Donald Trump says Bobby Jindal's 'stupid party' remark could hurt Republicans

Donald Trump, the real estate mogul and reality TV star who is not one to shrink from the spotlight, sought it out again Monday (Feb. 4) when he criticized Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal's for remarks he made to Republican leaders last month. The statements, in which Jindal urged the GOP to stop being "the stupid party," lent credence and power to the Democrats, Trump said on

Trump, a frequent critic of both political parties, said he did not fault Jindal for his overall message. However, he said the use of the word "stupid" by the new head of the Republican Governors Association puts the GOP at a disadvantage by handing a new sound bite to the Democrats.

"Look, I speak ill of (the GOP's) negotiating abilities, I speak ill of certain things -- they make mistakes, but I want to tell you, I thought that term, used by the governor, was a disgrace and he shouldn't have used it," Trump said, adding it was "demeaning" to the GOP and a "horrible thing for him to say."

8. I'm sure a lot of the teabaggers won't like what Jindal said, either

I know Joe Scarborough has said similar - hoping the GOP won't be stupid.

2. Since Trump is one of the biggest things hurting the GOP, he should know.

Of course, there's no reason HE should have to stop hurting his party.

That's why Trump's pissed.

13. Jindal has every right to be critical of his party as he is an active member

and a sitting governor. While I may not like Jindal, at least he has the common sense to push for change within his party. Whether that will happen or not is a totally different story.

Trump and his hairpiece is a disgrace to mankind.
