Twitter campaigns for easily ridiculed politicians are most always hilarious disasters, and Bobby Jindal’s team should have learned that lesson by now.
Nevertheless, they pushed forth with the hashtag #AskBobby in an effort to engage the 2016 GOP presidential candidate with his followers before a town hall event he’s appearing at this Tuesday.
First town hall featuring Bobby Jindal is tonight in Waukee. Send us your questions with #AskBobby! Be sure to include your name and city.

Pro tip: If you’re a GOP politician who’s spent the last 6 years of your governorship pushing for creationism to be taught in public schools, don’t be surprised if your Twitter campaign turns out to be a disaster.
Here are a few of the best ones:

Are you using the hashtag #AskBobby instead of #AskPiyush because you know your racist party wouldn’t elect you if they knew your name?
