Jindal Comments on Trump

And he nails it.

“He’s a nonserious carnival act,” Jindal said in a speech at the National Press Club. “Here’s the truth about Trump that we all know, but have been afraid to say. Donald Trump is shallow. Has no understanding of policy. He’s full of bluster but has no substance. He lacks the intellectual curiosity to even learn.”

Jindal, who has been stuck at the back of a 17-candidate primary field, called Trump a “narcissist and an egomaniac” who is “insecure and weak.”

“And that’s why he is constantly telling us how big and how rich and how great he is, and how insignificant everyone else is. We’ve all met people like Trump, and we know that only a very weak and small person needs to constantly tell us how strong and powerful he is,” Jindal said.

The correct response to Trump is to roll your eyes and pray that America is not yet stupid enough to elect him to anything.

    It’s only a matter of time before Trump manages to offend everyone, not just thinking adults.

    But say this for him: he’s given (R) candidates plenty of room to move away from the K-Street/Crony Capitalist crowd of quislings. Now we’ll see who has the guts to go with that.

    Problem is: the field is so large, he could possibly get nomination with 30 percent of the vote. If he then gets defeated in a brokered convention while having most accumulated primary votes, he will throw a fit and run third party.

    So those of you supporting him in these absurd polls, stop being so void of substance in your selection for president.

    Drumpf is what you get after a generation of pandering to base instincts and corporate interests.

    The nomination is his to lose at this point. His stance on immigration could seal the deal. The immigrant crisis in Europe isn’t going to go away, will probably get much worse and will likely become the dominant news story of the fall/winter. It won’t be hard for him to draw parallels between what is happening over there and the immigration issues here.

    Scary times.

    No one cares what Bobby Jindal thinks .
    Mississippi just changed their state motto to
    ” thank God for Louisianna ”

    51% of the GOP support candidates with no policy or government experience .
    Thank God for the Clown car

    I’m starting to think Martin O’Malley could beat these chumps !

    We have let the liberals use the media and political correctness guilt this country up to the point where even common sense such as asking a citizen to produce an ID to vote is somehow considered a racial injustice.

    Trump has taken a wrecking ball to that nonsense. It is ok to talk common sense again and state your mind.

    I am completely good with it all right now. If somebody better and stronger in the GOP can be forged from this, all the better. And if the nominee is Trump, I will be fine with that as well.

    I’ll get behind voter ID laws. Just as soon as you issue an ID to every eligible voter. Done deal. Until then I’ll continue to see the whole thing for what it really is: a pretty naked attempt at vote suppression.

    Trump talking common sense? Yeah.. no. Just no. He speaks his mind? Sure. So does your drunk uncle at Christmas, but that doesn’t make him president material.

    Trump is a racist, sexist, egomaniacal blowhard. And it’s precisely what old white guys love about him. He’s Archie Bunker in an expensive suit.

    Give me an example of an eligible voter that can’t get an ID.

    “Give me an example of an eligible voter that can’t get an ID.”

    No. Give an ID to every eligible voter. Otherwise you’re putting up a hurdle–however small you may imagine it is–that people have to get over in order for them to exercise their most fundamental right in a democracy.

    And let’s be honest here. It’s a solution looking for a problem. There’s virtually no vote fraud. And what there is almost always involves absentee balloting. This ID thing doesn’t address any problem. The only way to understand it is that it’s part of a larger campaign to suppress votes. It’s why all over America we’ve seen a reduction in early voting, erroneous lists of people who are ineligible that are tens of thousands long, etc. It’s the latest in a long and dirty history of making it tough for “undesirables” to vote. Shameful.
