Ahead of a town hall event in Iowa on Tuesday, presidential candidate and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) asked for questions on Twitter with the #AskBobby hashtag, and the move predictably backfired on the presidential candidate.
The Believe Again PAC indicated that Jindal would answer some of the questions at the town hall event, but it was not clear on Wednesday morning whether the governor addressed any of the questions asked on Twitter.
Have questions for Bobby Jindal? Tweet us with #AskBobby and he might answer it at our town hall event tonight.

Twitter users took the opportunity to ask Jindal ridiculous questions about dinosaurs and “Duck Dynasty” and mock his political positions.
How does it feel to sell your soul for political gain and yet not gain anything politically? #AskBobby

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) also had a question and answer session backfire on him last week. He answered bizarre questions about living with bears and the meaning of life.
