In a recent CNN interview, former presidential candidate John Kasich said this about Trump:
This is very disturbing. I wish that I could be fully enthusiastic, but I can’t be. I don’t know what’s going to happen at the end.
I’ve had a lot of people pound on me about you need to do this, you need to do this, this is about the party. And I love my party, but I love my country. And I have to be true to myself. I wish that I could be fully enthusiastic. I can’t be.
What the hell happened to John Kasich?
Glenn asked that very question Monday on his radio program.
"What was he doing? I mean, was he really that delusional that he thought he could win?" Glenn asked.
Kasich was clearly a spoiler for Ted Cruz, but the timing of his exit from the race is beyond curious. With Ted Cruz out of the way, it was his time to rise. Instead, he dropped out.
"He is probably the most confusing out of this entire year. Would you agree with that? He's the one piece that I can't figure out. I think I have Trump figured out. I know I have Hillary Clinton figured out. I have Rubio figured out. Jeb Bush I have figured out," Glenn said. "Kasich, I can't figure out what the hell he was doing."
Listener Tony called in from Ohio with his own theory on Kasich.
"I just believe that Kasich wants to run in four years. He knows if Cruz gets the nomination, he . . . becomes president, very easily beats Hillary because of her activities, and he doesn't get his shot. But Kasich knows he doesn't have the name recognition, the gravitas. He figures, he runs, he loses, but he stays in as long as he can to get his name out there. And he wants Trump to get the nomination because he knows Trump will get slaughtered. That means in four years, he gets the shot," Tony said.
Tony may have nailed it.
"Wow. That's actually logical," Glenn said. "And you know him. You live in the state. Is he that conniving and that nasty?"
Tony answered succinctly.
"I think that everything you need to know about John Kasich, you learned by watching the video of him talk about the highway patrolman who pulled him over," Tony said. "Four years later, and this guy is still steaming and burning about this."
"It actually makes a lot of sense," Stu said.
