Bobby Jindal Tries #AskBobby Q&A On Twitter, Goes Down In Flames

#AskBobbyMy governor, Piyush “Bobby” Jindal, is one of many Republicans running for the party’s presidential nomination in 2016. With so many candidates in the race, anything he could do to get an edge on the competition would have been a welcome to his campaign, which is currently sitting in the low single digits in the polls.

Apparently someone on his campaign staff thought it was a good idea to do a Q&A session on Twitter in order to connect with more potential voters, especially since it doesn’t look like he’s going to be getting much in the way of funding from GOP sugar daddy donors like the Koch brothers or Sheldon Adelson. Currently, the Jindal 2016 campaign has been courting Duck Dynasty fans and  far-right religious voters like the Duggars and the evangelical Christian homeschooling movement.

“No one has worked harder than Bobby Jindal for the support of evangelical Christians. He even invented an award just so he could give it to Willie Robertson; and, in exchange, he became the subject of an entire episode of “Duck Dynasty.” He organized a prayer rally on the campus of LSU, which was officially hosted by the American Family Association, a noted anti-gay hate group. He traded in his khakis and buttoned-up polos for belt buckles and cowboy boots. So far this year, he has already tweeted two different photos of himself holding a gun; his Christmas card was of him and his family, dressed in camouflage, posing in a golf cart on the grounds of the Governor’s Mansion as if they were somehow on a hunting expedition. On the increasingly rare Sunday mornings that he spends in state, he is usually in the backseat of his helicopter, shuffling between church services in North and Central Louisiana.” (Source)

Bobby Jindal can’t secure the Republican nomination solely on the support of 15 passenger van driving, gay hating evangelical Christians. Even many Republicans in Louisiana can’t stand the guy considering how badly he’s tarnished their brand by running the state into the ground while he’s spent the last two years crisscrossing the globe trying to drum up support for his eventual 2016 run. This is why someone made the suggestion that he should hop on Twitter, use the hashtag #AskBobby, and climb higher in the Fox News polls where he currently sits at the bottom. Except that’s not how it worked out, at all. In fact, it was an unmitigated disaster and from all around the country, people turned the #AskBobby hashtag into one of the most brutal, unbridled roastings Twitter has ever seen.

Here are just a few of the remarks that reminded America why Bobby Jindal is one of the most hated governors in the country.

Did you get the idea for your portrait from all the white portraits of Jesus?  – @rsoulela

Has Piyush been relegated to the status of an imaginary friend? And did you exorcise him? – @DaAwesumPossum

If you’re “fiscally conservative” why does our state have a huge deficit and why are you cutting education & mental health to pay it  – @TheWickerMan504

My wife wants to know what else the guys have in common with Jesus besides beards, guns, hate gays… ? – @sacalait

Hey , before deciding to call yourself “Bobby,” were Greg, Peter or even Marcia options?  [email protected]

yo when did you first realize you were a white guy called Bobby trapped in brown man called Piyush’s body?  – @azharusman

I’m going to venture a guess and say the person who came up with the idea of doing a Twitter Q&A is sitting with all of their luggage at the Des Moines, Iowa airport right now, waiting on a flight back to Louisiana. I can’t wait until the next Republican hopeful tries the same thing – this was too much fun not to do again.

    I would rather people attack him for his policies instead of his name or cultural background.

    • Michael D. Rich

      His policies stink…his state is in the tank…and it’s his fault…pandering trash…

      • OMGface

        Most incredible, he and his NJ counterpart are so completely self deluded they actually think they are worth of some nomination!

    • Ali Wamboldt

      Sounds like it’s less about his cultural background, and more about him ignoring his roots to fit in with his party.

      • OMGface

        Yep, he’s a silly putty bible thumper Faust.

    • Ronnie Pruett

      I don’t think they are attacking his name per se, just the fact that he started using “Bobby” so he could be a politician. They are attacking him for abandoning his identity, which I support.

      • ORAXX

        I agree mostly, except in his case calling himself ‘Bobby’ is just so much more nauseating pander.

      • OMGface

        They are attacking what he settles for being and believing….all of which makes Jefferson rotate in his grave.

      • Ronald Woolever

        I sincerely doubt that Jefferson would have given a damn about a moronic governor trying to hide what is obvious to all who can see. He would have picked a more liberal state, but then that would go against his principles…..if he had any.

      • OMGface

        But Ronald, have you
        any clue how many pseudo humans there are running trying to chase the minuscule
        tea party certifiables, pseudo humans who are doing the same? Bible
        thumping replicants. Jefferson’s core mandate was to establish the
        importance of separation of church and state. Was my point. Jefferson is one of my fav dead people. Tho I have many. Jefferson is one of my fav dead people….tho I
        have many.

    • Nancy B

      Oh, go out to Twitter and read more of the tweets. These are just the tip of the iceberg. Plenty of policy-related questions. You may not like them or the snark in them, but they ARE related to idiotic statements, his politics, and policies.

      • OMGface

        Thank you……means there is some hope and the entire electorate doesn’t comprise silly putty humans.

  • Thunder Panus

    • Kaye Dyer

      You have officially ruined my day. What a disgusting thing to write.

    • Michael D. Rich

      When dog doo no longer stinks!

    • Chris19741949

      If you aren’t being totally snarky and sarcastic, you are one repugnant piggy wiggy, panus.

      • OMGface

        Highest marks.

    • noah vail

      because they have done so well by their constituents? what shape are they leaving their states in…i’ll bet there is no $$$ surplus and the wages are way below average

  • Mike Meeks

    Jim Webb for President!!

  • Ray Patton

    Bobby, say it loud, Im Black and Im proud !

    • OMGface

      Way cute!!!

  • Ray Patton

    I think the repubicans/tea party are laying groudwork for inserection. There is no way the current candidates have any hope of winning an election. Theres definatly something else in the works.

    • Chris19741949

      I really doubt that the pubbie tea people candidates or their icky followers could come together long enough to plan anything. Stupid is as stupid does…

      • OMGface

        Let us HOPE.

    • OMGface

      More fine sardonicism….reflects real intelligence and discernment!.

  • noah vail

    i do believe that when he is put out of office he will never be seen near a “christian” church again and he will deny that he ever met the duck dynasty folks
