Rick Perry’s speech wasn’t the only part of his presidential announcement that had people talking today.

Many viewers were distracted by the burly male twins standing behind him, flanking him on either side.

At first it appeared that they may have just been lucky members of the crowd who happened to have snagged key podium spots behind the former Texas governor, but Perry eventually introduced him in his speech.

Marcus and Morgan Luttrell are Texan brothers and Navy SEALs. Marcus Luttrell is best known for his book “Lone Survivor,” which was later turned into a movie. It documents a mission in Afghanistan where he was the only one of four SEALs to survive a mission.
Today marked Perry’s second run for president and he chose to join the crowded field with a kick off speech highlighting his time in the air force (with the selection of venue: an airfield) and his special guests.

In addition to the Luttrell brothers, Taya Kyle, the widow of famed ‘American Sniper’ Chris Kyle, was also in attendance.

But every liberal media pundit, and I mean every one, had no idea who Marcus Luttrell was. Not only that, but several mocked the men. If it had been Caitlyn Jenner, it would have been no problem.
