When the news emerged that the dad of Josh Dugger decided to campaign for a vacant Senate seat, TLC fans were flabbergasted. After all, Josh awaited the outcome of his trial for possessing child porn. Meanwhile, others thought he might have done it to deflect attention from his son’s trial. Overall, folks responded with disbelief and some shock that he arrogantly believed nobody would seem to mind the dark secrets of his family spewing out in the media. Well, those reactions seemed to not rock his world one little bit. But, Derrick Dillard, the husband of his daughter Jill probably came out with the harshest comments.
Jim Bob Duggar was at the trial of his son, as were other members of the family. Derick Dillard attended and he said that it “felt more like a funeral.” Of course, he knows that other members of the family feel a lot of emotions. Additionally, people like Joy-Anna’s husband, Austin Forsyth heard some ugly details about the molestation of Josh’s younger sisters in 2003. Naturally, as Josh awaits his sentence, and could go inside for a long time, Derick and Jill “fear” for the “soul” of Josh. Well, he only alluded to the trial on Jom Hoyt’s Facebook page, but he also made his feelings about the campaign known.

The news that Derrick Dillard slammed his father-in-law extremely harshly came from Katie Joy’s Without A Crystal Ball account on Instagram. When she shared a screenshot of Derick’s comment, she said, “Dillard made this comment under Jim Holt’s Facebook post asking people not to vote for Jim Bob Duggar.” She also reminded fans of Counting On that Derick started getting vocal about Jill’s dad when he left TLC. She wrote, “[he] accused Jim Bob of forcing his children to film for no pay or benefits.”
As you can see above, Derick claimed that Jim Bob Duggar is a liar and “continues to lie to his friends.” Adding, “will he lie to YOU?!” Probably, the harshest note came when Derick accused Jill’s dad of “manipulation,” and he likened his actions to “human trafficking.” Next, he walked about the TLC alum “being a sellout to anything he can personally profit from.” Oh yeah, he also alleged that he’s “verbally abusive.”
