Description

Former Gov. Rick Perry‘s (R-TX) appearance on Fox News Sunday was dominated by Trump talk, as the Republican candidate has become known as the fiercest critic of the celebrity billionaire and his over-the-top rhetoric. Asked multiple times to explain his comments that Donald Trump is a “cancer on conservatism,” Perry pointed to the real estate mogul’s controversial remark that Sen. John McCain is not a “war hero” because he was captured in battle. He also noted that Trump has held many contradictory positions in recent years, including support for single-payer health care (a big no-no in conservative politics). “I will not be quiet,” Perry said on multiple occasions, “I will not back down,” perhaps suggesting a long-term posturing as the candidate who wants to speak truth to the candidate known for just-speakin’-the-truth.
