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.
