Samantha Bee just ended the John Kasich charade: "In the nauseating bus terminal restroom that is the Republican primary, Kasich initially seems like the least disgusting stall"

Kasich hides his rigid pro-life beliefs "like a desperate, pregnant teenager buying ever-larger sweatshirts"

After a turbulent "Late Show" appearance a couple of weeks ago, the cracks in Ohio Gov. John Kasich's foundation are becoming more pronounced. "Full Frontal" host Samantha Bee did her part last night in dispelling the myth of Kasich the "moderate."

"In the nauseating bus terminal restroom that is the Republican primary, John Kasich initially seems like the least disgusting stall," Bee began. "But is Kasich really the huggable moderate he's made out to be?"

Bee noted the candidate's scarcely mentioned record on gay marriage ("Obergefell v. Hodges, the Supreme Court case that legalized same-sex marriage, was originally called Obergefell v. Kasich") and reproductive rights (citing Michael Gonidakis, president of Ohio Right to Life, who said, "There is no candidate running for president who has done more for the pro-life movement than John Kasich").

"If you live outside Ohio, you don't hear much about Kasich's anti-choice record because he hides his abortion restrictions in larger budget bills, where they won't be noticed," Bee added. "Kind of like a desperate, pregnant teenager buying ever-larger sweatshirts."
