Anti-gay Republican Bobby Jindal tried to do a Twitter Q&A… it didn’t go well for him

Anti-gay Republican Presidential wannabe Bobby Jindal attempted to hold a Q&A on Twitter – but the internet had other ideas.

On Tuesday, Jindal’s ‘Believe Again’ PAC posted a seemingly harmless request on social media for questions for the Governor of Louisiana, who is a vocal opponent of LGBT rights.

The Republican had intended to answer the Tweets at his campaign’s first town hall event in Waukee, Iowa.

Although the super political action committee’s account only has 103 followers, Twitter caught wind of the Q&A – and attempted to question the deeply conservative governor on his opposition to same-sex marriage.

His recent decision to block same-sex marriage licenses for three days was noted.

Jindal’s official statement on the SCOTUS ruling was reflected upon.

Twitter asked about his proclaimed plan to protect the religious freedom of Americans, in light of the legalisation of same-sex marriage.

Creationism (intelligent design, rather) was discussed- a topic that Jindal knows well, considering the law he passed permitted public school teachers to discuss it in place of evolution.

After signing it, the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology refused to meet in New Orleans as a result.

Then, there were inquiries about his conversion from Hinduism to Catholicism.

Some followers wondered why Jindal feels the need to ignore his legal name, Piyush.

Users brought up his strong opposition to abortion, embryonic stem cell research and women’s reproductive rights.

Pictures on social media of Jindal with alleged child abuser Josh Duggar from over a year ago were reminisced upon.

No one actually asked anything that the Governor would want to answer.

All in all, it could have gone much worse. Right?
