John Kasich On Face The Nation: I Probably Wouldn’t Have Signed North Carolina’s Hate Law [VIDEO]

Mediaite recaps:

Republican presidential candidate John Kasich said this morning that he probably wouldn’t have signed a bill similar to the anti-trans one recently passed in North Carolina. He dismissively said that “we are not having this issue in our state” about religious liberty and talked at great length about balancing religious liberty with respect.

Kasich avoided getting into the specifics of the “bathroom” bill, which––in addition to rejecting anti-discrimination law––demands that everyone must use the bathroom of the gender on their birth certificate.

He complained, “Why do we need to write a law every time we turn around in this country?”, and said, “Chill out, get over it if you have a disagreement with somebody.” (It’s not clear if he was specifically referring to the people behind the anti-trans legislation.)
