Sometimes you come across a story that makes you cringe so hard your muscles seize.
And this story from BuzzFeed is a cringe-a-palooza.
John Kasich, son of a mailman, believes his ticket to 2020 success is to appeal to millennials.

From the Buzzfeed article:
Kasich loves the millennials, a term he uses liberally, seemingly to describe anyone under the age of 40. He sees potential voters who are embarrassed by Trump and open to a responsible conservative who’s moved, as Kasich has in recent months, to the left on gun control in response to deadly mass shootings.
Kasich’s new conversation pieces range from HQ, the mobile trivia game, to YouTube celebrity Logan Paul (who entered the wider public consciousness after he filmed a video inside a Japanese “suicide forest”). He also wants you to know he listens to Justin Bieber, dropping the pop star’s name too often (a statehouse press conference, a New York Magazine interview, a ride-along with the Weekly Standard) for it to be a coincidence.
“This social media is really fascinating to me, whether it’s YouTube, whether it’s some sort of YouTube channel, I don’t know,” Kasich said as he promised to step up his Twitter game. “I have a million Twitter followers, which I think is really cool.”
Okay, this is more painful than Hillary Clinton telling a black urban radio audience that she carries hot sauce.
Just wait till they see his Karate-chop-speaking style.
I know John will like it because it’s from “some sort of YouTube channel.”
I’d be embarrassed for John Kasich. But he’s such a sanctimonious clown, why should I?
What Kasich is actually hoping to do here is to appeal to Democrat voters by being, well, a Democrat.
But why vote for a Republican who’s trying to pass himself off as a Democrat when you could just vote for the Democrat?
Besides, first Kasich would have to beat Trump in a primary challenge.
And Republican millennials aren’t like their Leftist counterparts.
They’re pro-gun, anti-SJW and anti-Political correctness. And unless John Kasich wants to start sharing Paul Joseph Watson’s videos from “some sort of a YouTube channel” on his cool Twitter account, I doubt they’ll pay him any mind.
