Ohio Governor John Kasich, who officially entered the crowded GOP field on Tuesday, told Sean Hannity that Hillary Clinton attended the party in 1997 when he became engaged to his wife Karen.
Sean Hannity, who interviewed Kasich after his announcement on Tuesday, asked the Ohio governor about comments he’s made downplaying the IRS and Benghazi scandals.
“You said, ‘I’m more worried about how we’re going to fix America than Hillary’s email server and you said, ‘I don’t believe you beat her by talking about Benghazi or her emails–”
“No, you don’t,” Kasich interrupted Hannity.
While he said these issues would likely come up in a campaign, Kasich said, “My opinion, the Republican that can best articulate a big
Kasich trailed off, but then added, “Look, I’ve known Hillary a long time. When I got engaged to be married she came to the party, OK? ”
Hannity asked if Kasich agrees with the fifty-seven percent of Americans who find Hillary to be dishonest and untrustworthy.
“I’m not going to start questioning people’s honesty or — I just don’t do that, Sean. I mean, where does that get us?” Kasich said. “I want the county to be unified.”
“Let’s put the country first and the personal attacks second,” he added. “We can all have opinions, but I don’t want to be a voice of negativity in America. I want to be a voice of positivity in America.”
The ’90s called — they want John Kasich back. He seems to be under the false impression that nothing has changed since he served in Congress in the 1990s, when for the briefest moment in time, Newt Gingrich was able to back Bill Clinton and the Democrats into a corner on welfare reform and kumbaya reigned supreme in Washington. For like thirteen seconds.
Kasich is living under the faulty belief that a campaign in the year 2016 can be powered by peace, love, and out-of-context Bible quotes. But should he become the GOP nominee, we will see him armed only with these weapons on the debate stage with Hillary.
Kasich will lean in for a hug and Clinton will stab him in the jugular with an ink pen. At least the race will be over quickly and we won’t have to drag the whole blasted thing out until November.
