In Full Frontal on Monday, Samantha Bee considered “the nauseating bus terminal restroom that is the Republican primary” yesterday and took aim at John Kasich, who “initially seems like the least disgusting stall.”
“Is Kasich really the huggable moderate he’s made out be?”, Bee asks, before taking a look at his record on gay rights, reminding everyone that before the SCOTUS marriage case was called Obergefell v. Hodges, it was called Obergefell v. Kasich, “after the governor who refused to recognize the out-of-state marriage of two gay men, one of whom was terminally ill.”
Bee then takes apart Kasich’s record on reproductive rights, his habit of hiding abortion restrictions in budget bills, his gag orders against rape counselors, and his opinion on Roe v Wade, that it “sort of” legalized abortion.
“GOP, take a closer look at John Kasich. Because while these other chumps make empty promises to do awful stuff, the so-called moderate gets awful stuff done.”
