Chris Christie bashed John Kasich in his new book,Â â€œLet Me Finish”:
He asked how I was doing. I told him, okay, considering. â€œYou know what happened to you, donâ€™t you, Chris?â€ he said.
I told him I didnâ€™t.
â€œGod 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.â€
Right there, I understood why so many people in politics despised John Kasich. . . .
â€œAnd John,â€ I asked, â€œwhat does God have in mind for you?â€
He didnâ€™t hesitate. â€œI think youâ€™re going to see that very clearly over the next couple of months.â€
Kasich spokesman Chris Schrimpf, in an email Thursday, disputed Christieâ€™s account.
According to Schrimpf, Kasich and Christie had a roughly 30-second phone call after the New Hampshire primary, during which Kasich wished Christie well and said he considered him a friend.
â€œThe anecdote may make for a nice story in a book, but itâ€™s fiction,â€ Schrimpf stated.
This is and will always be a he said she said claim but it is hard for me not to believe Christie on this subject. Kasich has a long history of virtue signaling in public and using God to defend his political beliefs. If you aren’t a Kasich moderate then he thinks you are immoral.
