Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson on Tuesday lashed out at Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris after she proposed a Medicare-like plan for every American.
In an interview on Fox Business, Robertson argued that liberals are trying to replace God with government.
“We have been given — contrary to what Kamala Harris said — she says, ‘Elect me and everything’s free!'” Robertson complained. “‘Look! Everybody can have their own health care, the government is going to finance the whole thing! It’s not going to cost but $30 trillion. I’m offering you the greatest deal you ever had. Elect me and everything will be free!'”
Host Neil Cavuto noted that Harris planned to finance Medicare for All by taxing people who have been “getting away with financial murder.”
“What I’m saying is that, Kamala, I already have health care,” Robertson opined. “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.”
“People get sick on Earth,” Cavuto pointed out.
“The temporary reprieve is not worth it,” Robertson snapped. “I’m telling her, I have eternal health care and it’s free.”
According to Robertson, he “never needed” health care for the first 50 years of his life.
The “Duck Commander” went on to insist that President Donald Trump never lies.
“A man that talks a lot like the president of the United States, he’s going to make some mistakes,” Robertson insisted. “I’m just saying the news media, according to Jesus, the evil one is the father of murder — that kind of fills in the blanks on why we’re such a murderous nation all the way down to killing our sons and daughters in our mothers’ wombs.”
“And he’s the father of lies,” he added. “I’ve never seen the extent of this kind of lying coming out of the news media. I’ve never seen anything like it since I’ve been on the Earth.”
“But you don’t see it out of the president?” Cavuto pressed.
“I would say Donald Trump is not a liar,” Robertson remarked.

GOP in a panic about what to do with Steve King as Democrats can’t wait to face him in the election
On Saturday, MSNBC's Garrett Haake broke down the nightmare situation Republicans are facing with Rep. Steve King (R-IA), who has faced outrage for years of white supremacist comments, and more recently suggested that rape and incest might be a good thing for society.
"What more recourse do Republicans have?" said host David Gura. "We had this cycle of condemnation in the past after comments were made. He was stripped of committee assignments. Is there more Republicans can do vis-a-vis Steve King?"
Trump’s economic advisers baffled over how to hold off recession that his trade war set it in motion: report
According to a report from ABC, Donald Trump's economic advisers are baffled about how to stop what appears to be a recession coming before the 2020 election after his trade war upset an already teetering worldwide economy.
With the report noting that Trump had hoped to run on a strong economy as part of his 2020 re-election strategy, warnings from economists that a recession may arrive before then has White House officials in a panic.
"The financial markets signaled the possibility of a U.S. recession this week, sending a jolt of anxiety to investors, companies and consumers. That's on top of concerns over Trump's plans to impose punishing tariffs on goods from China and word from the United Kingdom and Germany that their economies are shrinking," the report states, adding, "Trump advisers fear a weakened economy would hurt him with moderate Republican and independent voters who have been willing to give him a pass on some his incendiary policies and rhetoric."
Race to remember Berlin Wall victims, 30 years on
Where guard towers and barbed wire once stood, runners pounded the 100-mile (160 kilometer) path along the former Berlin Wall this weekend in a race with victims of the Cold War relic at its heart.
On Saturday at 6:00 am (0400 GMT), around 500 runners, started the 8th edition of the Berlin Wall Race, ahead of the 30th anniversary of the Wall's demise this November.
With weary legs, most runners will jog through Saturday night, aiming to reach the city centre stadium which doubles as both start and finish, in the early hours of Sunday.
The race is part ultra-marathon, part tribute to those who died trying to cross the Wall, which the East German communist regime hastily erected in 1961 and stood for 28 years.
