Kasich on Flynn pardon: ‘Tomorrow’s Thanksgiving, Can We Just Move On a Little Bit?’

2 min read

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want John Kasich to be nominated for a Biden cabinet position.

His chants of “Lock her up” during the run-up to the 2016 election were nothing but hideous, and it plagues this nation to this very day.

Trump has weaponized it against powerful women such as the sitting Governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer, so effectively that white terrorists attempted to kidnap and hold a public execution.

And Flynn is a traitor. That's not me talking. That's what Judge U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan posited during a sentencing hearing  “Arguably, you sold your country out,” he said.

Why doesn’t Kasich see the obvious as well? Flynn fessed up in court that he had lied about his contacts with Russia. Game. Set.Match. I truly hope this is the final nail in the coffin on Kasich’s chance for a cabinet position.

Amid the outrage over President Donald Trump pardoning Michael Flynn, John Kasich was more dismissive on CNN Wednesday evening and said the country should just move on.

Jim Acosta asked Kasich what his message would be to fellow Republicans about the pardon, given that a number of them are publicly celebrating the pardon.

“Let’s get on with all this,” Kasich said. “The president’s lost.”

He said every president has the power to issue pardons and said there’s likely more coming — “that’s what president’s do.”

“He’s done, he’s going to leave. The transition has started. Let’s just move on,” Kasich said. “I think it’s time to start healing. I mean, tomorrow’s Thanksgiving, can we just like move on a little bit?”
