Bobby Jindal

Bobby Jindal presidential bid sparks Twitter mockery
25 June 2015 From the section India
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal's announcement that he is entering the Republican presidential race has become the subject of online mockery.

Mr Jindal launched his campaign with a call for a uniform US identity, saying he disliked Americans being identified by origin, ethnicity or wealth.

The hashtag #BobbyJindalisSoWhite began trending on Twitter after the launch.

The tweets poked fun at Mr Jindal's speech and alleged attempts to distance himself from his Indian heritage.

"We are not Indian-Americans, African-Americans, Irish-Americans, rich Americans, or poor Americans. We are all Americans," he told supporters.

Also a subject of ridicule was the fact that Mr Jindal railed against allowing "people to immigrate to this country so that they can use our freedoms to undermine our freedoms".

I laughed out loud when I read this at 4:30 AM.  Ah, the tales and stories of politicians!
