Donald Trump's feud with Bobby Jindal escalates

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal launched a Twitter tirade against Republican frontrunner Donald Trump on Friday, continuing a 24-hour assault on the business mogul that's skewered him on everything from his hair to his policy positions.

It started with Jindal's charge during Thursday's press conference at the National Press Club that Trump was "shallow," a "narcissist and an egomaniac," and a "non-serious carnival act."

The real estate mogul fired back on Twitter later that day, saying that "Bobby Jindal did not make the debate stage and therefore I have never met him" and that he would "only respond to people that register more than 1% in the polls."

"I never thought he had a chance and I've been proven right," Trump's tweet read.

In response, Jindal mocked the businessman with a line Trump has popularly used to criticize candidates like Jeb Bush.

"I'm disappointed," he tweeted. "Is this the best you can do? Are you suffering from low energy today?"

The Louisiana governor later wrote a message that "we have met. You wrote a check. A fool & his money are soon parted. A fool & his dad's money are parted sooner."

On Thursday afternoon, Jindal then weighed in on Trump making fun of Carly Fiorina's looks, telling CBS News later that day that the billionaire "should stop attacking other people's appearances."

"I think it's pretty outrageous for him to be attacking anybody's appearance," Jindal told CBS News White House Correspondent Major Garrett, especially "when he looks like he's got a squirrel sitting on his head."

On Friday morning, Trump took to Twitter, responding to Jindal's slam of his hair and sarcastically calling it "so original."

Since then, Jindal has gone on to MSNBC to criticize Trump for having "no substance."

"He is not for making America great. He's for making Donald Trump great," he said. "That's not what we need right now."

Jindal is trailing in the polls and will not appear on CNN's primetime debate stage for the GOP's second presidential debate. The network's second-tier debate will include Jindal, along with former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, former New York governor George Pataki, and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham. Trump will be center stage on the CNN's top debate.
