Bobby Jindal stops in Vinton, takes on Trump, Planned Parenthood

Posted: Updated:

In a packed room in Vinton, Governor Bobby Jindal made sure to mention the name of his top opponent, Donald Trump. He says the best way to make it in the media is to mention his name.

In a one-on-one interview with KWWL, Jindal got down to the issues.

Jindal said perhaps one of his biggest objectives with his campaign is replacing Obamacare.

"Let's get rid of Obamacare," he said. "Let's actually bring down the cost of healthcare for businesses and individuals. Let's help families who really need help. Let's also keep the best quality -- we've got the best healthcare system in the world -- let's not lose that quality, let's not lose that innovation."

What's really grabbed his attention recently are videos featuring Planned Parenthood. He's joined the list to defund the company in Louisiana and he says abortions aren't performed in his state.

Jindal says, if he becomes president, he will go after the organization.

"I've said, as president, I'm going to send the IRS, the Department of Justice, and any other agency to investigate Planned Parenthood," he said. "I'm pro-life. Even those who aren't pro-life, I hope would be offended by these brutal, brutal videos."

But Jindal hasn't been getting headlines lately.

That's not the case for his top opponent, Trump, and and most recently Trump's comments towards TV host Megyn Kelly. The comments were made after last week's GOP debate, suggesting Kelly was hormonal when she asked Trump tough questions. 

"Look, I think there's no room for those kinds of comments," Jindal said. "Those kinds of derogatory and rude comments, to me, show cowardness. The reality is, we don't treat people like that where I'm from."
