And Then There Was Trump

Illustration for article titled And Then There Was Trump

John Kasich, who has never come close to being a front-runner in the Republican contest and never quite seemed to mind, will finally suspend his campaign after finishing a very distant third in the Indiana primary.


This news follows Ted Cruz’s decision Tuesday night to suspend his campaign following Donald Trump’s Indiana win. Kasich’s only primary win came in his home state of Ohio, where he has crushed abortion access, neglected the state’s infrastructure, and harassed a police officer for giving him a traffic ticket. More recently, he has been seen scarfing down literally every food item in his path with the reckless and joyful abandon of a 15-year-old football player who was lost in the woods for 3 days.

And now our attention must, unfortunately, turn entirely to presumptive Republican nominee Donald J. Trump, the sculpture your three-year-old made out of soggy ground-up goldfish snacks.

Kasich will reportedly be making a statement at 5 PM EST.

I actually had to completely reevaluate a friendship yesterday because I was texting my friend and she literally said “I think trump can do great things for white people and I support him” it genuinely threw me for a loop
