The billionaire front-runner branded the Ohioan ‘1-for-38 Kasich’ on Sunday, the latest in a series of demeaning nicknames he’s adopted for his rivals.
Monday morning he updated it to ‘1-for-41 Kasich’ after his aides reminded him to factor in a few small American territories where he and other candidates have beaten the governor.
‘You can’t give it to Kasich,’ Trump said of the potential for a ‘contested’ floor fight in July’s Republican National Convention. ‘Because you can’t give it to a guy who by that time will be one in 50 or something.’|'”Ladies and gentlemen, our new nominee is John Kasich!”‘ he mocked some future public address announcer saying. ‘”He’s won one state out of 50!”‘
‘How do you do that?’ Trump asked. ‘How do you do it?
Later, he criticized Texas Sen. Ted Cruz as a do-nothing lawmaker better known for filibustering than for passing legislation.
He said Cruz’s fellow senators considered him a ‘pain in the a**.’
