More Trumpy than Trump

Bobby Jindal insists Trump is not actually the Trump you're looking for.
III. But, here’s the problem. Donald Trump is also full of nonsense.
  • Don’t get me wrong — His act is tremendous. It’s a sellout show, and I’ve enjoyed it.
I laughed out loud when he read Lindsey Graham’s cell number on live TV.
I got a kick out of him giving kids helicopter rides at the Iowa state fair
And I was amused when he said the people at Jeb’s townhall were sleeping.
  • But, it is now time for us to do what Donald would do, and say the thing that everyone is thinking, but is afraid to say out loud. So I’m going to do it.
The Donald Trump Act is great, and the idea of Donald Trump is great — BUT the reality of Donald Trump is absurd, he’s a non-serious carnival act.
Jindal, of course, believes he is the correct Trump.  Whether or not this message connects with voters, it is the correct message for Jindal to send now.  Oyster explained this the other day

If Jindal's campaign continues to languish at the bottom, it won't be because he's run it poorly.  Jindal has positioned himself exactly where a candidate looking to take the GOP nomination this year would want to be.  If it doesn't work out for him, it will be because, well, Bobby is kind of a nerd and people aren't very excited about him. But it won't be because he's running a poor campaign.
