Rick Perry Insults Wendy Davis AGAIN

by: Ben Sherman

Fri Jun 28, 2013 at 03:00 PM CDT

On Laura Ingraham's show Friday morning, Rick Perry put down Wendy Davis again:

I said I was proud of what Wendy had accomplished in her life. I'm sad that she does not understand that every life is precious, and certainly her own.

What else is there to say? After asserting yesterday that Davis "hasn't learned from her own example," Perry says today that "she does not understand" the value of her own life. A disgusting comment.

It's Rick Perry who doesn't understand the value of women's lives.

Senator Davis stood up so that Texas women could have healthy lives and make their own decisions. She is literally a fighter for life, freedom, and personal happiness. Rick Perry is a misogynistic cretin who wants to control women's bodies. The whole country is recoiling at him more than ever, and celebrating Senator Davis. Her unshakeable stand against Rick Perry and the Texas Republicans' dangerous agenda makes her an American hero.

Stand with Texas women. The fight continues at the Capitol on Monday with a massive rally at noon.

Listen to Perry's comments below the jump.
