Billionaire mogul Donald Trump says that Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) is the “stupid” one because he should not have publicly called Republicans “the stupid party.”
In his keynote address to Republican National Committee’s winter meeting in North Carolina last month, Jindal had advised Republicans to “stop being the stupid party” and to “talk like adults.”
“I think he was stupid for using that term because that term is so obnoxious and so good for the other side that he should not have used that term,” Trump told Fox News on Monday. “Because that term is going to be living now with the Republican Party for a long time and they’re going to have his face on television saying it for the next four years.”
“I thought that term used by the governor was a disgrace, and he shouldn’t have used it,” he added. “I thought it was very demeaning to the Republican Party… You don’t use the word stupid because the word stupid is now going to be a part of the vocabulary of the Democrats.”
“I thought it was a horrible thing for him to say. Frankly, I thought it was stupid thing for him to say."
