Rick Perry Named Secretary of ‘Oops’

Rick Perry Named Secretary of 'Oops'

President-elect Donald Trump nominated former Texas governor Rick Perry as Secretary of  Energy, a department GOP candidate Perry would have abolished if he could have remembered what it was:

Rick Perry, a former Aggie Cadet and frat boy cheerleader with a degree in Animal Science, is an Air Force veteran, former “Dancing With the Stars” contestant (he lost), and once shot a coyote with a pistol while he was jogging.  Mr. Perry is on the board of Energy Transfer Partners, which is currently building the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline. In addition to such conflicts of interest, he manged to become wealthy during his 3 terms as Texas Governor, so he’ll be right at home in the Trump kleptocracy.

Oh yeah, climate change denier Rick Perry likes fossil fuels, fracking, coal-fired electric plants, nuclear waste, and the occasional wind farm.
