Bobby Jindal exits the race. Jindal, by far was the worst candidate to declare his intentions to run for the Republican nomination. During his time running, he was trailing in the single digits. He was sent to the kiddie table along with Jim Gilmore, Rick Perry, Carly Fiorina, Rick Santorum and Lindsey Graham. In the kiddie table debate, Carly Fiorina managed to get a place in the big kids table. Jindal and the others remained in the back. When Perry and later Scott Walker bailed out the presidential race, many speculated that Rand Paul, Mike Huckabee, Chris Christie and Jindal would be the next ones to fold. It hasn't happened for Huckabee, Christie and Paul yet. But for Jindal, it was over. He announced on Fox News that his bid for the presidency is over. He also took a shot at Ted Cruz and Donald Trump for making the party too damn extreme. No one gave two fucks about him and when he exits the governor's mansion in January, he'll be regarded as one of the worst governors in Louisiana history. That stings because most thought Democrat governor Kathleen Blanco did far worse. Jindal even had the worst luck as a candidate. His real name is Piyush. Many Republicans would have questioned his citizenship or claim he's a Muslim. Jindal is a devout Catholic. His family wasn't even inspired by the lackluster campaign. In the announcement video, Jindal's children looked bored and not even concerned about their dad's big news. Jindal who was really unfavorable in the state of Louisiana gave the Democrats an opportunity to win the governorship in a deeply red state.

The shooting in San Bernardino. The terrorists Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik went into the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California, with 14 dead and 18 injured. The terrorists targeted a party for employees of the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health, held in an auditorium with at least 100 people, before fleeing in an SUV. In the wake of tragedies, the Republicans don't want President Barack Obama to "politiicize" a tragedy for gains. But given that the terrorists may have been inspired by the Islamic State, expect Republicans to "politicize" this. They will find ways to pressure military involvement back in Iraq and Syria. They want the American military to stop the Islamic State but offer no direct strategy to taking the extremist group.

Graham laughed it off and made a campaign video mocking the whole ordeal. The ordeal didn't help him get out of the slum. He was polling at less than 1 percent.
