Former Governor Rick Perry will go before Congress today for his confirmation hearing for Secretary of Energy, a position he apparently didn't even understand at first.
A new report from the New York Times says Perry accepted the nomination believing he was "taking on a role as a global ambassador for the american oil and gas industry."
In reality, two-thirds of the energy department's budget goes towards the country's nuclear stockpile.
During his 2012 presidential campaign, Perry even said he wanted to get rid of the department.
Michael McKenna, a former member of Donald Trump's transition team, told the Times that Perry is educating himself about the job.
