"Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson is throwing his support behind presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for reasons other than politics.
"The issue in America, in my opinion, is much larger than presidents, prime ministers, kings," the "Duck Dynasty" patriarch said in an appearance on FOX News' "Hannity" this week. "The issue before us, in my opinion, is a spiritual one. I don't think it's a political fix. Politicians can help."
Robertson explained that he had supported Texas Senator Ted Cruz because he was a "Jesus man" and a "strict constitutionalist," saying he felt that Cruz would vet his decisions using the Bible. Although Trump was Robertson's second choice, he has said he would "enthusiastically" support him. The Duck Commander founder is believing that God will be the source of Trump's common sense. Asked if man's common sense comes from God, Robertson said of Trump, "I hope so in his case. I really do." more >>

With many shows ending their current season run, TV networks who air them have axed several shows in order to usher in new shows that, hopefully, will rake in more cash for the networks.
While it's true that fans of those that will be axed will surely be saddened, the network can't be blamed if it has to arrive at a decision of bringing them to the chopping board. After all, show business is still business, and those that don't serve the business will have to go.
