Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard may have just subtly endorsed a presidential candidate. And to no one’s surprise, they seem to have chosen Donald Trump.
Dillard retweeted a quote from Pastor Ronnie Floyd, who, as The Inquisitr points out, sits on Donald Trump’s religious advisory board. Floyd is Dillard and Duggar’s local pastor in Arkansas, noted Dillard, and they watch his weekly sermons even while they are on a mission in Central America.

Floyd simply urges parishioners to vote, not to choose a specific candidate, but his alliance as an evangelical Christian isn’t hard to guess. Interestingly, however, he’s choosing to keep specific politics out of his sermons. He tweeted: “I give my full and complete endorsement to Jesus Christ. My 100% trust is in God alone, our Sovereign King.” So let’s take that as a small chance that he, and by extension the Duggars, could still go for Clinton.
It’s easy to forget just how political the Duggars really are. Before his molestation scandals broke, Josh Duggar was a lobbyist for the Family Research Council, which rallies against LGBT rights, abortion and pornography — the type of strict conservative values we’ve seen throughout Trump’s campaign. (Of course, Josh was later sent to rehab for a “pornography addiction.”) Family patriarch Jim Bob Duggar was a representative for the state of Arkansas from 1999 to 2002. But does that mean we should listen to their political advice? Of course not — not theirs or anyone else’s. Educate yourself before Nov. 8.
