(Newser) – Bobby Jindal sounds like he's spoiling for a fight with Donald Trump: "I think it's pretty outrageous for him to be attacking anybody's appearance when he looks like he's got a squirrel sitting on his head," the Louisiana governor tells CBS in an interview that aired last night. And that follows a string of insults yesterday before the National Press Club, including the assertion that Trump has never read the Bible because "he's not in the Bible." Politico catalogs some others in the speech: "narcissist," "egomaniac," "substance-free," "insecure," "weak," "shallow," and "unstable."

Trump, though, isn't engaging: "I only respond to people that register more than 1% in the polls." Jindal's squirrel comment was in response to Trump's dig at Carly Fiorina's face, a slam that Trump was grilled about by Fox's Greta Van Susteren last night, notes Mediaite. She cast doubt on his explanation that he was talking about her "persona," not her looks, and Trump further deflected: “Many of those comments are made as an entertainer because I did The Apprentice and it was one of the top shows on television,” he said, per Politico. “Some comments are made as an entertainer and as everybody said, as an entertainer is a much different ball game.” (Read more Donald Trump 2016 stories.)
