Despite two failed presidential campaigns, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry could still be headed to the White House.
The Dancing With the Stars flunkie posted this photo on his Instagram and Twitter timelines today, less than 24 hours after Donald Trump was declared the victor over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Immediately, news organizations and watchful Twitter and Instagram followers latched onto this tidbit, concerned or exuberant that it could suggest he’s being tapped for a position on president-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet.
I can't wait for you to drive some bulls up to the Washington DC to break a few pieces of liberal china.

It wouldn’t be a completely unexpected turn of events: Perry’s policies and viewpoints about women, relationship with the LGBTQ community, debate performances, and history of courtroom controversy are not dissimilar to Trump’s, after all.
Maybe if he is tapped to helm a high-profile government agency, he’ll actually be able to remember its name.
