Ohio Gov. John Kasich got angry Monday and grabbed the recorder from a reporter who was asking why Kasich should be the nominee if he’s only won one state.

Demetri Sevastopulo of the Financial Times interrupted Kasich as he was saying, “Listen, at the end of the day I think the Republican Party wants to pick somebody who actually can win in the fall.”

Sevastupolo said, “If you’ve only won Ohio…”

“Can I finish?” Kasich said cutting off the reporter. Sevastopulo than said, “If you answer the question.” Kasich said, “I’m answering the question the way I want to answer it. You want to answer it?” The Ohio governor then grabbed the reporter’s voice recorder and said, “Here let me ask you the question. What do you think?”

Sevastopulo said, “I think you should answer the question.”
