Totally Hilarious: Chris Christie’s New Book Notes Why ‘Everyone Despises John Kasich’

Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has a tell-all book coming out and one of the most amusing bits in it is the time Christi says he found out exactly why everyone hates Ohio Governor John Kasich.

Seriously. Who doesn’t have an innate feeling that John Kasich is the biggest jerk in politics? We even got a feel for that this week in the story of the woman who lost her plane seat to the obstreperous former Ohio gov.

One segment of Christie’s new book, “Let Me Finish,” details Christie’s conversations with Kasich after the New Hampshire Primary in 2016, Daily Caller reported.

You will recall that Christie did very badly in that contest coming in at a distant sixth place. Kasich, though, finished second but still behind Donald Trump by a healthy amount.

According to Christie, here is how that conversation went:

He asked how I was doing. I told him, okay, considering. “You know what happened to you, don’t you, Chris?” he said.

I told him I didn’t.

“God wanted you to play right field, and you insisted on playing shortstop. No matter how many times God told you to play right field, you insisted on playing shortstop. And last night, you went out to shortstop, and the ball went through your legs.”

Right there, I understood why so many people in politics despised John Kasich. . . .

“And John,” I asked, “what does God have in mind for you?”

He didn’t hesitate. “I think you’re going to see that very clearly over the next couple of months.”

What the heck does this “shortstop” business even mean?

Anyway, the arrogance revealed in this tale really drives home the sort of arrogance we all saw coming from Kasich on the national stage.

Naturally, Kasich is claiming that Christie’s anecdote is “pure fiction” and that it never happened.

But, the incident sure strikes one as a perfect example of John Kasich. Thank God his political career is now over.
