Hey Kasich, don't give me that do goody good bullshit.“And if I’m president, I am going to once and for all try to reunite Pink Floyd to come together and play a couple of songs,” he told CNN host Alisyn Camerota on Tuesday night. “And since we have so much trouble in America with our finances, I’m going to (ask the band to) start with a little song they created called ‘Money.’”
But wait, there's more:
Earlier, Kasich called Floyd co-founder Roger Waters a “remarkable artist” and said he didn’t have to think for a second when Camerota asked him to name his favorite concert.All of this is very strange. Kasich is a Republican and Waters is a socialist. Without going into details let's just say that the pro-war Kasich is quite different than the anti-war Waters.
“I saw ‘The Wall’ in Pittsburgh and it was absolutely incredible,” he said.
It's easy to imagine what Roger Waters might say to John Kasich:
So when someone like Howard Stern...Ha!
When he says you want the Jews sent back to concentration camps, how do you feel?You know, I wouldn't waste a single one of my precious breaths on that asshole, and I just did. That was a waste of breath. Let's move on.
With all that in mind, I'm sure its annoying that everyone asks you about a Pink Floyd reunion that will obviously never happen.But wait, there's still more:
I would refer you to my Howard Stern answer.
Do you mind summarizing that just a bit?
[Screaming] No, I’m not going to! Why don’t you just ask me my favorite fucking color? You know, this can’t get any more dumb than that. Everybody knows the answer. And everybody asks the question again and again! It’s just so dumb. I'm sorry to get testy.
Let’s talk about Donald Trump. Are you horrified he’s doing so well in the polls?Let's repeat this bit, while remembering that Kasich is one of the Republican candidates: "You cannot look at any of those Republican candidates and not be horrified. They are so charged up with wanting to murder everybody in the world. I know I should get into hot water for saying this, but their attitudes are so fascist, all of them, that it's very hard to listen to any of them." Kasich's campaign promise doesn't look very promising.
Yes, its horrifying, of course. It's entirely horrifying. But then, you cannot look at any of those Republican candidates and not be horrified. They are so charged up with wanting to murder everybody in the world. I know I should get into hot water for saying this, but their attitudes are so fascist, all of them, that it's very hard to listen to any of them. Trump is particularly obnoxious. He thinks he’s clever because he made a few bucks and has a crappy TV show. And obviously he's not. He doesn't have a smart bone in his body.
But wait, there is also this bit about socialism:
I just think the term "socialist" freaks a lot of people out.I know why I like Pink Floyd, "The Wall" and Roger Waters, but I can't for the life of me figure out why John Kasich does.
Socialism is a good thing! What is wrong with socialism? You are the only country that I've ever heard of that buses its kids to school in the morning. What is that if not socialist? I am serious! I know nowhere else in the world. Then you go, "What the hell is that about?" "Well, we don't want our kids to walk through dangerous neighborhoods to get to school, so we send a bus to pick them up at their front door and take them home afterwards." And you go, "Wow, great." That is pure socialism, and it is correct.
You can stop waiting now.
That should do it, Roger. Thanks for doing this.Feel the Bern...
You know what you need, don't you?
