Kasich Defends Eating Pizza With Fork: It Was ‘Scalding Hot, OK?’


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.” Read more at POLITICO.



  1. Kasich has class.

    He would govern with intelligent hands.

    The poor think that a rich man should be just like them. This guy has my vote if I do not like the opposition.

    Scary to think a guy would be called very unorthodox or unexciting for using a fork. I would think he has manners.

    That is exactly what the GOP hates.

    How terrible. Look at the Trump/Cruz result.

    No manners and no esteem.

    Such is the parade of the criminals.

    Time has better alternatives.

  2. Inauthentic from the outset: At what kind of “pizza joint” do they serve pizza on a real plate with silverware and cloth napkins?
