Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich said Tuesday on “Morning Joe” he thinks attacks against the press are spiraling out of control and believes a biased media is better than no press at all.
Kasich claimed there was no middle ground, and people had to choose between one extreme and the other.
“The attacks, even on the press, Joe, and I hear it from everybody. Very intelligent people. The press is biased! I say, okay, what would you rather have? No press?” Kasich said.
Kasich also commented on President Donald Trump’s upcoming State of The Union address and found a way to pivot towards himself to praise his performance as governor.
“What is going to happen is people on the hard right and people on the hard left, they’ll both — both sides will hear exactly what they want to hear,” he said. “What’s going to be critical is the follow up. What are we going to do with DACA? What are we going to do with trade? What are we going to do with Russian sanctions? These are the things that will matter over time and one simple speech. And look I’ve been there.”
“Just making a couple speeches, that wasn’t going to bring people along,” Kasich concluded. “They had to see action and they had to see the fact that what I was saying, I would stand behind it. And that’s the key for tonight. It’s a much different state of the union. Because in my lifetime, I’ve never seen this country divided like this. This is astounding to me.”
