In a speech to the Values Voter Summit on Saturday, reality TV star Phil Robertson recounted a meeting with Donald Trump in which he told the GOP presidential nominee that he would baptize him on camera to get “God on our side.”
“If you really want to see something wild, film it, Donald, film me baptizing you,” the Duck Dynasty patriarch recalled telling Trump. “The left-wingers will literally go crazy and the evangelicals will swarm you like a mighty thrall because then we would know we have God on our side.”
Robertson also told attendees to “read the Old Testament and see how many different people God worked through to accomplish His purpose.”
“Better a man who sticks his foot in his mouth every once in a while than a woman who pours out lies,” he said.
