In a People magazine interview about to hit newsstands on Friday, President Obama said the "Duck Dynasty" family seemed like a "pretty fun bunch."
"The Duck Dynasty family seems like a pretty fun bunch, so I can see how that would be pretty fun," he responded when asked who'd he'd rather spend the day with — the "Duck Dynasty" family or Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, The Hill reported.
"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 added.
The comment was made before a GQ interview made headlines this week, in which "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson spoke about his Christianity and his views toward homosexuals.
"Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men," he told GQ in its upcoming issue. "Don't be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers — they won't inherit the kingdom of God. Don't deceive yourself. It's not right."
Shortly after the interview made headlines, A&E announced it was suspending the patriarch indefinitely.
