Duck Dynasty Star ‘Excited to Meet Ruth’s Chris’

Willie “Boss Hog” Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame probably disappointed a few political reporters tonight. He was as even-keeled as last year’s star guest, Ted Nugent, was bombastic. NRO caught up with the reality star as he and the congressman who invited him, Vance McAllister (R., La.), headed from the House chamber to Statuary Hall. 

“It was good,” he says of the speech. “Thought it was very cool to be here and be a part of this.”

His favorite part was “just the whole thing,” he says. “It was neat, I’ve never seen anything like it.”

And with the skill of a seasoned politico, the star deflected a question about whom he was most excited to meet in Washington.  

“I’m excited to meet Ruth’s Chris,” he says with a laugh, referring to the popular steakhouse. “I’m starving.”
