Some brilliant strategist over at Bobby Jindal‘s campaign thought it would be a good idea to hold a Twitter Q&A with the 2016 GOP (lack of) contender. Needless to say, things didn’t go as planned.
Jindal has the distinction of being America’s least popular governor. He’s more hated in Louisiana than Barack Obama, which is quite an accomplishment in such a deeply red state. Earlier this week, he sent the conservative majority Supreme Court a big F-U on marriage equality with an executive order granting state employees the right to deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples based on their religious beliefs.
Yesterday participants across the country were encouraged to send the 2016 hopeless questions using the hashtag #AskBobby. We’re not sure whose idea this Q&A was, but we’re pretty sure that person has since been fired… On second thought, knowing Bobby, this genius might well have been promoted.
Scroll down for a roundup of some of the best questions Jindal received…

#AskBobby You’re running on religious freedom. Will you condemn racists torching churches, or is this all about uncomfortable florists?

Have you fired the person who came up with the #AskBobby idea?
