May 5, 2016 – Back in September of 2015—ah, those wonderful days, when someone might still merrily laugh like a gin-soaked Daisy Buchanan if you told them Donald Trump was a presidential candidate to be reckoned with—Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal put his foot down. Donald Trump, he told an audience at the National Press Club, was “dangerous,” unhinged, and completely unqualified for the White House.
“The reality of Donald Trump is absurd. He’s a non-serious carnival act,” Jindal, still in the midst of his quixotic presidential campaign, told the crowd. “It’s silly to argue policy with this guy. He doesn’t know anything about it, he has no idea what he is talking about, he makes it all up on the fly.”
