After his unsuccessful effort to stop Donald Trump’s nomination in 2016, [John] Kasich was one of the few Republican Trump critics who never came around to an endorsement of the mogul, and even wrote in John McCain’s name on his November ballot. So perhaps it’s not surprising that he has become the most prominent Republican pol, so far, to call for Trump’s impeachment, as CNN reported:

Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich said President Donald Trump should be impeached, a major switch for a former Republican presidential candidate who had previously said there was not enough evidence to impeach the President.

Kasich, who’s a CNN senior political commentator, told CNN’s Ana Cabrera Friday the “final straw” for him was White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney’s Thursday admission that military aid was withheld from Ukraine in order to pressure that country for investigations into Democrats.

The article goes on to state the following:

Perhaps Kasich’s position is a harbinger of things to come — if not from other Republican pols then for previously Republican voters — or perhaps he will remain isolated. But it’s clear he’s a symbol of how rapidly his party, and particularly its conservative wing, has moved into Trump’s orbit, leaving him in principled opposition.

In the interview on CNN, Kasich accused Trump of withholding vital aid to Ukraine for political reasons, not due to a policy disagreement–which would have been more typical of an administration.

“This behavior, in my opinion, cannot be tolerated and action is gonna have to be taken,” the former Ohio governor said.

Greta Van Susteren, the host of “Full Court Press,” questioned Kasich’s announcement, considering his past disapproval of Trump.

“[F]inal straw?” She tweeted. “Kasich has not liked Trump since day 1 (would not even go to 2016 Repub convention and it was in his own state where he was gov).”

Anti-Trump figures reacted with praise for Kasich, however.

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Cali.) tweeted, “John Kasich recognizes that the lawlessness of @realDonaldTrump is not a partisan issue, it’s an American issue.”

Liberal actress Alyssa Milano tweeted, “Republican, John Kasich, states exactly why he is for impeaching Trump. This is what true patriotism looks like. #PatriotNotPartisan.”

“Whoa!” wrote CNN contributor Tara Setmayer. “Kasich now supports impeachment! Thank you @JohnKasich for speaking out!!!”

“Kasich is a statesman of principle. I might not agree on everything with him but I highly respect him,” wrote actor  W. Earl Brown.

    Alyssa Milano vision of patriotism is just about the same one as for a diplomatic prostitute such as Kamala Harris who left her senile legs and stupid mouth wide open exclusively for Willie Brown’s “democratic pleasure.”

      Wow you said it in a nutshell. It doesn’t take a gifted actress to act like an idiot it just comes natural any body can do it! Hollyweird and politics don’t mix look at Robert deniro. Good actor but so off the charts angry and nasty! Just like Milano! Doesn’t even know what a true Patriot is!

    Can’t just be a man like governor Huckabee and say more people voted for Trump than me.
    Was honored to even be a candidate for the President of the United States
    That’s The difference between someone with class and someone who is a prick.

    Lost all respect for Kasich when he began to act like the job of President was his during the debates. What a jerk.

    Kasich needs to go on a sore loser show with Hillary! Keep up the rhetoric losers! Trump’s too smart for y’all. The more y’all talk, (which is like a fart in the wind) the more Democrates switch to Republicans for Trump, so keep being idiots, we wouldn’t have it any other way! Your tongue is like a shovel, it will dig your own grave, just like CNN lowest ratings ever!
