Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson on Tuesday ripped into Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris and her plan to fix America’s health care system.
“We have been given — contrary to what Kamala Harris said — she says, ‘Elect me and everything’s free!’” Robertson said during an interview on Fox Business. “‘Look! Everybody can have their own health care, the government is going to finance the whole thing! It’s not going to cost but $30 trillion. I’m offering you the greatest deal you ever had. Elect me and everything will be free!’”
Host Neil Cavuto noted that Harris planned to finance her Medicare-for-All plan by taxing Americans who have been “getting away with financial murder.”
“What I’m saying is that, Kamala, I already have health care,” Robertson said. “It’s given to me by God. Eternal health care. I’m guaranteed to be raised from the dead. I have life and immortality given to me by God through Jesus.”
“People get sick on Earth,” Cavuto pushed back.
“The temporary reprieve is not worth it,” Robertson said. “I’m telling her, I have eternal health care and it’s free.”
According to Robertson, he “never needed” health care for the first 50 years of his life.
He later claimed that President Donald Trump has never lied.
“A man that talks a lot like the president of the United States, he’s going to make some mistakes,” Robertson insisted. “I’m just saying the news media, according to Jesus, the evil one is the father of murder — that kind of fills in the blanks on why we’re such a murderous nation all the way down to killing our sons and daughters in our mothers’ wombs.”
“And he’s the father of lies,” he added. “I’ve never seen the extent of this kind of lying coming out of the news media. I’ve never seen anything like it since I’ve been on the Earth.”
“But you don’t see it out of the president?” Cavuto pressed.
“I would say Donald Trump is not a liar,” Robertson remarked.
