Jindal: Trump Isn’t a Conservative, ‘He’s a Narcissist’

Jindal Values Voter Trump
September 25, 2015 4:39 p.m.

Presidential candidate and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) launched a tirade against his rival Donald Trump during his address at Friday’s Values Voter Summit. Jindal told the audience that Trump is a “man who cares about nothing but himself.”

“The idea of Donald Trump is great,” Jindal said. “The reality of Donald Trump is different.”

Jindal said he appreciated Trump’s outsider approach to the campaign, and that he “loved” when Trump released Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-SC) cell number on live TV and gave helicopters to kids at the Iowa State Fair. But he said the nominee for the Republican Party would have to be a policy wonk, not a “narcissist.”

“He doesn’t care about policy,” Jindal said. “We as conservatives have a choice to make: are we going to turn to our conservative principles or are we going to turn to a man who cares about nothing but himself?”

“He said his favorite book was the Bible but folks he hasn’t read the Bible,” Jindal said. “You know he hasn’t read the Bible because his name’s not in the Bible.”

The audience applauded loudly.
