Kasich brought up "The Daily Show" while calling Trump unfit for the presidency.

"I mean, it’s like a panoply of mistakes and outrageous statements. You know what it is with Donald? It's just a stream of consciousness," he said on ABC's "Good Moning America"

"We're dealing in such a serious time with the problem of global security, terrorism and here at home very poor economic growth, many feeling as though they've got no future. You can't operate like this. You are going to be president of the United States. People around the world must be having a field day, and you know what, Donald ought to be happy about is that Jon Stewart’s not running 'The Daily Show.' "

Kasich was slamming Trump for saying that women should be punished for having abortions if the procedure were made illegal. Trump later sought to clarify, saying he wanted to punish abortion providers, not patients.

Kasich also criticized the businessman for his suggestion to ignore the Geneva Conventions and for saying he would choose a Supreme Court justice who would investigate Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonForget the spin: Five unrefuted Mueller Report revelations Former senators launching effort to help Dems win rural votes Biden's announcement was a general election message, says political analyst MORE.
