( – GOP presidential candidate Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal took a swing at GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump during a speech Thursday at the National Press Club, labeling him a “narcissist.”

“Now you may have recently heard and seen that Donald Trump said that the Bible is his favorite book. Yet, when asked, he couldn’t even name a specific or a single Bible verse that was important to him, that had an impact on him. Well do you know why? Well it’s clear, Donald Trump’s never read the Bible. The reason we know he’s never read the Bible, he’s not in the Bible,” said Jindal.



Trump is currently under fire for remarks he made to Rolling Stone magazine in which he suggested that GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina would not be elected, because of her looks.

"Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?” Trump told the magazine.

Jindal also called Trump “an ego-maniac” who lacks substance.

“That may sound like a serious charge to make, but it’s something everybody knows to be true. He knows it too. He celebrates it. He says Kanye West is great. Why is Kanye West great? Because Kanye West likes Trump, so therefore, Kanye West is great,” said Jindal.

“He’s an entertainer, but he’s still a narcissist. Like all narcissists, Donald Trump is insecure and weak. He’s afraid of being exposed. That’s why he tells us always and constantly how big and strong and wealthy he is,” Jindal added.

“Look we’ve all met people like Donald Trump who tell us how insignificant everyone else is. We know that only a very weak and small person needs to constantly tell us how strong and powerful they are. Donald Trump believes he is the answer to every question,” he said.
