Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson has joined Ted Cruz on the campaign trail and as expected, it’s not looking too pretty.

Robertson took to the stage this week and began a long, drawn out speech about the importance of God in government, despite that whole separation of church and state thing. Robertson hardly mentioned the candidate he was campaigning for, but managed to compare Cruz to deceased Supreme Court Judge Antonin Scalia.

“The strength of this nation will not be this Constitution, but the laws of God that the Constitution is based on. You get rid of God, you get him out and keep him from being your anchor — when you start allowing men to determine what is right, what is wrong, what is good, what is evil. You let men do it and they do not vet it with through this book.”
