Prior to “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson’s suspension, the hit A&E reality series drew praise from none other than President Obama himself.

In an interview with People magazine, which hits newsstands Friday, Obama called the “Duck Dynasty” family a “pretty fun bunch.”

Obama was responding to a question as to whether he would rather spend a day with the “Duck Dynasty” crew or Kanye West.

“The ‘Duck Dynasty’ family seems like a pretty fun bunch, so I can see how that would be pretty fun. Kanye’s music is outstanding, though. I’ve got a lot of his stuff on my iPad. If it was a concert, then I might not mind listening to him,” he said.

Robertson, the patriarch of A&E’s embattled reality program, was put on indefinite hiatus Thursday following his comments regarding homosexuality published in a GQ magazine article.

    Oh so I guess ‘Phil Robertson’s’ comments are okay now since the President of the United States thinks they are a fun bunch. People, they are actors the show is scripted! This is all a huge joke and marketing ploy. Personally, it disgusts me. But what do you expect of the States right now?

    Thanks for that valuable insight, Jed Clampett. Fitting name for the god damn hillbilly nonsense you just spewed. Might have been able to take the comment seriously if it had been at all spelled correctly. Is a pedafile usually kept in the file cabinet?

    Phil Robertson is right.Most ffaagggots are pedafiles and rapeist and just sickos.I guess these sick sexual degenerates cant handle the truth that theyre sick vile unaccepted freaks.
