I wish this was something from TheOnion but it’s Rick Perry in real life.

Perry said electricity is important “from the standpoint of sexual assault. When the lights are on, when you have light that shines the righteousness, if you will, on those types of acts.”  And he somehow tied that in with “…how you really affect people’s lives, fossil fuels … play a role in that,” Perry said. “I happen to think it’s going to play a positive role.”

So we can then determine that solar energy causes sexual assault.  Because bikinis I suppose.  Solid reasoning.  All fine and good. I’m following 100%.

But the place I get wrapped around a tree is, if sexual assault is prevented by fossil fuels, how did Trump do all those sexual assaults because he’s constantly around fossil fuels?  They should have stopped his predatory actions, right?

I’m sure I just need the superior intellect of some GOP congressman to explain it all to my little pea brain.
