Willie and Korie Robertson took a break from filming Duck Dynasty to receive the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute’s annual Angels in Adoption award at the Reagan Building.
Willie and Korie Robertson adopted their son, Will, when he was an infant.
Clad in jeans and his trademark American flag bandana, Willie Robertson – CEO of the family-owned business – displayed the charm that made the Robertsons TV stars.
“I really didn’t know what exactly this was, I’ll admit,” he told the crowd.
Korie Robertson gave him his marching orders about the trip to D.C.: “You don’t have to wear a suit, food will be free, and we’re talking about adoption.”
Willie Robertson also gave advices on the shutdown: “I understand what it’s like – you should try to get Uncle Si to make duck calls in the duck call room. It’s probably harder running the government of the United States.”
