Most people leave 20 percent tips when they go out to eat. “Duck Dynasty” star Willie Robertson left a 100 percent tip while visiting the nation’s capital — on a $5,000 bill, TMZ reported.

While in town for the president’s State of the Union address on Jan. 28, the A&E star went out to Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in D.C. with Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Sen. Ted Cruz and a host of other well-known conservatives, TMZ said.

When the bill came, Mr. Robertson picked up the tab and left the enormous tip, TMZ reported. However, Mediabistro’s TVNewser claims their sources told them that it was Mr. Hannity who paid the tab and the large tip.

“See? Republicans don’t have any problems redistributing wealth,” TMZ joked.

The restaurant, which normally closes at 11 p.m., stayed open until 2 a.m. to accommodate the group’s post-State of the Union discussion.
