Jindal Publishes A Dystopian Fiction About A Future With President Trump

Republican presidential candidate and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal imagined a world in which GOP rival Donald Trump is President, travels in “Hair Force One,” and celebrities compete for his Cabinet positions, in an op-ed posted on CNN Tuesday.

Jindal and Trump have recently exchanged words on social media and have attacked each other’s campaigns in interviews.

Jindal wrote in his op-ed:

President Trump today announced that the first season of “The Apprentice: White House Edition” will air on CBS this fall. Contestants, including Gary Busey, Ted Cruz and Kanye West, will vie for Cabinet positions. The announcement came as the newly renamed “Hair Force One” touched down in South Dakota for the unveiling of President Trump’s face on Mount Rushmore. Meanwhile, first lady Melania had reason to celebrate as her White House-branded perfume, Trump, by Trump, hit Macy’s shelves …

No, this is not a story from The Onion. It’s a vision of our future. The only people who would enjoy a Trump presidency are Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert. The jokes write themselves.

But this is no laughing matter. Our country is slipping away. The liberalism and incompetence of the Obama administration have pushed us to the edge of a socialist abyss.
