This photo is making the rounds but I’ve had trouble tracking down the source. It appears to show Texas Republican Gov. Rick Perry in a helicopter gunship leaning on a powerful-looking weapon aimed at the ground. He is scanning the field below presumably, given recent headlines, seeking to target and shoot refugee children who are attempting to cross the U.S. border from Mexico. A commenter somewhere on Facebook pointed out that the gun Perry is leaning on is not loaded, but I can’t verify that either.
But check out how he’s dressed and posed for the photo op. He is shown in profile — jaw clenched, with his baseball cap on backwards and his “I’m smart” glasses removed — wearing a flight jacket with mom jeans. His right hand is gripping the weapons but his left hand is carefully draped over the gun to display his Aggie ring (shown in photo to the right).
Update: Mystery solved. See comments.
