Duck Dynasty's Willie Robertson: House bid 'news to me'

Robertson, 41, whose family made their fortune by creating products for duck hunters, was less tight-lipped about his potential 2016 presidential pick. The Creole State native told “The Five” hosts, “We’ll see who comes out. I’m curious to know about Jindal. That’s my guy, Louisiana.”

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) has not declared his intention to run for president in the next election.

Asked whether he thinks Americans across the country are divided, Robertson replied, “I see people more together — I see them liking ‘Duck Dynasty,’ so that brings the country together. It really does because this show — it’s funny, it breaks through all the demographics, it breaks through a lot of stuff, and people see things even if they are not like how we are as a family, they can strive to be like that and say 'I wish we could sit down more just at a table and have dinner together,' and I don’t see it as much in my travels as I do on the news.”
