[Ed. – Granted, it’s Kasich, and it’s just so flat-footed geek-boy. But can’t we have a little multicultural diversity and tolerance, people?]
During a stop at a pizza joint in New York on Wednesday, John Kasich drew the mock ire of locals and reporters on Twitter as he used a fork.
On Thursday, Kasich explained himself.
“Look, look, the pizza came scalding hot, OK? And so I use a little fork,” the governor of Ohio told ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “You know what? My wife who is on spring break with my daughters said, ’I’m proud of you. You finally learned how to use a utensil properly.’ But I mean — not only did I eat the pizza, I had the hot sausage. It was fantastic.”
Kasich, apparently recognizing his error, finished up using his hands, although he did not fold over the slice, as is customary.
“But here’s what I’ve learned — I came to New York, there were like 100 press people there. Get ready, John, because I’ll be spending a lot of time in New York,” he joked, referring to himself in the third person.
