The last time "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson delivered a message to U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), it was to offer his unwavering support.
Now that the Republican presidential primary is over, he's switched his allegiance to GOP nominee Donald Trump. The small business owner turned reality television star said Thursday he thinks the Texas senator should do the same.
"If I had been Ted—I mean, give me a break, Ted. Go ahead and endorse the man," he told FOX News Channel's FOX and Friends Thursday morning. "I mean, you lost, he won.
"I think Cruz is a terrific guy, a strict constitutionalist. He's not the most bubbly guy I've ever run across, if you understand what I'm sayin'.
"I love that dude, but all the guys who lost—and gals—they all need to swallow their pride and say the people—the Republican Party—has said Donald Trump is the man we want in the White House."
Robertson was also asked to weigh in on Ohio Gov. John Kasich's boycott of the GOP national convention. The Duck Commander patriarch said he's still learning about politics, but still had a valuable message to all of the former presidential candidates.
"They need to learn how to forgive each other, and let's move on," he said. "Get over it and let's move on."
