Talk about sour grapes. Despite never realistically coming close to becoming the GOP nominee, former Republican candidate John Kasich took time to bash Reince Priebus for endorsing Trump.
“I’m not happy about it.”
Kasich’s harsh criticism came after Trump’s resounding win in the Indiana primary. Ted Cruz was quick to see the writing on the wall and promptly suspended his campaign. Kasich, on the other hand, launched a bizarre tirade of contradictions.
“Until someone has 1,237 bound delegates, there is no presumptive nominee. On to California!” a statement released by the Kasich campaign read.
A few hours later, the Kasich camp was singing a different tune, suspending the campaign:

In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Kasich attempted to explain his conflicted state, and took aim at RNC chairman Reince Priebus. “I wanted to win, and I wanted to get to an open convention,” Kasich told CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
“When Indiana happened, and you had the chairman of the Republican Party endorse Trump, which I thought was completely inappropriate…”
Cooper interrupted Kasich, asking him to clarify as if he didn’t believe his ears.
“Well, I’m still there. What? You know…” Kasich stammered. “He just wanted to get this thing over with. I’m not happy about it.” But Kasich hinted he is willing to let it go. “We learn to forgive and forget,” he said.
Kasich also disclosed that his campaign would not have been able to raise enough money to continue, and admitted he was “really conflicted” in the aftermath of the Indiana primary.
Considering Kasich never mentioned the fact that he was nowhere close to obtaining the delegates needed to secure the nomination, it sounds like the former candidate is still “really conflicted.”
