Former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland isn’t holding back in the home stretch of his challenge to Republican U.S. Sen. Rob Portman.

The Democrat from Duck Run took aim at Portman and Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump in an impassioned speech to Athens County Democrats this past Thursday.

“There’s a freedom that comes with being a little behind. I feel like I can say anything I want to say, anything that’s in my heart,” Strickland said. “And what’s in my heart is this: Donald Trump is ignorant, he’s bigoted, he’s intolerant, he’s divisive, and he should never be president of this […]

I despised Richard Nixon. That said, I would vote for him over Donald Trump in a heartbeat. At least that venal, rat bastard knew how the world and politics worked. The latter he understood intimately.

Trump’s favorite mantra now is how the election will be stolen in “those” communities. As he says, “You know what I mean.” Yes Donald, we do all too well.

What type of creep looks at the photos of tank-like Humvees and police officers in military-grade combat gear facing down Standing Rock Sioux protestors trying to protect their water supply and thinks, “Those cops need some help. Let’s get our state in on this chewy clusterfk.”

What kind of unconscionable dickweed sees pictures of protestors shot in the face with rubber bullets and decides that his own state troopers should be involved, pulling the trigger, blasting the sound canon, spraying the mace?

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, apparently.
