Ohio Gov. John Kasich went after the Trump White House on MSNBC Tuesday for being “like a soap opera.”


“I don’t know why they couldn’t have gotten along, really, better,” he said in reference to President Trum and outgoing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

“I mean, I think Tillerson’s a smart guy, sophisticated. But it didn’t fit. The concern I have is and I’m sure Bob would feel the same way, if you have too much staff change, it’s hard to function. And it’s different, you know, as a senator it’s one thing. Congressman, senator, I mean, you could have all these changes.”

“When you have an executive position, like you’re governor, and you have all these people quitting all the time, early on in your administration, it’s hard to get anything done, get traction, have a cohesive anything. And so that’s kind of the problem I see here with everything, all the chaos and everything that we’re observing, Stephanie. It’s certainly unique. I mean, it’s like–in some ways, it’s like a soap opera. The only thing is–you turn back on two weeks from now if you don’t watch, it’s kind of the same thing. It’s really amazing.” (RELATED: ‘Eternally Grateful’ — Rex Tillerson Honors U.S. Armed Forces As He Steps Down AS Secretary Of State)
