Trump Trolls Back at Rick Perry with Photo of Him ‘Begging for My Support and Money’
Donald Trump does the same thing whenever he trolls the other GOP candidates. He talks about his money and influence, and how his competitors once tried to dip their hands in the “Trump Honeypot.” Or as Trump himself said at his candidacy announcement in June, “I’m really rich!”
He did it to Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) on Tuesday when, in response to Graham’s “jackass” comment on Monday, he gave out the senator’s personal phone number. Meanwhile, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry‘s campaign team began tweeting screenshots of old tweets in which Trump threw his hat in the ring for Perry’s failed 2012 bid. So of course Trump was going to respond the only way he knew how — Instagram.
On Wednesday morning, Trump posted an old photo of him and Perry in his office from the 2012 election season. In the true fashion of the Donald, he wrote: “[Rick Perry] in my office last cycle playing nice and begging for my support and money. Hypocrite!”
Never change, Donald. Not only did your intern go and dig up the old photo and help you craft yet another expert insult, but did so in a way we all expected. That is, even when “supporting” Perry in 2012, you had him stand in front of your office’s “Wall of Excellence,” which appears to be a collection of photos of yourself and magazine covers. (I can see the Playboy behind Rick’s head, good sir. I’m not blind.)
You just keep doing you, and we’ll keep watching.
