Bobby Jindal is already on record not liking Donald Trump, but today he seems to be picking a fight with another candidate he thinks is desperately trying to leech onto him: Ted Cruz.
Yes, throughout this campaign, the Texas senator has been praising Trump, defending him, and refusing to criticize him because he believes the liberal media loves it when Republicans fight and so he will not give them what they want.
(Cruz has attacked one very prominent Republican, Mitch McConnell, by accusing him of lying; critiques that earned him scolding from his colleagues and accusations of hypocrisy on attacking fellow Republicans.)
First Jindal put out an op-ed attacking Trump for supporting “the government takeover of health care” and saying, “Even conservative senators like Ted Cruz are complicit. He has distinguished himself by praising Trump’s positions and clinging to his events, in the hope of picking up his votes when he eventually fades.”
And then, in case it wasn’t clear Jindal was trying to pick a fight with Cruz, he’s started tweeting at him:
— Gov. Bobby Jindal (@BobbyJindal) October 1, 2015
— Gov. Bobby Jindal (@BobbyJindal) October 2, 2015
We will add more if this continues (and given the campaign so far, it probably will).
