Leading evangelist Franklin Graham has defended "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson from liberal backlash after the latter issued an invocation at the April 9 NASCAR race and called on God to put a "Jesus man in the White House."
During his pre-race prayer at Texas Motor Speedway's Duck Commander 500, the 69-year-old reality TV star asked the Lord to help Americans repent in the name of Jesus and also politicized his prayer by asking God to put a Christian in the White House.
