Former Ohio Governor John Kasich has always pretended that he cares about the little people. But one of those little people is claiming that Kasich stole her plane seat when he refused to be downgraded to economy on a flight to San Francisco.
Kasich, who claims to be a moderate who cares about “all duh peoples,” was furious when he was about to be knocked out of his First-Class seat on an Alaska Airlines flight. He was being bumped to make room for a pilot who had to be taken to a Kasich’s destination in San Francisco.
According to the Daily Mail:
Kasich, 66, was flying from JFK in New York to San Francisco on January 16 – two weeks after handing over the governorship and his access to state planes to Mark DeWine – when he took comedian Julie Klausner’s seat.
According to Klausner, who shared details of their run-in on Twitter and later in a podcast, Kasich had been behaving ‘like an a**hole’ long before they even boarded the plane and was talking obnoxiously on his cell phone in the airline’s first-class lounge.
Kaich boarded first and was told then that his seat was being given to a pilot, so he would have to take a seat in premium economy.
But that seat was bought by comedienne Julie Klausner.
When Klausner finally boarded, she says she stood there at what was supposed to be her seat while Kasich just ignored her.
According to Klausner, she eventually decided just to take a later flight because Kasich was reusing to budge and let her take the seat she paid for.
Say, did you know that John Kasich’s dad was a mailman? He may have forgotten to tell Klausner that humanizing fact.
Despite having a disastrous run for president in 20116, Kasich is still playing around with another run or the White House. Kasich will never be president
Naturally, he is now an employee of CNN, where all Trump-hating, self-loathing Republicans go to work after a failed run for president and years of attacking Trump.
