“Duck Dynasty” stars Jase and Missy Robertson responded to a variety of political and cultural issues during an interview with Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo on Wednesday, with Missy Robertson decrying the nation’s nasty political climate.
After Bartiromo explained that are some Americans who are unwilling to accept or understand that Donald Trump is the president, referencing comedian Kathy Griffin’s now-infamous bloody, decapitated head flap, Missy Robertson had plenty to say.
“It’s not something that you want your children to see and grow up seeing. I go back to kindgerten rules,” she said. “You learn in kindergarten, at a very young age, to share, to let someone else go first, to understand that there are winners and losers and then here we are as adults not understanding that role again — and then choosing to let our children watch this and talk about this with them in a negative way to get them all pumped up about it.”
And she wasn’t done there. Robertson said that the collective paradigm encompassing the negative behaviors that have been on display “goes against our principles … in middle America,” adding that kindness to others is a central value that’s being ignored.

Her husband Jase Robertson also spoke about last week’s attack on Republican Rep. Steve Scalise, who continues to recover after being shot during a baseball practice last Wednesday along with a congressional staffer and two Capitol Police officers.
“It’s sad to see something like that,” he said, decrying the fact that “there’s a few [people] crazy or evil enough to do something stupid like that.” In the end, he said the event has brought people together in his community, which is part of Scalise’s district.
“It’s nice to see everyone rally together,” Jase Robertson said. “You just hate that it takes something like that.”
