Dannel Malloy, the Democratic governor of Connecticut, apparently is not a fan of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.
Now Buzzfeed has chronicled how the incoming head of the Democratic Governors Association has habitually poked fun at Jindal’s presidential ambitions in the past year. Jindal is a former head of the Republican Governors Association and weighing a run for president in 2016.
“He must have been beaten up really bad on the playground. Really bad, I think,” Malloy joked to Buzzfeed about Jindal.
Malloy says his feud with Jindal can largely be traced back to what was supposed to be a bi-partisan news conference at the White House last year. Jindal took the opportunity to slam President Barack Obama. Malloy and Jindal got into a back-and-forth at the mic, drawing national media attention.
