Kasich Awkwardly Jokes to CNN’s Burnett About VP Slot: ‘You’re Pretty Smart’

burnett kasichJohn Kasich called into CNN tonight and, um, things got a little awkward.

The Ohio governor was on a tear about the attacks he’s getting from Ted Cruz‘s campaign, including the suggestion he’s angling to be Donald Trump‘s VP nominee. Kasich told Erin Burnett, “There’s more chance of you being Donald Trump’s vice president than me.”

And then this happened:

“Although you could be my vice president. You’re pretty smart, you know all the economics, are you available?”

Burnett and Kasich shared a laugh as Burnett said, “What a proposition.”
