Right After GOP Debate Kasich Says Stunning 6 Words About Trump – It’s Not What You Think

Following Thursday’s Republican presidential debate, primary voters rushed to sing the praises of their favorite candidates. For many Americans, however, including one who was on the debate stage, these performances are not expected to change the trajectory of next Tuesday’s delegate-rich, 12-state primary election day.

“Nobody’s going to win but Trump,” Ohio Gov. John Kasich told a CNN reporter just minutes after the debate concluded.

While he predicted brash front-runner Donald Trump will run the tables on March 1, he did acknowledge that there might be one anomaly in Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s home state.

“Well, look,” Kasich said, “I don’t know that, OK? It’s very, very close.”

Cruz has been leading Trump in several Lone Star State polls this week.

Though Kasich might be writing off many of the delegates up for grabs on Tuesday, he made it clear that he still sees a path to victory for his campaign.

“I will come out of Vermont, Montana, Massachusetts,” he said. “We’re spending a lot of time in Virginia. We hope that those will be productive for us.”

Beyond that, he said he hopes to gain momentum across predominantly northern states, with one Deep South exception.

“And then we’ll move from that to Michigan and Mississippi,” he said, “where we think we’ll have a good shot.”

By the time the primary reaches his home state, Kasich hopes to have already established a dominating campaign.

“When it goes north, when it trends to Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, you know, Michigan, and then over to New York and New Jersey and Connecticut,” he concluded, “who do you think is going to come north and be able to beat me there?”

BREAKING: Trump Receives Unexpected ‘Establishment’ Endorsement That Could Change Race

After ending his presidential bid in the wake of a sixth-place finish in the New Hampshire primary, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s endorsement became a topic of speculation among political pundits.

In a press conference Friday, Christie announced which GOP candidate has his support.

“I am proud to be here to endorse Donald Trump for president of the United States,” he said.

The high-profile political endorsement came on the heels of Trump’s first congressional endorsements, which he received from Republican congressmen Duncan Hunter and Chris Collins earlier this week.

Within minutes, Christie’s announcement gained widespread traction among social media users. Several Twitter users suggested the endorsement was a step toward securing a cabinet position in a potential Trump administration.

“Attorney General then Supreme Court,” one user predicted.

“Woah!,” another replied. “I think I see a possible VP!”

Others recalled the bitter rivalry between Christie and Marco Rubio in the days leading up to the New Hampshire primary.

“Surprised he didn’t endorse Rubio,” a commenter wrote. “They are such good friends.”

A few more cynical social media users insisted the billionaire front-runner paid Christie for the endorsement.

Bristol Palin Just Responded To Everyone Saying She ‘Lost’ Custody Battle With 6-Word Truth Bomb

Bristol Palin’s first out-of-wedlock child caused some controversy during her mother’s 2008 vice-presidential bid. Since then, the younger Palin has been embroiled in a contentious custody battle with her son’s father, Levi Johnston.

According to an update recently posted to — and subsequently deleted from — Johnston’s Facebook profile, the prolonged legal drama has finally come to an end. He referenced the “seven years” and “around $100,000” he has spent in an effort to join his former partner in “successfully co-parenting” 7-year-old Tripp Johnston.

The social media post continued with a message to other fathers in a similar situation.

“I want to say that even though fathers in this country don’t usually have the upper hand in court,” Johnston wrote, “I encourage every father to never give up on fighting to keep their kids in their life. It’s always worth it.”

While he affirmed that life is “really looking up” from his perspective, Bristol Palin apparently took exception to her ex-fiance’s side of the story.

“Always be careful of what you hear about a woman,” she wrote on Instagram. “Rumours [sic] either come from a man that can’t have her or a woman who can’t compete with her.”

In a later post, she included a photo of herself, her son, and a daughter from another relationship.

“These babies are my world,” she wrote in the photo’s caption, “and I will always be doing what is best for them.”

Attempting to explain the custody situation as the best thing for her family, Palin insisted there were no losers in this custody battle.

“Every child deserves two loving parents,” she said, “so I will continue to encourage that no matter what. I have never, and will never, keep them from having a positive relationship with their fathers.”

Watch: Candace Cameron Bure Freaks Out Over Trump Supporters ‘I Can’t Wrap My Mind Around This…’

The hosts of ABC’s The View discussed the latest Donald Trump news this week, specifically dissecting the results of a controversial recent poll.

Last month, YouGov and The Economist conducted the survey, finding that 2 in 10 of the Republican presidential front-runner’s supporters believe slavery should not have ended in the U.S.

Whoopi Goldberg asserted the news is a direct result of Trump’s outreach to “poorly educated” voters.

“Maybe it was tricky,” she said of the wording used in the poll, “… but it doesn’t change the fact that these seem to be going along with the kind of rhetoric that we have heard about black people, immigrants.”

New Poll on Trump Supporters and Slavery“It’s not ignorance, it’s racist,” says Joy Behar in response to the new poll on Donald J. Trump supporters and slavery.

Posted by The View on Thursday, February 25, 2016

Candace Cameron Bure said the results are baffling, insisting that she was not defending Trump or his acolytes when arguing that some of the respondents were likely confused by the question.

“I want you to know from my opinion, I can’t wrap my mind around this,” Bure said. “I can’t believe that there are people that would still think that that’s OK.”

After reiterating that she could not comprehend the ostensibly pro-slavery responses, Bure concluded, “I think it was a tricky poll. I think people didn’t really understand what they were being asked.”

Goldberg then engaged Joy Behar in a debate over whether the poll identified racism or ignorance among the 20 percent who favored slavery.

“They generally run hand in hand,” Goldberg said. “You can be very smart and still be ignorant.”

Watch: The 1 Thing This Business Owner Requires ALL Employees To Do Will Have Libs’ Heads Spinning

As gun control remains a major issue of contention among many Americans, business owners have often taken sides in the debate. In some cases, employees have intentionally violated no-gun policies in the interest of their own safety, ultimately being able to use the weapon to fend off attackers.

Other entrepreneurs, however, have taken a much different stance. One such example is Lance Toland, owner of an Atlanta-based insurance company.

“We made a conscious decision in our firm to protect ourselves,” he said.

Toland recently announced the early results of a new policy requiring his employees to obtain a concealed-carry weapons permit. Though his largely female staff is encouraged to bring their firearms to work, it is not a requirement. In any case, everyone in his employ will receive a powerful pistol upon completing the applicable training course.

When he learned a longtime employee — who was also a highly skilled firearms instructor — would be leaving the company, he said it created a “void” that his new pro-gun policy will help fill.

“With the presentation of their license, they all got a 410 Judge pistol,” Toland said of his current staff.

In a recent Fox News Channel interview, Toland explained that he became serious about protecting his employees and clients after another local insurance company was robbed.

“You can’t rely on the police to be there,” he reasoned. “They’re going to be there eventually, but they’re not going to be there when the perpetrator comes.”

Not only is his staff excited, he said many clients “are high-fiving when they hear this” and “think it’s the best thing for a company to mandate gun ownership and be responsible.”
