VIDEO: Jay Smooth on Rick Perry and Superman

This vlogger sees some irony in the Republican presidential candidate comparing himself to the superhero.


Rick Perry, the governor of Texas and candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, has taken a hard line on immigration during his time as the Lone Star State's chief executive. So when Perry recently compared himself to Superman at a campaign stop, the popular vlogger Jay Smooth of Ill Doctrine couldn't help but note the irony.

"[Superman] loved America so much that he was willing to take on a secret identity, live a double life and step up to do all the hardest, most backbreaking work no one was willing to do so he could be part of America," Smooth said.
