‘Duck Dynasty’ Star Phil Robertson: I Don’t Need Health Care Because I Have ‘Immortality Given to Me by God’
Robertson told Fox Business Network that publicly funded health care is useless because he will live forever in God's embrace.
Because we watch Trumpland TV so you don’t have to, today we watched Duck Dynasty emperor Phil Robertson poo-poo the idea of government-provided health care because, in his estimation, there is no need for medical services in the physical world. After all, according to Robertson, he’s guaranteed “eternal health care” given to him by God.
I already have health care. 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 Christ... The temporary reprieve is not worth it. I'm telling [Kamala Harris], I have eternal health care, and it's free! Doctors can give you a little temporary reprieve, but they cannot save you from physical death. The doctors who treat you, they die, too.
Fox Business Network host Neil Cavuto, to his credit, pushed back by noting that “people need health care.”
“I didn’t have health care for 50 years,” Robertson replied. And he apparently doesn’t see much see use for it now, either.
