Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson on Chicago

SHARE Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson on Chicago

By now, you’ve probably read “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson’s comments about homosexuality.

Those comments appear in the January issue of GQ, and A&E, which airs “Duck Dynasty,” released a statement yesterday expressing disappointment after reading them. Oh, and the channel also suspended him from the show indefinitely.

But Robertson’s comments didn’t stop at homosexuality. He also blamed Chicago for his vote for Mitt Romney in 2012.

Here’s his reasoning, as it appears in GQ:

If I’m lost at three o’clock in a major metropolitan area … I ask myself: Where would I rather be trying to walk with my wife and children? One of the guys who’s running for president is out of Chicago, Illinois, and the other one is from Salt Lake City, Utah. Where would I rather be turned around at three o’clock in the morning? I opted for Salt Lake City. I think it would be safer.

As GQ noted, Romney is from Boston, not Salt Lake City.
