In a speech today Rick Perry announced that he is dropping out of the presidential race.
And the Trumpo responded almost immediately!!
.@GovernorPerry is a terrific guy and I wish him well- I know he will have a great future!

Well, that’s nice of him to take the high road on this one.
Previously, he had not been quite so nice:
Rick Perry did an absolutely horrible job of securing the border. He should be ashamed of himself. Gov. Abbott has since been terrific.

Rick Perry failed at the border. Now he is critical of me. He needs a new pair of glasses to see the crimes committed by illegal immigrants.

Especially since Perry seemed to specifically target Trump in his parting speech, even if it wasn’t by name:
Perry: "Demeaning people of Hispanic heritage is not just ignorant, it betrays the example of Christ."

Ah well, we wish him well. One wonders what would have become of his run if Trump hadn’t suddenly grabbed a chokehold on the GOP race.
