The GOP presidential hopeful also demanded both Boehner and McConnell “surrender their gavels."

He additionally called for the entire House of Representatives to be ousted.

“That’s one down, that’s 434 more to go,” Jindal said. “Folks, it is time to fire everybody in D.C.”

Boehner unexpectedly announced Friday morning that he would resign from Congress at the end of October.

Jindal has previously attacked congressional Republicans over their inability to defund Planned Parenthood, saying at the second GOP presidential debate that “it is time to be done with the Republican Party.”
