John Kasich skewers Donald Trump’s “silly” rigged election claims

Former Republican presidential candidate and Ohio Gov. John Kasich is hitting back against the claim that the election is “rigged” — an allegation that GOP nominee Donald Trump has repeatedly made in recent days.

When asked in an interview with “CBS This Morning” early Wednesday whether he believed Trump’s assertion of a cooked election was correct, Kasich replied with an emphatic “no.”

“Look, to say that elections are rigged and all these votes are stolen — that’s like saying we never landed on the moon, frankly,” said Kasich. “That’s how silly it is.”

The Ohio governor further criticized Trump’s position for sowing paranoia about the integrity of democratic institutions.

“I don’t think it’s good for our country, for our democracy, and I don’t believe we have any massive fraud,” Kasich said. “We don’t have that. That’s just a silly argument.”

“The problem is it does create doubt in people’s minds and I worry about 25 percent of Americans who may say when the election’s over that it was stolen,” he added. “That is a big, fat joke.”

Kasich joins the growing chorus of voices blasting Trump’s unfounded claims — a group that includes House Speaker Paul Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican.

This rotten, lily-livered skunk should watch the O’Keefe video, and then explain himself.

So says the creep who went nearly face-twisting bananas when he thought he was cheated out of three minutes time in the primary debates.

This idiot doesn’t realize that the election can be rigged other than from the ballot box. Is he saying Bernie Saunders loss wasn’t rigged.

How can people like this get elected to office?

This guy is stupid….

Oh, and btw, did they ask him about the $200K Soros donation to his campaign?

NRinO did an article saying the same thing. I love how the very same day the second video with Bob Creamer confirms that they ARE rigging the vote, and have for decades!
