Perfect. And perfectly believable: Trump first offered the VP job to Kasich, saying this:
Donald Trump wants to be Queen Elizabeth; he's in it for the crowds, the parades, the castle, and the horse-drawn carriage. The work? That's for the Prime Minister who, in this case, happens to be a guy who denies there's a connection between cigarettes and cancer, who's voted a bunch of times against veterans' benefits of various sorts, who (of course) denies climate change and doesn't believe in evolution (course requirements), who's signed anti-LBGT laws that even businesses in his own state demanded be changed.
The fakery that's been obvious is now even more so. Except that to his followers it's not; and if it were, evidently it wouldn't matter. How that can be I haven't a clue. Other than, yet again, to marvel at the success of Roger Ailes, et al, in creating a mass of incurious people, wholly disinterested in reality. But mad. Mad as hell. At everyone not exactly like them. In Donald Trump they see that reflected. And that's all that matters.
