A few weeks ago, Duck Dynasty’s Robertson family came out as Donald Trump supporters. Now, it has been revealed that one Robertson has actually been close to The Donald for years.
A few years ago, Jase Robertson was stunned when he was kicked out of a Trump hotel by an obnoxious employee. Then, however, The Donald stepped in…
“I was here in New York a couple of years ago, and I get escorted out of of the Trump hotel that I was staying in…But a guy, when I asked him where the bathroom is, he looked at me, and thought, ‘Right this way,’ and he grabbed my arm, took me outside and pointed at Central Park and said, ‘Have a nice day,'” Jase recounted, according to The Political Insider.
Trump was appalled when he heard what happened, and he immediately called Jase to personally apologize. The two became fast friends, and Jase ended up becoming particularly close to Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr.
“We actually really hit it off because he has a heart for kids with the same condition as Mia,” Jase remembered, referring to his daughter’s cleft lip and palate. “I had no idea of that at the time, and when I learned that and saw what Willie did, I was like, ‘Well, anyone who has a heart for kids with cleft lip and palate is a positive on my list.”
Now, Jase is a proud supporter of Donald Trump for the presidential election. We’re glad to see two of our favorite families working together so well!
