Oops! Perry 'accidentally told the truth' about dumping nuclear waste in Nevada, roiling Senate race

Trump lies about his plan to flood Nevada with nuclear waste.

One thing that unites Nevadans is opposition to President Donald Trumpís effort to turn the state into a huge nuclear waste dump.

Thatís why many were surprised when Trump suggested he might abandon that policy after touring the state recently with GOP Senator Dean Heller, who is in a tight reelection race against Democrat Jacky Rosen.

But Trumpís Energy Secretary, Rick Perry, admitted on Friday the administration still supports building the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository outside of Las Vegas.

In doing so, Perry effectively spoiled Trumpís effort to help Heller, as Jon Ralston, editor of the Nevada Independent, explained to Bloomberg: ďPoor Rick Perry didnít get the memo and accidentally told the truth.Ē

19. "Oops."

Dear God, Texas. WHAT ON EARTH were you thinking??? HOW ON EARTH did you find this idiot worthy of your vote? Iíve spent years trying to figure that out. And Iíve failed.

I had arguments with a friend in Texas about this. My friend eagerly gushed about ďwhat a GREAT politicianĒ Perry is/was, whenever the former governorís name came up. At least until he made that colossally stupid mistake during that debate, that is. Itís been silence on Rick Perry from that friend ever since. Really slammed it shut.

16. Hahaha

For once, putting an idiot in a high-level government position creates blowback for pukes, not just harm to the rest of us.

Oh, and for puke Nevadans: wanna bet donnie thinks of Nevada as a sh*thole state, except for Vegas? And hence worthy of being a nuclear waste dump.

17. Some of the waste remains toxic for hundreds of thousands of years.

Human written history is about 5000 years. Who's going to be keeping track of the waste 5000 years from now?
