Donald Trump seems to have gotten bored of John Kasich, as he wasted little time talking about the fellow presidential hopeful while campaigning in Ohio. The two had been at each other’s throats for quite a few days now, but for some reason, Trump decided to back off while in the Governor’s state.
A bully never expects anyone to fight back. And tonight you saw what happens when we did. See you on the trail, Mr. Trump.

However, Kasich perceived it as a victory over Trump, tweeting, “A bully never expects anyone to fight back. And tonight you saw what happens when we did. See you on the trail, Mr. Trump.” This probably came in response to Trump’s earlier tweet that read, “Going to Ohio, home of one of the worst presidential candidates in history–Kasich. Can’t debate, loves #ObamaCare–dummy!”

While Kasich may have thought that his tweet showed power, it actually resulted in Trump fans lashing out at him even more! They left insensitive comments on his post, like, “Why is a guy that nobody knows with 0% in the polls starting sh*t? Geee I smell corruption! Idiots [sic],” and one even told him to give up, writing, “@JohnKasich it’s time to throw in the towel! It’s over! You seem very angry and jealous! You need to drop out!” Despite the harsh words, they did have have a point, given that Trump’s fan following in Ohio is significant—14,000 people turned up to see him live.
What wasn’t justified though, was that Trump continued to stand by his belief of waterboarding (a form of torture) terrorist suspects. Probably the most controversial Republican candidate in the history of the presidential race, Trump’s hour-long Ohio speech also targeted Syrian refugees—or as he called them, “anchor babies”—claiming that Americans needed to “create lists.” Another outrageous theory posed by him was that the Paris attacks would not have happened had common people possessed more arms.
And while last month Kasich was leading Ohio, this month Trump has taken over. We wonder if this presidential race could get any more interesting or twisted.
