You really have to hand it to John Kasich — this delusional creep is still running for president, despite finishing in last place in just about every available race. We’re not just talking about losing, here. It’s as if he set out to run a marathon, disappeared for a decade, then re-emerged with a long beard to finally crawl across the finish line … backwards.
It’s probably not helping that he’s making disastrous appearances like his recent Q&A at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, where an audience member asked him a bunch of questions on LGBT topics. Are we born gay, the man wanted to know, and Kasich answered:
“You know, sir, probably. I mean, I don’t, I don’t know how it all works, Okay? I mean, look. Are they? You know, probability they are. Okay?” Well, great, thanks for clearing that up. You clearly have a firm grasp on the situation, John.
For what it’s worth, he also seemed resistant to bathroom-bans for trans people, saying, “I think we should just try to, like, take a chill pill, relax, and try to get along with one another a little bit better instead of trying to write some law to solve a problem that doesn’t frankly exist in big enough numbers to justify more lawmaking.”
He makes a good point — there are no cases of predators using trans access to bathroom as an excuse to molest anyone. There are, on the other hand, plenty of cases of Republican politicians committing sex crimes, so maybe we ought to ban them.
Kasich is still dragging his feet through the dark ages, and recently opposed marriage equality and adoption for same-sex couples. He’s also referred to the “gay lifestyle” and said that openly gay soldiers should be thrown out of the military. And then he says that he’s attended a wedding for a gay couple, as if that entitles him to some kind of tolerance trophy. Good grief. John Kasich can’t even bigot properly.
