Jim Bob Duggar announced his run for state Senate on Friday, and now his son-in-law Derick Dillard has something to say about it. He acted quickly, leaving a comment not too long after the news broke, letting everyone know how he feels about his father-in-law’s big announcement.
For those who don’t know, Derick is married to one of Jim Bob and Michelle’s daughters, Jill. Jill and Derick have two kids together and have distanced themselves from the Duggars over the years. They have revealed that they weren’t fairly compensated for their time on the family’s TLC shows, but fans think more drama has happened behind the scenes. So, Derick’s decision to voice his opinion about Jim Bob’s run for office shouldn’t come as a shock.
Derick Dillard Reacts To Father-In-Law’s State Senate Run
On Instagram, KNWA News shared about Jim Bob’s candidacy. In the comments section of the post, Derick simply left a thinking emoji. While it’s a simple comment, it says a lot on a post like this. It’s unclear exactly how Derick feels about his father-in-law’s decision. He could be urging voters to think before they vote. He could also be wondering why Jim Bob even decided to run. There are plenty of possibilities.
However, many fans think that this comment is negatively directed toward Jim Bob in some way. Derick didn’t necessarily applaud Jim Bob’s decision or give voters a reason to vote for him.
Fans And Critics Attack Jim Bob Duggar After He Decides To Run
Since the news broke on Friday, critics and fans alike have been going after Jim Bob. They don’t think that he should be running for state Senate right now because of his son Josh’s ongoing child pornography case. Jim Bob is campaigning on “pro-family” values, but fans and critics think this is hypocritical because of what’s going on with his own family right now. Though Josh is a grown man and may face consequences for his own alleged actions, Jim Bob is reportedly standing by his son’s side.
So, what do you think Derick Dillard meant by leaving a thinking emoji in the comments section of the post about Jim Bob Duggar? Do you think the Duggar dad should be running for state Senate right now? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
