A child grows up to be similar to its parents, both in behavior and in physical characteristics

Two Italian Americans were killed, in fact, clobbered to death by hooded Klansmen
- see details below in section - Donald Trump's hood and gown-clad father arrested at a violent Klan riot -
Despite decades of vehement denials by Donald Trump that his father was never associated with the KKK, it seems that not only was Fred Trump an active participant in Klan activities, he was arrested in full Klan regalia, hood and gown, during a 1927 Memorial Day Klan riot in Queens in which two Italian Americans were killed, in fact, clobbered to death by hooded Klansmen.
Donald Trump is not the only illiberal to hypocritically denounce the KKK, witness John Kasich
Under Kasich, racial resentment and intolerance was one of Ohio's principal exports
Kasich worked with Ohio's White Nationalist Alliance to preserve three Civil War Statues
After two terms of Kasich (K-sick) as Ohio's governor, Cincinnati one of the four principal cities of Ohio, had become the childhood poverty capital of the United States. While Kasich boasted of his ability to balance the budget. At least, now we know how he did it.
It is noteworthy that almost to the day that President Biden announced the passage of the Child Tax Credit, which will bring nearly half of all children in the United States - including the children plunged into poverty by the deliberate policies of Governor Kasich - out of poverty, CNN named John 'rosy cheeks' Kasich - don't worry, now that it has been brought to your attention you will see it - as a senior correspondent.
One can but imagine that King, Tapper, Blitzer and Kasich will revel in their roles as stars on the Comedy News Network - the most trusted name in news.
The 20 year old neo-Nazi who killed a young woman during a KKK riot in Charlottesville, Virginia, grew up in Kasich's Ohio. It is perhaps a sign of our times that the press has not investigated the killer's activities in his native Ohio. Moral authority, the core essential ingredient upon which the tenets of the American Republic rely, has been mortally wounded by the likes of Trump and Kasich, Ryan, McCarthy, Meadows, Portman and McConnell.
The road back to one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all, will be a slow and painful process.
Kasich stated that we could not abandon the president of the United States, Donald Trump.
This author begs to differ, those of sound mind and judgement will stand for justice and realize that Trump had to be removed from office, whether judicially or at the ballot box.
Kasich is not of sound mind and judgement, by the above criteria.
Kasich is more interested in his chances to aspire to the presidency, than with standing for what this great nation does; life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We do not need to replace one illiberal, with another one.
Kasich used the power of the governor's office to go after those who protested against his historic all-white cabinet, calling them quota supporters and scoffing that “I don’t pay attention to my critics" - neither does Donald Trump. However, Kasich was unable to quell the opposition to his rather obvious white nationalist cabinet and sought to correct what he called an oversight by adding two black directors to his administrative team. In other words, the establishment of an all white cabinet was true Kasich. The hurried addition of two black administrators in the face of the ensuing uproar, stands as a repudiation and public disapproval of Kasich's white nationalist agenda.
As widely reported in the press, in his first month as governor, Kasich set out to settle some old scores. He complained about a three-year-old ticket for passing too close to an emergency vehicle by questioning the intelligence of the officer who had pulled him over and ticketed him. And although, Kasich later apologized to the officer, a couple of months later he signed a bill that stripped most collective-bargaining rights from the police, fire as well as teachers' unions.
Justifiably, Kasich and all the other social nationalists in this country will be relegated to the ash pile of history. And, the idea that Pence is a worthy replacement, ignores his inability to acknowledge the extra-legal lynching's in Grant County, Indiana. And, the fact that he was willing to lie for the white supremacist son of a white supremacist son of immigrants, who may have been involved in murder personally during a KKK riot in Queens, New York City. And, if not personally, he went to that riot, donning his Klan robe and pointed head cover, with the intent of doing harm with his fellow Klan members to Roman Catholics. And, two Italian Roman Catholics died as a result of the Klan club-wielding violence that ensued.
Kasich, albeit feebly, attempts to appeal to the same slice of the American electorate that Donald Trump does, and for the same reasons; white-protestant nationalism, cruelty and bigotry.
Ohio does not need to export anymore Kasich-inspired racial resentment, intolerance and violence.
Kasich is joining a stellar organization at CNN and a cast of above-reproach presenters and commentators.
It must not go unnoticed that at the highest level of the CNN organization, working with a former Ohio congressman, arrangements had been made for Fareed Zakaria to host the President of Ukraine on air, where the president was to announce that the Ukraine would be investigating Biden and his son. No satisfactory explanation for this obvious trumped up attempt to support the Republican candidate has been forthcoming, but suffice it to know that among those in the know, Zakaria has no credible reputation whatsoever, none.
And, let us not forget Chris Cuomo, who stated on air that the Donald Trump that we know today, was not the same Donald Trump as he was over the decades that the Cuomo and Trump families were close. This is the same drama queen, Chris Cuomo, who tried to dub his brother as 'America's Governor', and later against all journalistic ethics helped his under siege brother write press releases that would be aired on CNN.
Also, let us consider Brianna Keilar's - big lie, which is the subject of a separate article - bookmark and watch this space.
With the addition of John Kasich to the CNN lineup of stars, one might consider the demise of Rick Santorum, who while running for the presidency claimed that the majority of assistance recipients in Iowa were from the racialized communities.
In April the stars of CNN and their highly toted medical correspondents were telling us how well India was handling the pandemic, which we learned in May was less than an accurate portrayal of actual circumstances in India.
John Kasich will fit in at CNN, perfectly.
