Beem on Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, and Political Rhetoric
Jan 26, 2017
Last summer, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry gave a speech in which he outlined his opinion of then presidential candidate Donald Trump:
"He offers a barking carnival act that can be best described as Trumpism: A toxic mix of demagoguery and mean-spiritedness and nonsense that will lead the Republican Party to perdition if pursued ... Let no one be mistaken," Perry said. "Donald Trump's candidacy is a cancer on conservatism, and it must be clearly diagnosed, excised and discarded."
