Nothing has been more disingenuous this entire campaign season – including Donald Trump’s entire schtick – than John Kasich pretending to be a nice guy for like a week in New Hampshire.

Chris Matthews: Ted Cruz “operates below the level of human life”

I kid you not. I did not make up that quote. I’ve really given up trying to figure out how Chris Matthews keeps his job, and of course, it is not much of a coincidence that this happened on Scarborough’s show considering he is obviously in the bag for Donald Trump.
