You won’t see Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal checking Twitter on an iPhone or hailing an Uber, like some other Republicans running for president.
During a lighter moment of Wednesday night’s GOP debate, Jindal admitted he still uses a Blackberry — and mostly for scheduling and staying in touch with his family.
“I may be the last American out there without an iPhone,” Jindal joked, adding that he has one game on his phone: Bricklayer.
Jindal, former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, U.S. Sen. Lindsay Graham of South Carolina and former New York Gov. Rick Pataki spent an hour debating issues mostly focused on the economy ahead of CNBC’s prime time debate for upper-tier GOP candidates.
But the moderators pivoted to lighter topics by asking the candidates their top 3 iPhone apps. Pataki was quick to name ride-sharing program Uber as his most-used app. Graham joked that he only has an iPhone because Republican rival Donald Trump infamously gave his number out to a crowd of his supporters and urged them to call Graham.
Also in the lightning round, the four candidates were asked whether the day after Super Bowl Sunday should be named a holiday (presumably so people could be off work the following day).
Jindal joked about New Orleans residents being hung over after the Super Bowl.
“I think it’d be a great day to take off,” he said, before praising the New Orleans Saints and quarterback Drew Brees’ contributions to the community.
