Ohio Governor John Kasich has no chance of becoming the Republican nominee for president and his campaign is facing increasing calls to drop out of the race, but Kasich seems determined to keep going.
There is every indication that a contested convention would be an epic disaster that could literally spark riots in the streets of Cleveland — a scenario the city of Cleveland is preparing for — but Kasich says a contested convention would be fun for the whole family.
Kasich spoke to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos and said the coming shitstorm will draw the attention of The Youngs who love the Kardashians.
“We just have to keep going and we’re going to have an open convention. And, George, you’re the guy that gets open conventions. It’s going to be so much fun,” Kasich said. “Kids will spend less time focusing on Bieber and Kardashian and more time focusing on how we elect presidents. It will be so cool.“
I have no doubt a pro-Trump riot in Cleveland would draw the attention of the entire country, but not for good reasons.
It’s increasingly clear to me the Republican party is completely fucked this year regardless of who they nominate at their convention. I’m not saying Democrats should be complacent (personally, I can hardly wait to vote for the first woman to be president) but let’s face it, the GOP is screwed. Democrats should focus on down ticket races where the Republican party will be vulnerable under an extraordinarily weak nominee.
