Rick Perry, who was so thoroughly rejected by voters that they even let George Pataki stay in the primary race longer than him, has re-emerged to remind America why he should never be president.

“Donald Trump will peel [Hillary Clinton’s] skin off in a debate setting and actually he’ll peel it off this evening, out in San Jose as well,” Perry told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto in between commercials for gold and adult diapers.

The notion of a man whose epidermis is 70% spray-tan peeling off someone else’s skin is certainly ironic, but good luck explaining irony to a man who got a “D” in English at Texas A&M.
