Gov. John Kasich (“R”-Ohio) is shopping for contracts with leftist cable news networks for when his tenure in office comes to a merciful end.
“Kasich has signaled to close advisors and some donors that he is looking to sign with either CNN or MSNBC as he finishes his two-term tenure as Ohio’s governor, according to three people with knowledge of the conversations, including two who have been close to the governor since his 2016 presidential run,” CNBC reports.
Kasich, a staunch member of the #NeverTrump crowd, spent less time governing over the past two years than bashing President Donald J. Trump. Kasich is a pro-amnesty “Republican” whose biggest beef with Trump is that Trump wants to secure the southern border. Monday is his last day in office as governor of the Buckeye State.
Kasich has signed with United Talent Agency, who will assist him in finding a new gig. He has frequently appeared on CNN, though in the early 2000’s he hosted a show on Fox News, and even used to fill in for former cable news titan Bill O’Reilly.
“We’re thrilled to work with Governor Kasich as he looks to the future by bringing his unique experience, wisdom and perspective to an even wider array of audiences,” the agency reportedly said.
The two-term governor is reportedly still considering a 2020 presidential bid. One person close to Kasich reportedly said that his interest in a television job does not mean that he has given up is presidential aspirations.
“Very seriously. I’m considering it,” Kasich told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos in November. “These are earnest conversations that go on virtually every day with some of my friends, with my family.”
He has often touted the potential for a third-party ticket to reach voters who are “in the middle” of the political spectrum, as if no one has ever had that idea before. Kasich has tried to ride the fence his entire political career, which mostly adds up to selling out his Republican constituency to the political left in the name of “compromise.” The Democrats never seem to return that favor.
“Let’s just say that Donald Trump is nominated and Elizabeth Warren is nominated, and you have this ocean of people who sit in the middle,” he told ABC. “Is there a legitimate opportunity for a third party, bipartisan kind of ticket to be able to – to score a victory or to have a profound impact on the future of American politics?”
Kasich is a twice-failed presidential candidate, having run in 2000 an 2016. Perhaps a third failure will solidify for him the fact that weakness is no longer standard operating procedure for the GOP.

AG Bill Barr Calls Out Mainstream Media for Hydroxychloroquine ‘Jihad’
The media is furious that Trump suggested use of the drug.
Attorney General Bill Barr expressed his disappointment with the mainstream media’s coverage of the coronavirus epidemic when speaking to Fox News’ Laura Ingraham on Wednesday, pointing to what he called a ‘jihad’ on the media’s part over the President’s suggestion of hydroxychloroquine being used to treat the disease.
“It’s very disappointing because I think the president went out at the beginning of [the coronavirus pandemic] and really was statesmanlike, trying to bring people together, working with all the governors,” said Barr of the federal government’s coronavirus response. “Keeping his patience as he as he got these snarky, gotcha questions from the White House media pool and the stridency of the partisan attacks on him has gotten higher and higher.”
The media has pushed hysterical claims of medical malpractice against President Trump for suggesting that hydroxychloroquine could prove useful in treating the disease- a claim backed up by many prominent figures in the medical and scientific community, some of whom recount using the drug to great effectiveness in treating coronavirus patients.
“The media has been on a jihad to discredit the drug. It’s quite strange.”
Barr totally ruled out the notion of issuing government certificates certifying citizens as coronavirus-free, an idea increasingly favored by liberal globalists and enacted to some extent in Germany.
The Attorney General also lamented the economic costs of the virus in America, reiterating President Trump’s desire that the cost not be worse than the disease. “We cannot keep for a long period of time our economy shut down just on the public health thing… So we have to find after the 30-day period, we have to find a way of allowing businesses to adapt to this situation and figure out how they can best get started.”
Barr’s remarks may suggest the federal government may be increasingly willing to consider working to roll back the disruptions to everyday life by the end of April.
“I’m not suggesting we stop social distancing overnight… There may come a time where we have to worry less about that. I don’t know when that will be.”
