Texas Governor Rick Perry has made a number of shocking statements after declaring his intention to run for president, including ending all EPA regulations and removing the federal government from any involvement in education, but it was his declarations of love for America that got him on The Daily Show (video below).
“I think you want a president who cares about America, that’s in love with America,” Perry said Monday in Iowa. On Tuesday night, Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart mocked Gov. Perry’s “love” for his country.
“You want a president that’s in love with America,” Stewart repeated. “You want a president who would in a rain storm, grab America’s hand and take shelter with America in a nearby barn. And maybe help America out of its wet clothes.”
Stewart continued his rant, “Maybe lay America down on some hay bales and as America and Rick Perry become one, the sounds of their love making merging, with the thunder storms cacophany, the barn shutters rattling the livestock. The livestock, they want to look away, but they can’t. Their eyes are transfixed.”
“I am Rick Perry and unlike Barack Obama, I will f*ck the sh*t out of America!” he exclaimed. “America, you got a pretty mouth.”
“That was awkward,” Stewart added.
