After weeks of silence and uncertainty, the agency responsible for ensuring the safety of our nuclear arsenal finally has an answer to the question of who exactly is in charge under President Trump. Last night, just hours before Trump was to be sworn in, his transition team finally asked Under Secretary for Nuclear…
Former Governor of Texas Rick Perry, a man who became 12 percent smarter when he started wearing glasses, is testifying on Capitol Hill today. He’s been nominated by president-elect Trump to be the secretary of energy, and Perry is currently sailing through the confirmation process while cracking jokes.
In December, Rick Perry enthusiastically accepted the nomination to be Donald Trump’s secretary of energy—unfortunately for both Perry and the American people, he had no idea what the fuck he was signing up for. According to a New York Times report, Perry originally believed the job was being “a global ambassador for…
Between the Trump transition team’s infighting, incompetence, and high-profile resignations, any decisions that signaled even a modicum of stability for the country would come as a relief at this point.

Texas Governor Rick Perry can't believe a "teen mom" would one day be a state senator defending the rights of women to choose whether or not they're ready to have children. Shouldn't Sen. Wendy Davis have aborted her child, since she hates babies so much?
Furious over the failure of his personal crusade to ban abortion in the state of Texas, Governor Rick Perry has called for a second "special session" of the Texas legislature on July 1.
