Watch how Rick Perry handles the insulting question MSNBC would NEVER ask a Democrat

Sitting down with MSNBC reporter Kasie Hunt for an interview aired Thursday, outgoing Texas Gov. Rick Perry might have expected her to ask at any moment when he stopped beating his wife.

Of course, we know Perry does not beat his wife, just as we know the four-term governor of the second largest state, with an economy that’s the 15th largest in the world, is smart enough to be president of the United States.

But that didn’t stop Hunt from asking the insulting question after Perry spoke on his performance during the 2012 GOP presidential primary.

“I think over the course of the last two years, people, they realize that what they saw in 2011 is certainly not the person they’re looking at in 2013, 2014, 2015,” Perry said.

“And are you smart enough to be president of the United States?” Hunt asked.

Instead of snapping back with a question about whether Hunt is smart enough to be an MSNBC reporter, Perry handled the question well, saying “running for the presidency is not an IQ test.”

But that he answered at all only advances the liberal media’s narrative that Perry is somehow not quite smart enough to be president — a narrative pop culture is only too eager to advance.

Then again, after six years of an arrogant Ivy Leaguer residing in the White House, and some critics wondering if the country will survive his final two years, maybe it’s time to forego politicians who are “book smart and sidewalk stupid”.
