From Bobby Jindal to Fox News, Republicans are piling on Donald Trump and making fun of his constant whining.
Here’s the video, in which Jindal’s people once again use one of Charlie Sheen’s interviews and juxtapose it with Donald Trump whining about the way he’s being treated to make the point that Trump is more like Sheen than ever a presidential candidate should be.
Watch “Winning to Whining” here:
“And I am a whiner, I’m a whiner and I keep whining and whining until I win” Trump says.
Sheen, “Epic. Epic behavior.”
Trump, “What about me!? Where’s my name?”
Sheen mutters about something written by a “broken down fool” and we cut to Trump looking pretty much like a broken down fool, whining, “I’m at 40! Where’s my name?”
Sheen mumbles some more about a five percent success rate and we cut to Trump whining about being asked tough questions during a Republican debate (as if that were even possible). “Everything was about Trump said this, Trump said that.”
Ugh, I know, right.
Sheen says, “Let’s do something different, because this thing is boring.”
They scroll Jindal’s anti-Trump message, “It’s time to get serious” and then the Jindal for President logo, because nothing says serious like Kenneth the Page.
This is a continuation of Jindal’s ‘anti-Trump” effort to get noticed in the increasingly bizarre field we call the Republican presidential primaries. Last we saw him, Jindal was claiming that Donald Trump was former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s only chance of winning. You know, because she leads Jindal in his own state.
But still, wit is wit and this is unexpected from the Governor who gave us a “Kenneth the Page” rebuttal to President Obama’s State of the Union in 2009. It’s also nice to see that we can agree on some things, and right now, we can agree that Donald Trump is a big old whiner.
