Rick Perry Slams Donald Trump as "Cancer on Conservatism"

by at .

It looks like we need to update our rundown of most heated celebrity feuds.

With Donald Trump (somehow) continuing to lead many Republican Presidential nominee polls, Rick Perry has come out swinging against one of his opponents for the Oval Office.

According to Politico, Perry told a crowd at Washington, D.C.'s Willard Hotel this week the following about The Donald: 

"He offers a barking carnival act that can be best described as Trumpism:

"A toxic mix of demagoguery, mean-spiritedness and nonsense that will lead the Republican Party to perdition if pursued.

"Let no one be mistaken: Donald Trump's candidacy is a cancer on conservatism, and it must be clearly diagnosed, excised and discarded."

Considering how Trump went off on Anderson Cooper last night simply for being told of one negative poll... we can only imagine how he'll respond to Perry's rebuke.

Trump, of course, came under fire many weeks ago for saying most Mexican immigrants are either rapists or drug abusers.

But it was only after Trump slammed John McCain as a NON-war hero (because he got captured, d'uh!) that his fellow Conservative hopefuls finally started to turn against him.

This is the strongest public stance one has come out against him with, however.

"Donald Trump, the reality television star, is a great generator of ratings," Perry added.

"But Donald Trump the candidate is a sower of division, wrongly demonizing Mexican-Americans for political sport.

"He has piqued the interest of some Republican voters who have legitimate concerns about a porous border and broken immigration system. But instead of offering those voters leadership or solutions, he has offered fear and sound bites.

"This cannot stand."
