Ana Navarro: Jindal Attacking Trump ‘Was a Hail Mary Attempt’ To Get ‘Some Attention’

‘I’m not a Trump supporter, yet I will tell you I find it a little sad that in order for a sitting governor to get some attention’

TAPPER: “He called him a narcissist. He called him -- called him a hot head.”
BASH: “Yes. And you know, a carnival barker. He is doing it intentionally on the personality not the -- not the politics because he saw -- he actually told me, he saw that the politics argument didn’t work, that people didn’t want to hear about the –“
