Colbert Skewers Jindal in "Hungry For Power Games" (Video)

The end of Bobby Jindal’s campaign did not mean the end of Candidate J’s national role as a punchline. After news of the ended effort broke, Stephen Colbert delivered a “Hunger Games” style sendoff to da Gov’.

Jindal Out

Well, that’s four years down the drain. On Tuesday (11.17) afternoon, Bobby Jindal announced that he will be suspending his presidential bid. With poll numbers in the low single digits and flagging finances, the move came as a surprise to few.

Jindal: No More Syrian Refugees

Louisiana will not be providing a home for any more Syrian refugees in the near future. On Monday (11.16), Governor Bobby Jindal issued an executive order forbidding the resettlement of Syrian refugees in the Pelican State.

Jindal's Juicebox

Bobby Jindal is not making much of a splash on the national stage as evidenced by his one percent poll numbers. Candidate J tried to change that last night at Fox Business’ kiddie table debate. Unfortunately, da Gov’ wound up a punchline again. Instead, of garnering attention for policy, he set social media aflame for a moment about “juice boxes.”

Ansari Gives Full One Percent to Playing Jindal

In Louisiana, Bobby Jindal has long provided comic fodder. Recent single digit poll numbers have given national comics a few opportunities to get in on the fun(nies). In a Wednesday (11.04) night segment, Jimmy Fallon interviewed Jindal. More to the point, Fallon interviewed Aziz Ansari playing Jindal. 

Grasping At Straw Polls

To most political pundits, Bobby Jindal’s campaign for the presidency is looking increasingly quixotic. However, Candidate J retorts that he is tilting at Iowa, not windmills. The GOP contenders descended on the Hawkeye state for the annual Growth and Opportunity Party today and Bobby J was in rare form.

Before You Can Say Blackberry Pie

Bobby Jindal does not care what the kids think. During, Wednesday’s GOP kiddie table debate, Jindal declared that he does not have an iPhone or even a Blackberry for that matter. Jindal instead prefers to use a Blackberry.

Kiddy Table Again

Call it a “Trump card,” but the characters involved in the 2016 Republican primary have resulted in record ratings for the G.O.P. debates. On Tuesday (10.27) night, CNBC is hoping to milk the trend for some Nielsen numbers of their own. However, Bobby Jindal will not share in the bounty. Candidate J has one again been relegated to the kiddy table.

Jindal's Jam

If nothing else, Bobby Jindal is consistent. Candidate J’s campaign finances are a mess rivaled only by the state of the Louisiana budget. This week the Federal Election Commission (FEC) released candidate filings for the quarter ending September 30th and Jindal is on a perilous perch. His campaign is sitting with just under 261,000 dollars in spending money.

Jindal's No-Fly a No-Go on ABC

Bobby Jindal took to the airwaves again on Sunday (10.12). Despite his low poll numbers, Candidate J stuck to his game plan, tossing out inflammatory quotes designed to make highlight reels and appeal to the far right. However, after doubling down on his criticism of the Oregon shooter’s father, Jindal found himself on the receiving end of a foreign policy zinger.
