Did you see the touching moment of Gov John Kasich and the young man during a town hall at Clemson University? The media hasn’t been covering it as much as they do when candidates mess up. They prefer blowing negatives out of proportion so “nice” moments don’t fit that narrative.
Compared to all the candidates in the Presidential race, Gov Kasich is the “quiet, nice guy”. He cares for people, and has been criticized for that characteristic when he used Medicaid to care for poor people, homeless and drug users. Gov Kasich has often spoke of the dark place he went into after his parents were killed by a drunk driver. He struggled with questions on his faith. This young man has had similar recent travails. This brief video illustrates that compassion.
