I am so much enjoying having Donald Trump in the Republican presidential race. He behaves like a really immature high school freshman running for class president and you know he’s just going to keep taunting the other candidates one by one, starting feud after feud. First, it was Jeb Bush, now it’s Rick Perry, who fired the first shot:
“I have a message for my fellow Republicans and the independents who will be voting in the primary process: what Mr. Trump is offering is not conservatism, it is Trump-ism – a toxic mix of demagoguery and nonsense,” Perry said in a statement released Thursday afternoon.
Perry said the former reality star’s month-old campaign shows “his fundamental misunderstanding of border security.”
Of course, there’s nothing to remotely indicate that Perry understands it any better, despite a couple of ridiculous photo ops taken on gunboats on the Rio Grande. Trump fired back in his usual style:
.@GovernorPerry failed on the border. He should be forced to take an IQ test before being allowed to enter the GOP debate.

He does have a point. I’m having a hard time following this. I keep forgetting which one is rubber and which one is glue. But who cares! Keep it going, boys!
