    Chris Christie on John Kasich: “He’s a backstabber and he’s untruthful guy”, “exhausting”
    Listen to this article

    John Kasich (did you know his dad was a mailman?) is part of that little clique of former and would-be public officials who won’t go away and who are forever swaying like a reeds in the wind towards whomever is willing to pay.

    Not too long ago, Kasich and a handful of his campaign alumni joined up with the Lincoln Project, the Never Trump outfit working to oust Republicans. Shortly thereafter, Kasich was granted another brief moment in the limelight with a speaking spot at the DNC.

    Crossroads, fork in the road, but what’s the difference, right? Not that words or meanings or standards or principles actually matter or anything…

    Anyway, Former NJ Governor Chris Christie, who also ran for president in 2016 along with Kasich (who was then still claiming to be a Republican), had some choice words about Kasich during a political analysis segment on ABC news.


    The transcript:

    Stephanopoulos: “How big a threat are these Republican endorsements tonight?”

    Christie: “Zero. Zero. I mean, they’re meaningless. They were with her, they were With Her 4 years ago, now they’re with Biden, no surprise. And John Kasich, just to show you where John Kasich’s standing is in the Republican party — when he was the only Republican Governor left on the stage in 2016, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and John Kasich, the three candidates left — do you know how many Republican Governors, his colleagues, his sitting colleagues endorsed John Kasich? Zero. And the reason they didn’t endorse him is because he’s a backstabber and he’s an untruthful guy. So tonight, Republicans are gonna look at that and go, ‘You can have him.’ … on top of all of that, I’ve worked with John a lot, he’s exhausting. Joe Biden is going to be getting calls from John Kasich, he’s going to want to change his phone number.”

    In another segment, Christie was asked whether Republican endorsements helped to sway anyone or bring them over, to which he answered “no.”

    Kasich has always been a POS. Nothing new here except that he is coming further out of the closet.

    He had my attention until he started in on that nonsense of Michelle Obama’s speech being effective. Then, I stopped listening.
