The real race: Trump vs. Jindal on twitter
Written by 

jindal-trumpWe have a race.

Sort of.

We all know that Donald J. Trump is dominating the republican candidates in the polls, on TV talk shows, news programs and yes, even social media.

As soon as The Donald launches a new “Trumpette” or shall we say, Trump tweet, a shout is heard around the world.

What about the other candidates, say, like our own Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal?

 Well, he gets his exposure, sometimes.  When he insisted Europe was infested with Go Zones while Fox News said it was not, his name went up in lights on tweetosphere.   Then, there was the time he tweeted the video he took of that hidden camera on that tree when he popped the question to his kids—“hey, you want to go to Iowa, don’tcha?”

So, not exactly.  But he did entice his offsprings with a trip if they were good. Trump vs. Jindal on twitterTrump vs. Jindal on twitter

Jindal and Trump jumped into the presidential race within one week of one another.  Maybe the governor should have made his announcement going down an escalator, as did the real estate magnate, for, as we know, the latter is taking off and the former is still on the platform. 

In fairness, Jindal is not the only one being covered in the dust of Trump’s smoke.

Trump is currently capturing 25 percent of the vote (according to the latest Fox News poll).  Jindal?  Well, he’s at 1 percent, but that means, he has more room for growth, right?

But, to get a real idea of the political race between the two candidates, and most likely between Trump and probably a number of the lower tier candidates, I decided to randomly capture the twitter feeds (within moments of one another) where Trump and Jindal were being mentioned.

Take a look at the video:

wag edwards tweetIn the age of rapid response, social media, President and CEO of the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry took to twitter to apparently poke the Democrat Governor and to promote his own tour of his own legislative package, or legislative outlook tour, beginning today.

Today, Stephen Waguespack of LABI tweeted in response to The Advocate’s Tyler Bridges article that John Bel Edwards would be delaying his release of his tax overhaul package that was scheduled for today.

quin hillyer health 5Have the conservative Freedom Caucus and advocacy organizations such as Freedom Works and Heritage Action "screwed the American people"?

That's the feeling expressed by at least one long-time conservative Republican, who, as millions of others were outraged by the destruction of the Obamacare "repeal" and replacement, on Friday.

comey sitThe GOP will likely claim that the bogus “ Assisted suicide counseling” will still be covered since Obamacare remains the law of the land. That’s good news for GOP legislators who planned on voting “yes” on its repeal. The rich, also, should be happy the old law remains because they have wounds that need tending after the mega tax breaks for them that were inserted in Trumpcare went the way of leeching. The failure to repeal, of course, is the Democrats fault. Trump said so, but he has reason to be happy, too. The health care debacle managed, if just for an hour, or two, to deflect attention away from Russia.
