Buzz blog says the president is big fan and that he personally told Willie and Korie Robertson that, “He loves the show and watches it on Air Force One.”
Korie said: “I know the Obama’s are very particular about what they let their girls watch on TV so if our show is one they find acceptable, that’s really great.”
Willie is the son of Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson. On December 18th A&E “indefinitely” suspended Phil from the show for answering a GQ reporter’s questions about his faith honestly. Outraged progressives have painted Robertson as a bigot.
In an interview conducted before the firestorm over Robertson, Obama told People magazine he would rather spend a day with the Duck Dynasty cast than with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.
